Fabuloso Friday-City Hearts
Submitted by admin on March 27, 2009 - 10:30 am
Last spring I was invited by a friend LBL member, Lisa Elia, to participate in a fashion show to benefit City Hearts. I hadn’t heard of the organization but was happy to help Lisa in any way that I could. Well, I ended modeling Lilly Pulitzer apparel at the fundraiser held at The Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica. It was a great event and my introduction to City Hearts.
City Hearts: Kids Say YES to the Arts is a non-profit organization that provides visual and performing arts programs to transform the lives of the most disadvantaged, at-risk children by providing the highest quality arts education, training and experience. Established in 1984 by criminal defense attorneys, Sherry and Bob Jason. City Hearts was founded on the belief that the arts are the most powerful tools with which to communicate and rehabilitate troubled youth at risk of becoming involved with gangs and drugs. City Hearts has come to be an integral part of the preventive and rehabilitative effort in Los Angeles, inner city, and serves as a model for youth diversion programs across the country.
