LOS ANGELES (July 18, 2011) – On July 26, 2011 TiroVino Wine Bar is opening their doors to their charity of choice; Women Like Us Hollywood in efforts to raise awareness and capital for the WLUH LA based mentorship program. Los Angeles artist and owner of Associated Clothing, Joel Raul partnered with coordinater Jenna Alegarbes and commissioned local, talented virtuoso’s to depict paintings of their interpretation of a question they posed. For the woman they asked, “Who are you as an empowered woman?” and for the men they asked, “What do you see as a powerful woman?” The “Women Like Art!” exhibit will feature many art mediums, such as, mixed art, charcoal, and acrylics with a wide variety of creative depictions on the said theme. Every artist will be donating 50%-100% of the proceeds to WLUH. On top of the art exhibit donations, TiroVino Wine Bar representative, Maurizio La Rosa, has agreed to donate 20% of the event’s bar tab to WLUH.
Founder and Co-President of Women Like Us Hollywood, Catt Sadler, will be hosting the event with the dynamic WLUH board members who are powerhouses in their own right. The event is an open invitation for Angelino’s to relax with friends after a long day of work. WLUH host monthly, premiere bar mixers as a light-hearted medium for Angelino’s to find out how they can make a difference. Quite simply, by showing up and buying a Signature WLU Cocktail Angelino’s CAN “Encourage. Empower. Engage”.
