On Sunday, May 17th, I had the pleasure of attending a local fundraiser (with my godson Rocky in tow) thrown by a group of ladies called the Venice Angelinos. The group partnered with a non profit called “Help for Orphans”, and the fundraiser and silent and live auctions raised funds to help build a water well for the children of Limbe Academy in Haiti. Wine was sponsored by local vintners Tanner Defoe and Bandolet Wines, and beer was provided by House Beer (a Unique Camp and Highbrow Hippie favorite!). I personally donated a ‘Highbrow Hippie Haircolor consultation and makeover’, which was featured in the live auction along with a limited edition Venice Beach print from Steven Lake Photography.
Other sponsors and auction donations included:
UNIF Musical instruments/amps by local musician BOC
Help for Orphans International
AGAIN Apparel – dresses
Art piece by Kana Manglapus
Mary Breedlove Pilates Session
Steven Lake Photography – 1 hour Portrait
Hip’Tique Gift certificate
Bones and Feathers Jewelry
Nordstrom Gift Certificate
Tanner DaFoe Wines
One-Nine Design event planning
It’s not too late to donate to this awesome cause. Every bit helps, and every dollar raised will go directly to this impoverished community.
