Pat Furey for Mayor fundraiser at Outback Steakhouse

Tuesday afternoon, August 20, the South Bay and Los Angeles area business owners and professionals held a fundraiser for Torrance Councilman Pat Furey’s campaign for Mayor of the City of Torrance at the Outback Steakhouse, who donated the food. Those that attended were treated to some very good food to go along with the networking and obligatory speeches. In addition to the business owners and professionals in attendance, Pat Furey was introduced by Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who was accompanied by her husband, Ambassador Sidney Williams. There were also several officials from surrounding cities like Lomita, Hawthorne and Lawndale in attendance to show their support for Councilman Furey’s election bid.

Councilman Furey spoke for a while, telling his history and his visions for the future of Torrance. He also talked about the lack of foster families in Torrance and a new push that is going on to change that. I have known the councilman for more than 20 years and nothing has changed; he has always been involved helping kids and helping the city overall. That is why I am putting my support behind his campaign. He explained that is costs between $75,000 – $100,000 to run a campaign of this size, if you would like to help in any way, please visit the Pat Furey for Mayor website, Continue reading

4th Annual Beer, Art & Music Festival October 5, 2013

BAM Fest 2012

Great craft beers for a great cause

The 4th Annual Beer, Art & Music Festival (BAM Fest) is returning to Santa Monica on October 5, 2013 and tickets are now officially on sale. BAM Fest will feature more than 30 craft breweries, four wineries, three bands, gourmet food trucks, several art galleries and open artist studios and four hours of fun.

BAM Fest is a fundraiser benefiting the 18th Street Arts Center, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization located in Santa Monica. The 18th Street Arts Center is a well-known and internationally respected alternative art space which has sponsored over 1,000 artists through their residency program. While enjoying the beer, food and music, many of these artists have opened their galleries to attendees of the event.

Tickets can be purchased online for $45 each; they will be $50 at the door if there are any tickets available by then; I would be somewhat surprised if there are, so if you want to come I recommend purchasing your tickets online ahead of time. Last year was my first time attending BAM Fest and everyone I talked to that had attended the earlier events told me it was the best one yet. As the 4th Annual BAM Fest is even bigger than last year, I expect to hear, “this was the best one yet” by October 6. I hope to see you there.

Fallen Riders benefit at the Tilted Kilt

On Saturday July 13, the California Fallen Riders Memorial Fund (CFRMF) held a fundraiser at the Tilted Kilt in Long Beach, CA. The CFRMF is a non-profit that is part of the national network of U.S. Fallen Rider Memorial Associations. Their goals include raising funds to assist the families of fallen riders, to promote motorcycle safety and awareness. Through fundraisers, motorcycle events and donations the California Fallen Riders raise funds to provide direct support to the families of fallen riders. This event was to raise funds for families in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Funds were raised with raffles and specials on beers provided by Firestone Walker Brewing Company and Coors with the monies going to the CFRMF. There were a few girls there to pose with bikes for a few dollars which also went to the CFRMF.

It was a pretty fun event with about 40-50 bikes showing up; a little more publicity the next time will improve the showing, I am sure. The Tilted Kilt is located at 6575 E. Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach, CA. This was only my second visit there but I have to say, the staff there are all quite friendly; I am sure I will return. Continue reading
