Why A Benefit For Camp Max Straus?

 

Yesterday, someone asked me why I decided to sponsor a benefit for Camp Max Straus.

So here’s why…

I met my friend David in the 4th grade at Melrose Avenue Elementary School.  Yes the one a block away from Pink’s.  He had just moved to the Westside of LA from Boyle Heights, in East LA.  He lived with his single Mom and his older brother Harry.  It was 1959.

In the 60s during college, David decided to be a camp counselor and help underprovided kids.  He knew how hard it was growing up in the city with only one parent.  Never going on a family vacation, never having a Dad to play with or nurture him.

Obviously I never forgot that or the other numerous obstacles David overcame in his childhood.

David is planning to be at our event on Thursday, along with my parents, cousins and other extended family and friends. 

We’d love to have you join us.

  5. I am going to be out of town in a few weeks, so I have to stay in hotels at night. However, I am not sure how do the hotels count the hours of one night (I mean from certain time to another certain time as one night). Can someone help me on that?
