SHORT STORY

We focus on partnering with San Diego charities to help raise money and awareness for children in need by establishing relationships with donors and artists. It is our vision and passion to bring art, culture, and humanities together for the greater good of the community. When our daughter was born she suffered a pneumothorax and spent time in a NICU. The experience motivated us to focus our fundraising and awareness efforts on children in need. We feel every child deserves a fair start in life and raising money and awareness for charities focused on children in need is important. We have established charity partnerships by the help of the 501st Legion. This all-volunteer organization creates movie-quality Star Wars…

About Tony Washington – At the age of 18 after completing high school he joined the summer program at Cal Arts… but the institution couldn’t hold Tony for long; he already had a vision for his life’s work.
