La Mirada Foundation Invites Community to Party for a Purpose
ANS News Release – For Immediate Release
LA MIRADA, CA (ANS) September 23, 2016) — The La Mirada Community Foundation is teaming up with nationally known “Clean Comedians” and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, for a for a Gala for a Cause, on October 14th at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.
Humor is often used to tear people down. But the producers of this comedy show hope to do some building up…literally. Is there a connection between humor and home repairs?
Michael Lord, President of the La Mirada Community Foundation, believes laughter may be the best medicine for helping local Veterans and seniors.
Michael says, “We are going to enjoy a fun evening of entertainment and assist some people who need home repairs.”
According to Hal Malkin, former Mayor of La Mirada, the beginning of the Foundation goes back to one generous woman. “Years ago, before her death, she gifted monies from the sale of her home were initially used to help fund the Foundation,” he said. “This Gala is in part possible because of her decision to pay it forward.”
