Venice Family Clinic Surf and Skate auction donation

The skateboard deck has an old gas mask and an old Venice hat attached to the surface.

This was my donation to the Venice Surf and Skate auction (Photos of the event at ) which was held a couple of weeks ago at Bergamot Station Art Complex to raise funds to support the Venice Family Clinic  Venice Family Clinic serves 24,400 men, women, children, teens, and seniors annually. Ninety-seven percent are low-income and nearly three-quarters are uninsured. Most live on the Westside of Los Angeles County.

Venice Family Clinic provides more than 106,000 primary care, specialty care, mental health, dental, and health education visits annually. Services include diagnosis, treatment, medications, follow-up care, and laboratory tests. Particular emphasis is placed on the needs of women, children, the homeless, and those with chronic diseases.

The 4th Annual Surf & Skate Silent art auction was a great success! Couldn’t make it? You still have the chance to purchase a one-of-a-kind skate deck or surfboard here
