Client Appreciation Event @ the Westchester Playhouse
August 12th, 2018
My clients, team and I had a marvelous time at the Westchester Playhouse watching a production of “Daddy’s Dyin’, Who’s Got the Will?” by the Kentwood Players. The production was wonderful, filled with laughs, heart and coincidentally dealt with issues of Estate Planning! We bought out the entire theater for the event and packed the house to the rafters. Our clients had a wonderful time. The cast even told us afterwards that we were the best and most enthusiastic audience they have had thus far! It was great to spend time with my clients and support one of the oldest and well-known community theaters in Los Angeles.

Congratulations to all the companies who participated to support the comfort and education of our community elders.
March for Our Lives L.A. – March 24, 2018
It was empowering to participate in the “March for Our Lives” last Saturday in Downtown LA. I was joined by my son Jason and my mentee Najely, who got her first experience with boots-on-the-ground social activism. Our Mayor Garcetti made a rousing speech to the crowd and we enjoyed spirited performances by QuestLove, Charlie Puth and Rita Ora. But the most touching and devastating sentiments came from the real life heroes: survivors from Majory Stoneman Douglas High School, Las Vegas, Columbine and LA children who have been personally affected by gun violence. Gun violence is a continuing national tragedy. Everyone needs to wake up and do everything we can to support gun control legislation and keep the future of our country safe! Does your Estate Plan contain contributions to important causes near and dear to your heart? Mine does!
Jazz Night @ Spaghettini’s – February 25, 2018
“Giving Back” is a Blast! I enjoyed every minute of this year’s Jazz Night at Spaghettini’s! I had a wonderful time listening to the musical stylings of Dave Koz! The event was sponsored by the Long Beach Boys and Girls Club. In the live auction, I won an afternoon boat trip with current HLN tv show host Micheala Pereira! I was happy to support a wonderful organization which is doing great things in the community! Listening to a smooth Jazz legend and supporting a worthy cause, pretty much a perfect evening in my book!
