Congressman Adam Schiff, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez will join LA Family Housing and actor and comedian P.J. Byrne for the virtual fundraiser Home Together on Thursday, June 25 to raise awareness and funds for their work to end homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Musical performances include Grammy award-winning artist India Arie, and actor Ed Helms will join other celebrities including Kristen Bell in a virtual version of the annual LAFH Awards Gala, which hopes to raise to help house the homeless.
Since the Stay At Home order was enacted, LA Family Housing has moved more than 450 people indoors, provided 1,300 meals a day to families in need, and partnered with L.A .County to temporarily convert four motels to new shelters for people at risk of being infected with coronavirus.
Home Together will provide guests with the opportunity for an at-home experience with special menus from restaurant partners Angelini Osteria and Big Sugar Bakeshop, as well as a tasting flight of eight California Coastal Wines from In Good Taste. A portion of the proceeds for each purchase goes directly to LA Family Housing.
Deadline to place an order is June 19. Guests can also support their favorite local eateries with a free delivery code from Postmates for the first 300 guests to RSVP.
