The third annual Sunset & Dine festival was held on October 2, 2014, and raised $4,000 for The Center at Blessed Sacrament.  Members of the Sunset & Dine committee last week presented the check to staff at The Center.

The Center serves as a hub for Hollywood 4WRD, a grassroots coalition of service providers, businesses, and community organizations working together to end homelessness in Hollywood. Since its inception in 2010 this network has collaborated to move over 300 chronically homeless individuals off the streets of Hollywood and into permanent housing.

“We were thrilled to be able to present this check to The Center to help them continue the good work they are doing here in Hollywood with our homeless neighbors,” Fabio Conti, committee chair and owner of Fabiolus Cucina, said.

Sponsors of the event included The Los Angeles Film School (Platinum Sponsor); The Hollywood Farmers Market / SEE-LABlessed Sacrament School 2015 CentennialEastownParamount Contractors & Developers (Presenting Sponsors); and Amoeba MusicAndrews InternationalLAArtsOnline.comNthoNetRush Copy & PrintSiren Studios, and The Taglyan Complex (Community Sponsors).
