“Our family founded Beauty Bus Foundation in memory of our daughter Melissa, who lost her battle to a degenerative neuromuscular disease when she was 28. Melissa would have turned 40 on November 10th, and we miss her everyday. Beauty Bus Foundation has been an amazing tribute to her memory, providing nearly 15,000 free beauty services. We hope you will consider giving a gift to Beauty Bus in honor of Melissa’s Milestone Birthday. Your gift will help continue our mission to deliver dignity, hope and respite to chronically and terminally ill men, women and children – and their caregivers. ”

“Looking forward to seeing Lunada Bay residents at Lunada Bay Elementary where I will reveal “Why The Jester Jingles.” Delighted by the invitation from Lunada Bay Cub Scouts Pack 276, led by the indomitable James Lowenstein. For the last month, the boys have been eagerly introducing the community to my late son’s best-selling children’s book “The Jester Has Lost His Jingle.” For every copy they sell, The Jester & Pharley Phund will donate another to hospitalized children over the holidays. Come by and say hello and join the phun Monday evening. Please call 310-544-4733 for more information. This dedicated pack of Cub Scouts is a model group — so honored to be partnering with them to help ill children at City of Hope Medical Center, Torrance Memorial Medical Center and Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach.”
