California’s First and Oldest House Raffle, Grand Prize Winners


Palos Verdes Dream House Raffle, winners have been announced!

Proceeds from the 19th annual Palos Verdes Dream House Raffle, the first and oldest house raffle licensed in California, benefit the 91-year-old Palos Verdes Art Center’s exhibition, education, and outreach programs. The event makes the visual arts available, accessible and affordable to residents and visitors to Los Angeles County.


Funds raised by the 2022 Palos Verdes Dream House Raffle directly support PVAC programs like “Art at Your Fingertips,” a school-based outreach program reaching over 7,000 grade school children annually that inspires students to tap into their creative abilities by teaching art skills.

The raffle supports initiatives such as the art center’s “Special Mornings,” which offers special needs students from the Los Angeles Unified School District a chance to explore the world of art through personalized instruction and projects. Funds raised will also benefit The Studio School, which teaches year-round art classes to adults and children, and supports annual programs of curated exhibitions.
