This last Thursday I had the privilege of immortalizing a gathering at Malibu Wines. The event was put together to celebrate a startup company that goes by the name of GO GOOD. Founders James Gilbert and Nicolette Rankin have a mission to Build the world's largest community of givers to close the gap between the world we have and the world we want. In other words, they are in the business of connecting large financial donors to the right charities. This event was to celebrate the people who've already done business with them and to continue spreading the word about this amazing undertaking.
The stage was set atop the hilly campground of the property at Malibu Wines. It was an open bar that offered the different varieties of wine available there. Guests were prompted to come dressed in all white. Thankfully the SOCAL heat wave had already begun to subside.
Among the attendees and active supporters of Go Good was Ex Prime Minister of Haiti, Laurent Lamothe. He announced that they would be hosting a lecture type presentation the day after in Venice where GoGood headquarters are located. Many other business moguls shared in the festivities that afternoon.
First of all, it has been a while since I last posted something on here. It's safe to assume that I've definitely been busy covering an array of events and I'm now playing major catch up to publicize it!
My very dear friend/entrepreneur, Ashley Sugarman, whom I've had the privilege to work with on various of her own projects, teamed up with The Homeless Health Care of Los Angeles to bring the arts and entertainment to homeless people in LA. She has such a big heart, and felt that despite where people are in life, they should be able to enjoy a little of what this town has to offer. She plans to put together, plays, art installations, dances, concerts, and other such events that people in unfortunate situations can participate in. For that, money needs to be raised, awareness shared, and what better way than to target the people that run this town. Hollywood moguls, and the youth that are so caught up in their own lives that they don't get to inform themselves about things outside their comfort zones.
Ashley put together a private screening event of the movie "Welcome to Me" with Kristin Wiig at the historic Groundlings Theater. A Q&A with writer, director, and producer of the movie followed the screening. I was there to snap photos of the festivities that surrounded the event!
