People came out in droves to fill City Hall's outdoor atrium Friday evening for the city's sixth annual Summer Night on the Plaza, the only fundraiser for the Committee for a Clean & Beautiful Glendale.
Last year, the fundraiser generated about $15,000 for the city commission, which supports the city's graffiti prevention efforts as well as other beautification and community education efforts.
â€œWe are hoping to raise more this year because we have some awesome silent auction items,â€ said Sandra Rodriguez, the committee's liaison with the city.
Auction items included airfare, designer clothing, theme park, museum sporting events and theater tickets.
The committee recently completed its annual â€œI Love My Neighborhoodâ€ poster contest, which educates local students about litter and pollution prevention.
This year's winner was third-grader Michelle Tahmasian of Balboa Elementary School.
