Lend Help, Great Walk, Holiday Party, Divulge, Holiday Tour
It’s been a tragic week for Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. Here are some suggestions on how to help and support so many fellow residents in need. What better way to ring in the Thanksgiving holiday. To dispel the myths that nobody walks in LA, why not take a break from the stress and join “The Great Los Angeles Walk” tomorrow. If you love dance and film culture, you won’t want to miss out on “Divulge Dancers’ Film Festival”. Tickets are now on sale for the LA Conservancy “Holiday Highlights Tour.” Speaking of the holidays, you do NOT want to miss the “Magical and Merry Holiday Party” thrown by The Spirited Woman and The Three Tomatoes. Our first Holiday Party collaboration and celebration. And…Happy Thanksgiving Tomatoes!
Lending a Helping Hand
Our esteemed LA Times columnist Steve Lopez . puts it best; “One California calamity after another, and yet we endure.” Yes, this great state, its strong cities, it’s resilient residents and its incredibly heroic Firefighters, Law Enforcement and First Responders will ENDURE…always. That is just one of the reasons we love California. AND we will always find ways to help. I’ve listed a few suggestions for you Tomatoes that I have triple checked.
There are no words adequate enough to express the horror of the tragedy at “The Borderline Grill” in Thousand Oaks. Even though these seem such small gestures, all we can do is reach out to help, support, embrace and offer our deepest sympathy to the families of the victims. And never forget while hoping for a day when tragedies like this are finally a thing of the past.
I’ m sure, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that our brave & courageous Firefighters, Law Enforcement and First Responders are Heroes. Soldiers and warriors risking their lives and their sanity to do battle with powerful human and environmental forces in conditions that are unimaginable. We must let them know our respect, appreciation and support for the value of their contributions and sacrifice know no bounds.
To Help the…FIREFIGHTERS
And for those who have lost everything in these fires including lost loved ones, all we can do is keep them in our hearts and send help.

After hitting the ocean and taking celebratory photos, there will be a celebratory after party.
