*Halle Berry, in collaboration with Jenesse Center Inc., will hold a “What A Little Love Can Do” estate sale in collaboration with Jenesse Center, 10 a.m. -5 p.m., Sun. Sept. 25 at Lightspace, 8755 Washington Blvd. in Culver City.
“What A Little Love Can Do” Estate Sale is being held to fund programs that serve Jenesse families overcoming domestic violence. Items for the sale were personally selected and procured by Halle Berry for this event.
The “What A Little Love Can Do Project,” headed up by Halle Berry and top designers, Patrick Delanty, David Brian Sanders and Lindsay Jackson, was initiated to enhance the living and educational facilities for women, children and men needing to escape the dangers of domestic violence.
“My belief is that by providing a safe, warm and beautiful space that is free of the horrors of the past, victims of domestic violence whose spirits have been broken can begin to heal, hope, dream and start again,” said Berry, founder of the project. “We have completed a space where children can go to get new clothing, have parties, play dates, play games, read, do art projects and have therapy. By engaging the children this way, it lays the foundation for healthy mental development and a belief that they are worthy far beyond their circumstance.”
Founded in 1980, Jenesse Center Inc. provides culturally sensitive programs, services and outreach efforts to families by providing a comprehensive, centralized base of support and services that ensures a transition from immediate crisis to stability and self-sufficiency. Housing women and children from 30 days up to two years through its 156-bed emergency and transitional shelters, Jenesse also provides a variety of support services to more than 1,000 families annually including mental health counseling, independent life skills classes, computer training, job referrals, after school programs for children, field trips, tutoring and legal assistance offering assistance with obtaining restraining orders for domestic violence victims
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served, compliments of First Picks Management.
