Intelligentsia Venice Hosts Pablove Foundation Fundraiser

On June 3, beginning at 7 PM, Intelligentsia’s stylish Venice coffeehouse is hosting a fundraiser for The Pablove Foundation, which they’re dubbing  “An Evening to Raise Awareness About Pediatric Cancer.” The Pablove Foundation is named in honor of Pablo Castelaz, the son of Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz who passed away on June 27, 2009, as a result of a rare form of children’s cancer called Wilms’ Tumor. His parents “fight on in his name, with the spirit of love that Pablo embodied and inspired.” The mission of The Pablove Foundation is to fund pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, educate and empower cancer families, and improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through hospital play, music and arts programs.

“All of us at Intelligentsia are honored to be working with The Pablove Foundation and to help in some small way with their deeply meaningful work,” said Intelligentsia Founder/CEO Doug Zell. “It’s hard to imagine where any one of us would begin to offer help to those who are experiencing the dire, life-changing effects of cancer. We’re proud of the great work The Pablove Foundation does: providing comfort and support to the people who matter most, our children.  I’ll say “our children” because a family struggling with cancer can be any family - mine, yours, any family.”

At the fundraiser, the band Eulogies is performing an acoustic show, followed by a DJ set from KCRW’s Tom Schnabel. There will be gift bags for sale, and of course plenty of Intelligentsia coffee. A $10 donation is suggested, and all proceeds directly benefit The Pablove Foundation. If you can’t attend the fundraiser, you can still make a donation HERE. [Feast LA]
