Benefit Fundraiser for Zelinda Mora on Saturday!

March 28th, 2014- by Bret - · No Comments

From MB Boissonnault:

On Saturday from 9am on, we will be having a fundraiser / yard sale to benefit the long-term care of 91-yr old Venetian Zelinda Mora.

Zelinda Mora

Zelinda was a dancer at Paramount studios in the 30′s + 40′s, dancing in movies with the biggest stars of the time such as Marlon Brando and Rita Hayworth. It was during this period that she moved to Cabrillo Ave., when Venice Blvd. was a dirt road and there were no streetlights. Zelinda was one of the 1st of 2 ladies to work out at Muscle Beach when only a few men were there (and she did it in a bikini and got fined 2X for it!!!)

Zelinda Mora is a true Venice classic and we’ve sadly had to move her into a home and have to sell her belongings. We’ve looked after her as neighbors for 15 years, since she has zero family members left and has been disabled for over 40 years.

We’ll be at Santa Clara Ct. and 6th Ave. from 9 a.m. on, Saturday March 29th , selling all sorts of furniture, antiques, rare books, china & glasswares, hundreds of un-opened CD’s (from the KCRW music club) and so much more. Please come by!

Officials Consider Safety Measures on Ocean Front Walk

March 26th, 2014- by Bret - · 1 Comment

From ABC7.com:

The Los Angeles City Council Transportation Committee is looking for ways to make the Venice boardwalk safer for everyone.

It’s a beach, park, commercial district and tourist attraction with a spirit of its very own. But there have been several incidents that have brought the Venice boardwalk the wrong kind of attention.

An Italian newlywed was killed by a driver who went around a barrier and plowed through the pedestrian area last summer.

There was also the brutal beating of a homeless man that was caught on camera, and the case of a man allegedly threatening people with a chainsaw.

And earlier this month, a crowd refused to disperse, leading to a police confrontation. [Read more →]
