Garden School Foundation Fundraising

Nat Zappia, director of the Garden School Foundation, has asked us to help spread the word about two fundraising activities to help continue and extend the work of the GSF:

On Tuesday, July 21, 2009, the GSF is hosting a fundraiser at the Peter Fetterman Gallery in Bergamot Station to benefit the Children’s Kitchen Garden at the 24th Street Elementary School. The reception runs from 6:30pm until 9:00pm. At 7:30pm attendees are invited to participate in a talk about the work of photographer Sebastião Salgado, whose striking images of Africa are currently on display at the gallery. Admission to the event is $35.00 per person; those interested in attending should contact Nat Zappia by email or by phone at 310.699.2902 (extension 23).

Throughout the month of July, Pourtal wine tasting bar is donating a portion of its Enomatic wine sales during its afternoon happy hour to the GSF. From Monday through Friday, 4:00pm until 6:00pm, a portion of Pourtal’s proceeds will benefit the Foundation’s work. Pourtal is located at 104 Santa Monica Boulevard in Santa Monica.
