Paint 'n Sip

Weds. February 14, 2018 - Another successful "Paint & Sip". Many were asking "When is the next one?" Why not once a month? It is Phyllis’ mission to empower through art. Thank you Phyllis for bringing fulfilling smiles to the hearts of Veterans.



It was a love fest! Everyone coming together to be recognized and honored for their service to this beautiful country. The Miracles pumped so much love and sing alongs into the auditorium at Wadsworth Theater and it was beautiful to witness the levity and joy.

Super Bowl Weekend Welcome Center 2016

The community got a call from Phyllis Barnes at the WLA VA.  They were expecting a big crowd at the Welcome Center for Super bowl Weekend…could we throw two parties, one on Saturday and one on Sunday?  Yes !  We could and we did!

Jersey Mike’s discounted healthy subs on Saturday and Maria’s Italian Kitchen, one of the first businesses to open in North Brentwood Village, donated an incredible hot meal on Super bowl Sunday…just look at the amazing party the staff and the community put together…in less than one week…
