  • CHRISTMAS ART SALE

    Our Christmas Art Sale Was A Full Success!

    Lots of people came by, everyone had a great time and many went home with a new piece of art. Here some of the happy owners of a new, original piece of art…

    Thanks to the efforts of everyone involved, artists, customers and AMD board members, and especially Lorna Donohoe and Nader Naderi, the owners of Wilde Wine Bar who invited us to have our art sale at their restaurant, we were able to raise $1,800 in just a few hours. This money will greatly help us help others, especially during the winter time, when even in L.A. the temperatures can go down to just above freezing at night.

    It was a beautiful event all the way round, and we are looking forward to the next one!
