See this week’s Santa Monica Mirror for my article, “Ovo Tickets to Benefit One Drop Foundation.” The article feataures “7 Days for a Better World,” a campaign created by Cirque Du Soleil to help riase funds for ONE DROP.
This incredible organization that helps impoverished communities around the world acquire access to clean water.
Gotta go to OVO…this is great show with an incredible cast…some really brilliant performances.
BTW, IF YOU ARE A VENDOR…..and are interested in showing your goods at the Miracle Mile Artwork, I am helping to book a couple of last minute vendor spots. It is FREE to set up a table, but they are asking that you donate 25% of all sales to the art walk. A great deal…but you must rsvp to reserve a space. There are only 4-5 left, so email me back ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
