Sept 2009 - The West Los Angeles IAHSP Chapter held our annual charity event for the 2009 World Wide Staging Service Week (WWSSW) event at the Richstone Family Center in Hawthorne, CA for it`s annual charity event. Richstone provides shelter, counseling, and resources to help abused and emancipated foster children and young adult girls transition back into society.
Our chapter came together on Sept 12, 2009 and brought in all kinds of furniture donations, vendor services, repairs, painting and lot`s of Staging ! We had prepared for months and recieved many donations from Fashion Furniture, Brooks Furniture, Lowes Hardware, Beach Drapery, and many more. We had some beautiful painting in many rooms provided by Eyedeal Interiors and Albert Hernandez Painting. We had cleaning services, ceiling fan installations, drywall repairs, and many others. Our vendors spent the better part of a week ahead painting, cleaning and fixing items. Then, on Saturday, the Richstone girls cleared out for the day while the ASP Home Staging teams all showed up with many of their own donations and labor. We spent the entire day transforming the house into a work of art. The Richstone Management came later in the afternoon and were overwhelmed at how much we had done and how beauitful the place looked. It was fabulous !
A newspaper reporter came and took photos and wrote up a local story. The girls started showing up and they too were overwhelmed at how much we had done and how beautiful their new home looked. Some cried and said they never lived in such a beautiful home. It was truely a very heartwarming event. We raised over $16,000 in donations of furniture, accessories and labor for this event. Congratulations to the entire West Los Angeles Chapter, the companies who donated and the vendors who put in such hard work. It was an truely a beautiful event !
