Elf Foundation Raised $32,500 at CEDIA Event
The Elf Foundation announced that it raised $32,500 at its 10th Anniversary event at CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis.
Head Monster Noel Lee of Monster Cable was the winning bidder on the painting of Miles Davis that was drawn by Leon Speakers' Noah Kaplan during the reception Sept. 9. The sale's proceeds will benefit the foundation in full, in order to create ‘Rooms of Magic’ entertainment theaters for children in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, shelters and hospices nationwide.
“I’m always happy to support the Elf Foundation because of its unique mission, and the clear joy that these Rooms of Magic bring to children and families that depend on the distraction of entertainment during their difficult time,” Lee said in a statement. “When it turned out that the piece of art crafted that evening was none other than the legendary Miles Davis — one of my favorite musicians of all time — I had to have it for our office!”
“It was a complete coincidence that Noah’s inspiration would hit so close to home for one of our guests that evening — and in fact, Noel wasn’t even able to join us for the event,” Doug Weinstein, president of the Elf Foundation, said. “His team reached him in New York City, where he was promoting Monster’s celebrity-branded lines, including the Miles Davis Trumpet headphones, at Fashion Week. It’s one of those things that was meant to be.”
