We've never made a secret of our abiding love for charity galas and parties for a cause, but even we can admit that some causes are more worthy than others. Sure, that foundation for cross-eyed Golden Retrievers in Santa Monica is making a positive difference or whatever, but there's really no comparison to a organization that helps real human beings in distress, right here in Los Angeles. That's why we're so impressed with the work that Inner-City Arts does providing a safe haven for some of L.A.'s most deserving kids right in the heart of Skid Row, and why we're thrilled that their Summer On 7th annual gala, which went down on Saturday, was a rousing success.

We've never made a secret out of our love for charity fundraisers. A party combined with an opportunity to benefit a worthy cause, and maybe even learn something? We're on board. But even we have to admit that not all fundraisers are created equal. That's why we're so excited for Inner-City Arts' annual Summer On 7th event, happening July 21 on their amazing Downtown campus. With top notch food, drink and entertainment to equal Inner-City Arts' extraordinary work with local children, Summer On 7th is a night you won't want to miss, and we've got all the details. More»
It's safe to say that without a robust education in the arts, many of our city's best and brightest people would have never found success. Even beyond the movie stars, visual artists and musicians that call Los Angeles home, have proven that arts education improves literacy, spatial reasoning, and every other conceivable metric of early success, all of which can be translated simply into a better chance at lifelong success in any field. And while arts education in our school system has too often been a victim of impossible budget choices, programs like DTLA's Inner-City Arts have stepped up, providing free-to-student, professional in-studio arts education to thousands of the city's most disadvantaged children.

Within two days of being in L.A., Prince William and Kate Middleton managed to turn Hancock Park on its ear, catch up with David Beckham, take a helicopter ride, play some polo, and get comfortable enough to touch Babs Streisand on her shoulder. But for the third and final day of their L.A. tour, instead of more hobnobbing with Hollywood at swanky events, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent time exercising their charitable sides in some of the seediest parts of L.A. Well, that is before squeezing in one last high-end celebrity shmoozathon on the way to the airport. Let's observe... More»
Lets face it, it's cool to dork out and be connected with all the latest gadgets. And in no other setting is that more true than the official week-long celebration of all things social media. Fashionistas and designers have Fashion Week, while tech-savvy Tweeters have Social Media Week, which kicked off in our city Monday night with the opening party for Social Media Week L.A. 2010. More»
