LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – October 11, 2016 – Fifty-seven works of art – including some rarely seen pieces from several of Los Angeles’ leading artists – will be auctioned on October 13th at an Art & Cocktail Reception to support Haven Hills, one of the oldest and largest domestic violence organizations in the city.

Other established and talented emerging artists also are donating to the cause, including Joanna Beray, Frank Buddenbrock, Paul Evans, Bonnie Garvin, Sam Lee, Oscar Magallanes, Mark Matsuno, Janet Papkin, Sarah Stone, Anthony Tamayo and Julie Viens. Several collectors are gifting artwork from their private collections as well.
“We are so pleased that such a diverse array of artists from across the city have come together to support our cause,” says Iliana Travera, executive director of Haven Hills. “Domestic violence cuts across all ages, ethnicities, socio-economic classes, genders and religions. It is something that impacts all of us.”
The Haven Hills Art & Cocktail Reception will be held on Thursday, October 13, 2016, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, California. Starting bids range from $100 to $500, with a few larger pieces starting at $1,000. Proceeds from the art auction will go to support Haven Hills and the critical services it provides.
Since 1977, Haven Hills has provided shelter, crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy, and activities supporting increased economic opportunity to victims of domestic violence. Each year, the organization helps more than 3,500 women and men find strength within themselves to break the cycle of abuse and build new, productive and positive lives for themselves and their children.
Haven Hills is staffed by trained counselors and volunteers 24/7 and operates a 24-Hour Crisis Line (818.887.6589). It offers a 30-Day Crisis Shelter and Haven Two, an 18-month transitional housing shelter in addition to workshops and training, a children’s program, support groups and counseling, and a CALWorks GAIN Program to help survivors move toward self-sufficiency and employment.
