NAMI Walk Success is All About You

1e915da8-42b3-40a0-aa9f-6b750eb92b9dTo the Team Captains, Walkers, Supporters, Donors and all those who helped make the NAMI Los Angeles County 2016 Walk on Saturday, October 1, 2016, such a wonderful day: THANK YOU!

6ac2a2d7-b0dc-4598-a32e-0a4f5d4bca14NAMI filled Grand Park in Los Angeles with families, friends, mental health professionals and loved ones to fight the stigma while enjoying a walk by treasures of Los Angeles and talking with NAMI friends from across Los Angeles County.

2eb2c763-e91f-4b5c-abcd-d308e83e94b3We need you to continue to walk and talk!

77cbf229-a87c-4c09-b42f-cf95e9fb65aeWe haven’t quite reached our goal. NAMI Walks Los Angeles County is our signature fundraiser for NAMI affiliates throughout the County. The funds raised through this event are critical to our ability to provide classes and support groups at no cost, and to advocate at a county-wide level to improve the lives of those affected by mental illness.

1d426b67-2fec-41d7-ae08-83c9207afc23Keep the walk going by asking for support and help us get to $450,000 countywide!

Our fundraising site is open for donations until December 1st!

Diana’s Mexican Food Products is a family owned and operated enterprise that started from humble beginnings and continues to enjoy success that has carried its founders into the 21st century. Samuel F. Magaña came to America at the age of sixteen. He was the first employee hired by another large Mexican food company in Los Angeles, where he was eventually promoted to general plant manager, while concurrently attending night school to enhance his education. Today, the company’s client base reaches across the Pacific into Japan, where the popularity of authentic Mexican cuisine has skyrocketed. The family maintains a strong sense of civic duty in each community it does business in, and has been honored for its achievements, cultural support, and community-oriented activities.

NAMIWalks is an annual event involving tens of thousands of concerned citizens in more than 84 communities across the nation. Participants by region walk together to raise money and awareness 20about the country’s need for a world-class treatment and recovery system for people with mental illness. Funds raised at NAMIWalks provide substantial support to the local NAMI affiliates that participate in the walk. Interested persons can donate to support a walk team, can walk with a team, can become a team leader and form their own team to support their local NAMI affiliate, can attend the walk to support and cheer the walking participants, or can do any combination of these things and more.

Every journey begins with that first step.

Here Comes NAMIWalks 2016

Kudos to those who attended the Los Angeles County NAMIWalks 2016 Lights, Camera, Action on Mental Health! Kick-Off Brunch this past Tuesday at the California Endowment. Please follow NAMIWalks on facebook and twitter so you will get notifications, and view the photographs that have been shared so far. To share yours, please email Shelley Hoffman.

If you were not able to attend, you can still be a Team Captain! CLICK HERE. It’s time to sign up and build your teams–NAMIWalks Los Angeles needs each and every one of you! If every team has 10 participants (whether they are virtual participants or actual ones is fine) and each raised or donated at least $100, then each team would raise at least $1,000! That means more NAMI programs available throughout the county!

The Walk website is super user-friendly. Once you log in, you will see a black horizontal bar at the top where you can access your dashboard, helpful resources, how-to’s and more! Click on the links below for helpful tools and materials.

Sunset Idea House Featured in November Issue of Sunset Magazine

NAMI South Bay thanks Sunset Magazine for its generous donation and the opportunity to participate in an exciting community project. NAMI South Bay also thanks its volunteers for manning the Sunset Magazine Idea House in September.

The Sunset Magazine Idea House, which NAMI South Bay members and volunteers helped show to interested members of the public in September is now featured in the November issue of Sunset Magazine. The article begins on page 41 and continues through to page 54. The house, in Manhattan Beach, CA, featured sleek metal railings, shining glass, and not a seastar or anchor in sight.

Was it a beach house? Oh, yes. For this year’s Idea House in Manhattan Beach, Sunset Magazine built a clean-lined, modern home and asked Los Angeles interior designers David John Dick and Krista Schrock of DISC Interiors to reinvent beach style within its walls. The result riffs on the tonal colors of the coast—and the energetic art scene in L.A.—to inspire updates in your home, no matter how far you are from the sand.

Sunset Magazine acknowledges NAMI South Bay’s help on the project on page 54 of the article. The Rotary Club of Manhattan Beach also participated.
