On June 11th in Downtown Los Angeles, musicians, philanthropists, and celebrities joined together at the Palace Theatre in Downtown, Los Angeles for We Can California’s The Care Concert: There’s No Place That’s Home to raise funds and awareness to the homelessness crisis in Southern California. Kelly Osbourne, Madeline Zima, and Karina Smirnoff were the Masters of Ceremonies for the evening. The meaningful event included a successful silent auction, a VIP cocktail reception, and many lovely duets and musical performances.
The Care concert was a beautiful evening where success and generosity came together to truly impact the homelessness crisis that is so prevalent in Southern California, with 100% of the money raised being given directly to those in need through the work of Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission and The Teen Project.
The host committee consisted of celebrities who hold this cause close to their hearts, including Vivica A. Fox, Melissa Rivers, Melia Kreiling, Laraine Newman, Lisa Loeb, Esai Morales, as well as Karina Smirnoff and Madeline Zima.
The Care Concert helped to raise the much needed funds and awareness to the homelessness crisis in Southern California. The Get Together Foundation was founded by Kevin Wachs, co-founder of THE TRIBE and Earthly Body, which have raised huge amounts for worthy causes over the years.
THE TRIBE is a collective of LA-based session and touring musicians and vocalists, including a variety of famous artists who gather to perform for various causes, using their creative skills to raise money and awareness. Proceeds from their events have gone to a number of charities that help people and the environment.
The event was a resounding success resulting in funding for these amazing charities who help LA’s homeless get back on their feet. We look forward to the next one with hope in our hearts for an eventual end to LA’s homelessness crisis.
