Calling All Music Lovers, Trekkies and Art Connoisseurs; Feed Your Passion and Help Others in Need!

We are thrilled to be part of The charitybuzz Mother’s Day Auction that will be running through May 6th. A few of our supporters have donated one-of-a-kind items to be auctioned off with all of the proceeds going towards building more affordable housing in Los Angeles for deserving families. There is really something for everyone, so treat your mom, dad, brother, wife, or yourself (we won’t tell) because these are really gifts that keep on giving. Not only will you be investing in something that you, or your family, will have forever, but you will also be investing in a home that another family will have forever. Now, that’s something to make your mother proud!
