AUGUST 26 — On a summery evening in the outdoor courtyard of Sancho Gallery in Echo Park, friends, family, and supporters of the arts gathered to help raise money for the James Philip Ribiat-Finley Arts Endowment .
Organized by Stephanie Inagaki, designer of Miyu Decay, the Endowment was started in memory of James Philip Ribiat-Finley, her late fiance. The endowment is used to support local teens who are interested in a career in the arts. Stephanie asked many of her friends for donations and help with promotion and production of this event, and ended up with a wonderful turnout.
I donated several Chubby Bunny items to be used in the raffle, as well as helping with setting up the space earlier that afternoon. The event had performances, art for sale, a silent auction, and an epic raffle!
There was a really good turnout and it was so nice to see so many people supporting a worthy cause! Congrats to Stephanie and all of those who supported this event!
