This last Saturday, November 3rd, the Halton Pardee family attended Venice Arts’ 25th Annual Gala and had an incredible and impactful evening. As a sponsor and long-time supporter of Venice Arts, we were inspired to see the amazing work Venice Arts continues to do and we were honored to celebrate the creative and brilliant youth the organization serves.
It was an extra special evening as our very own Founder and CEO, Tami Pardee, was the honoree of the gala. Through our partnership with our own nonprofit, Life Change Warriors, and the youth at Venice Arts, Tami and our team had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with Venice Arts and really see and feel the impact they are making on the community. Venice Arts is a space for youth to feel creative and empowered to connect with their community and each other. It is a space for inclusivity and they are fostering the personal and professional growth in every youth that walks through their doors.
Venice Arts is a local non-profit in Venice that the Halton Pardee team has been supporting for years. Venice Arts’ mission is to ignite, expand, and transform the lives of Los Angeles’ low-income youth through photography and film education, and uses its participatory storytelling practices to amplify the voices of underrepresented communities around the world.
The evening was filled with great company, delicious food and drinks, and beautiful art. With incredible items in the silent auction and inspired guests raising the paddle, the night was a huge success, raising $148,500. We thank all of our friends and clients who joined us in supporting Venice Arts as event sponsors and guests.
It’s so important to us to support local organizations that are doing big things for our community and the people within it. We love Venice Arts and hope you will join us in supporting the incredible impact on this incredible local nonprofit. Click Here to donate directly.
