Darren and Joe celebrated with over 50 clients past, present and future at the annual client appreciation dinner, December 9, 2017. Held at the new Pollen restaurant(formerly FIX Coffee), guests dined to mediterranean fare and toasted to good times at this fabulous new spot for the neighborhood. Music was provided by The Po Boys -a local New Orleans jazz and funk 4-piece composed of banjo, tuba, flugelhorn, and drums.
As a fundraiser for the CCAC - Central City Action Committee, the group raised $820 dollars and 10 bags of food donations for local families in need. CCAC is also part of the city's anti-graffiti campaign and creates youth programs for the area. Overall, it was a wonderful event simply based on two words - thank you. We all have so much to be grateful for and it was great to give back to others for the night.
We're working on a video to capture the night. Stay tuned.
On a recent walk for the real estate business I realized just how old school Echo Park my partner Darren Hubert really is. Proof positive at Coronado and Elsinore etched into the sidewalk in front of his old house. I like the Madness song "Our House" reference there at 13 years old in 1983. Sweet.
