So what does $10 or 10 mean in Lucy's $10 or 10 First Annual Kids Charity Concert?
Lucy's goal is to raise money and collect needed items for the below charities. To do that, she's created the $10 or 10 ticket price.
MAKE YOUR BEST BID & HELP DOUBLE THE MONEY WE RAISED
WEDNESDAY MAY 6th - WEDNESDAY MAY 13th at MIDNIGHT
Thank you to everyone who made my very first kid's charity concert a rockin' success. We raised just over $1,400 for the charities. That doubles how much I've donated over the last three years! BUT...everyone was so mesmerized by the music that they forgot to bid on several amazing silent auction items. With your help, we can DOUBLE or TRIPLE the amount of money we raised for the charities.
Tickets to Lucy's Second Annual Kid's Charity Concert are $10 OR 10 Donated Items to the Food Drive at the Entrance. If you decide to donate items, please take a look at the attached list of Best Foods To Donate To A Food Drivethat the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank sent me. Here's the info it contains:
Let’s take a timeout...and help us tackle childhood hunger. 42 million people are facing hunger. That is 1 out of every 8 people. Out of those 42 million people, 13 million are kids. We all need to help to lower this number. Since the super bowl is coming up, here is a few ways you can help while getting ready for the big game.
Community Hunger Challenge #1: We challenge you to join the Souper Bowl of Caring movement.
Community Hunger Challenge #2: We challenge you to give back with Share A Square Meal. It is just like your regular football squares with a good twist to it. All you have to do is have your friends buy different squares for the super bowl. Then you have the winners get half the money and the other half goes to the charity of your choice like the Los Angeles Food Bank.
Community Hunger Challenge #3:I am Lucy and I challenge you to try to eat on $4 a day. For the next 5 days I am going to try to eat healthy for as little as possible. To do so, I will be making recipes from Leanne Brown’s cookbook called Good and Cheap. I challenge you to join me and try to eat healthy on $4 a day. And when I say "a day" I mean breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. I know it sounds impossible, but families in poverty have no choice but to live like that.
The band idea started when two brothers, Levko & Lys performed with drums and guitar at their after school RockStar class while at Marquez Elementary. Back in Topanga, siblings Paria and Wiley performed at their school’s RockStar program. When both boys went back to Topanga Elementary, all 4 friends got together at another Rock Star class and included Kalyna, who sang their original song Coyotes of Topanga at the Avalon, in January 2015. All the band friends have lived or gone to school in Topanga, and have grown up watching bold coyotes frolic all over the canyon.

Mollie Hogan, the founder and Executive Director of the Nature of Wildworks, started her organization out of the love in her heart for animals in need. Back in 1993, Mollie was working at the LA Zoo, more specifically a show called Wild in the City. When the show came to an unexpected end, the animals were all transferred to their new temporary home, the Moorpark Teaching Zoo, where Mollie was an instructor.
