The Claremont Lewis Museum of Art hosted its annual fall gala at the Claremont Depot on Saturday. A full house of about 200 people honored Ligorio A. Calaycay, Jr., MD, with City Council member Corey Calaycay accepting the honor for his father. Over the course of 37 years, Ligorio — long known for his support of the arts and education — saw more than 30,000 patients at his Pomona practice for plastic and reconstructive surgery.

The museum’s current exhibition, Ferne Jacobs: A Personal World, was also a highlight, along with a lively paddle auction to raise funds for Project ARTstART. The total amount raised was $115,000 from the gala and $10,000 from the online auction. Courier photo/Peter Weinberger
