At last month’s “On Broadway” gala, the annual fundraiser for performing arts and youth programs at Walnut Creek’s Lesher Center for the Arts, nearly 600 guests noshed and networked. They also bid on auction items that netted at least $250,000 for the Diablo Regional Arts Association, the Lesher’s nonprofit partner – a record!
