Join us on Saturday, November 5th as OACLA has teamed with to throw a special charity event that highlights the power that innovative design can have on addressing homelessness! There will be live DJs, art on display, raffle and auction items, drinks, food trucks, as well as vendors from LA's design scene. Cardborigami mass produces temporary, portable shelters for disaster relief, and this program titled #youthployment2 is the second installment in which they hire homeless youth to construct the shelters while also providing education, a stable work environment, and tools for finding permanent work to lift themselves out of poverty.
Please RSVP and buy tickets below! 100% of proceeds from this event will fund the #youthployment program. If you are not local or cannot attend, you can still support the program by making a donation. Adult beverages are included.
We would like to also send a special thanks to the following OACLA volunteers for helping to plan the event: thanks to Sara, Victoria, Shaina, Fandra, Mokgadi, Ritsu, Carin, and Danielle for all your hard work! Also follow the event on the facebook page.
