One of the City's great public spaces is celebrating a special achievement and you can play a special role in the festivities.
In honor of Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles turning a year old this week, Sprinkles has created a special strawberry pink cupcake for sale at its Figueroa and 7th Street (Figat7th) location. Sprinkles is donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of this special cupcake to support the park’s ongoing free programming.
As Chair of the Arts, Parks, Health, Aging, and LA River Committee, I want to make sure all our parks and public spaces thrive in the City of Angels. I'm thrilled to lend my name to this fundraising effort -- which runs from now until October 11th.
Grand Park will also celebrate its birthday with its annual free Daniel Pearl World Music Days Concert on Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. The event will feature an international blues collaboration of Cedric Watson (USA) and Sidi Toure (Mali). The two wil join with Los Angeles-based Ethiojazz ensemble, EthioCali, and KCRW’s Jeremy Sole at Grand Park for the birthday tribute event.
