LAFCO and The Silverlake Conservatory create a candle for your Conservatory

In an effort to support the Silverlake Conservatory of Music that he founded, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is putting on a silent auction so glamorous that it should officially divorce any associations with grade-school fundraisers. Counting Bill Clinton, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Shepard Fairey, and Damien Hirst among its supporters, the auction will take place at Flea’s home in LA on Oct. 16—which also happens to be the bassist’s birthday.

LAFCO and Dana Louise Kirkpatrick have designed a limited-edition candle for the event. With the scent of black tea, citrus, and lavender, it’s as soothing as it is celebratory.
