Music for a Cure is a non-profit that my friend Murphy and Julie Karges began in 2002. Devoted to bringing music to critically Ill children, MFAC is doing some truly impacting work. Murphy is the bass player in the band Sugar Ray, and was inspired to begin MFAC after a dear fan of theirs past away due to cancer. I truly believe music is one of the most healing, freeing, inspiring gifts that we have on earth. Take a minute and check out the slide show from the Fashion Rocks fundraiser at Seven Degrees (one of my favorite venues). Thanks to all of you who gave in support of what MFAC is doing. If you have any desire to give financially or musically, please go to musicforacure.org and connect with them! p.s. The song for this one…I just had to

This past sunday I had the priviledge of being a part of a unique intimate bridal soiree hosted by Fleur de Lis Events. It was an awesome time to connect with brides and grooms, hear about their lives and their wedding plans without the choas that can sometimes be at larger bridal events. It was hosted at Adina’s home (owner of Fleur de Lis) in Newport Beach. The sushi was amazing, Damon played good tunes, and I had a fun time shooting Alicia who was wearing her L’ezu dress! She is a queen for sure, so much fun! We had a great time and she knows how to work the camera. Check the slideshow! Also I must mention Newport Beach Winery, an award winning wines and amazing venue!
Last Thursday, Tosti Studios was once again thee place to be in Laguna Beach. (Can I say that??) It REALLY WAS a good time. Artists Michael Dowdell and Andrew M. Cole, showed new, smaller works, which is uncommon for them considering most of their work has been 5′x5′ and larger. Their work will be up till the end of November. Please stop by and see it if you haven’t had the chance yet. Call 949.715.9621 for an appointment or stop in Mon.- Fri. 11-5.
I’m continually amazed by my friends who come to join us, and I thought I’d mention a few of them. They are loving, brilliant people and they make my life so much richer.
Many Thanks to RIGHT gin and Metromint water for their contributions!
