On February 11, 2011 Laurie Elyse and Laurie Elyse Design sponsored the 2011 Grammy/MusiCares Person of the Year Award Ceremony. This year's winner was none other than Barbara Streisand. This star studded VIP event was a huge success. The auction was a hit with a bidding war over the custom works by Laurie Elyse. All of the money raised at the event benefit MusiCares and their work to provide financial assistance to musicians in need due to medical expenses and addiction recovery support. Photos from this amazing event are available in the album section of the Laurie Elyse Collection site as well as images of the pieces are on display now.
