On October 12, So Cal was rocked with the senseless killing of eight people at Salon Meritage in Seal Beach. One of those killed was Michelle Fournier, a Lakewood resident. As a longtime Lakewood resident, I was in disbelief.
Brianne's Basics is proud to be participating in the Dollars For Dominic fundraising event THIS SATURDAY, November 5, from 2-6pm. The event will be at Tracy's Bar & Grill (5511 E. Spring Street in Long Beach). This event will benefit a trust for Michelle's children.
"For a $5 donation, attendees will enjoy hors d'oeuvres and entrees provided by Jill’s Gourmet to Casual Catering, and live music by MO50. Businesses and members of the community are encouraged to donate items for door prizes and a silent auction to be held at the event. Full menu and full bar are also available."
A Facebook page has been started for information & updates: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dollars-For-Dominic/288581451166745
We are donating a gift certificate to the raffle, and a customized doll for the silent auction, plus other assorted items.
We are participating in this event because as a mother I feel for her family. If I were in that position, I would want to know my children were being cared for as well.
If you're a local, I encourage you to attend. If you're a business, I encourage you to donate something.
I hope to see you, or your business, at the event. Thank you!
