Join us every Sunday night from 11pm to midnight as we start the new week with a rundown of what's going on in YOUR community.
As the charitable beneficiary, Kure It is excited to announce the fundraising campaign Rivals United for a Kure, inspired by the filming of A City Divided. A City Divided is a documentary highlighting the longstanding rivalry between the football teams of the University of Southern California and the University of California – Los Angeles. Kure It will equally donate all proceeds from the film to the USC and UCLA medical centers for cancer research.
There are many college football rivalries; however, the USC/UCLA rivalry remains unique since the schools share the city of Los Angeles, with only 12 miles of separation. A City Divided will feature the most memorable moments in the schools’ rivalry, with personal accounts from coaches, players and fans.
The movie is being filmed by Emmy Award winners Jack Baric and Barry O’Brien. The goal of the project is to unite students, alumni and fans of both schools in the mission of funding innovative cancer research.
Money donated to cancer research includes half the profits from the film’s DVD sales, all of the net proceeds from the red carpet film premiere and 15% of the overall budget for the film project.
From now until the Bruins and Trojans meet each other on the football field this November, we are reaching out to the Bruins community to raise funds and awareness for innovative research into underfunded cancers.
Don’t worry. The Trojans have their own fundraiser.
Yes. It is competitive.
And yes, we know about the intense rivalry between these two schools that are located less than 12 miles apart.
The Rivals United for a Kure campaign brings both sides together to unite on something we can all get behind: the fight against cancer. All of the money raised for Kure It Cancer Research will be granted to research projects at USC’s Norris Cancer Center and UCLA’s Jonsson Cancer Center. Our goal is to raise $1 million for each school, so we need your to rally your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues in support of the effort.
The mission of the ECF Art Center is to train adults with developmental disabilities into working fine artists. The Art Center Program also strives to create andincrease awareness and advocacy for those with developmental disabilities.
The Art Center Program consistently searches for support and distribution channels for the art to be shown and purchased, thereby providing a source of income for the clients and revenue for the Art Center. The increase in financial support will continue to sustain existing programs and allow for the development and implementation of new programs. Look through our "Portfolio" pages to preview art work. Please see the contact info below if you are interested in purchasing any of the artwork featured.
Begun in 1946, ECF is Los Angeles County's oldest and largest provider of services and training for children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities. Annually serving more than 2,300 people, ECF offers a variety of programs including its Art Center, which, since 1968 has provided adults with developmental disabilities a nurturing artistic environment, professional art training, and studio facilities. Over the years, the Art Center has received numerous awards and is nationally recognized for leadership in demonstrating that developmentally disabled individuals have the ability to excel in producing fine art.
Art Center participants range in age from 18 to 65 and often have multiple disabilities - mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism and/or emotional and psychiatric disorders. Many have been turned away by other programs for being "too difficult" or "too disturbed." Yet, at ECF, they succeed artistically and achieve professional recognition, a sense of heightened self-worth and a new career.
Instruction is offered in drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, ceramics and photography. Service is also offered in academics, independent living skills, counseling and behavior management. Exhibitions of the artwork are arranged throughout the year, providing artists with important earnings from the sales. In addition, the Art Center is open to the public and accepts individual and corporate commissions. If you are a business, an interior designer, or an individual collector who is interested in purchasing or commissioning works, please call 213-627-7374 or email email@example.com.
