Event Digest: Jackalope Summer Nights

Brighter Future Charity had another amazing time joining Jacklope for one of their incredible artist fairs this past weekend. Our families enjoyed sharing in the creative new art that the fair had to offer, and our students were able to host two days of rock painting workshops to support our group. We can’t wait for our next Jacklope fair!

Event Digest: OC Fair

Brighter Future Charity spent three amazing days at the Orange County Fair in the Anaheim/Home Building with our amazing team of artist and entrepreneurs. We are so grateful to Christine Gunst and the entire OC Fair team for their support! Our students had an incredible time exploring all the fair had to offer, including a wide variety of arts and crafts. Be sure to join us next week for the continuation of our Films on the Beach series with Dockweiler Youth Center!

Event Digest: Summer Film Series

Brighter Future Charity can’t thank our good friend Peggy enough for her incredible film series at the beach. Our students had such a blast playing in the sand, trying to win a game of crab soccer, and watching one of our favorite films The Batman LEGO Movie. We also want to thank BJs for their generous donation of chicken fingers and french fries to our summer camp that runs just before the film series. Be sure to join us every Friday for more fun at the beach!

Event Digest: Santa Monica Farmers Market

Brighter Future Charity thanks our good friend Jodi for another wonderful day down at the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market.  Our group had a blast showcasing some of the new workshops our artists brought for the fair.  Specifically, we were ever impressed with one of our new students and her ability to create beautiful illustrations. Be sure to join us on the 21st of July when we will be back at the market for more creative fun.    

Event Digest: Summer Camp @ Dockweiler Youth Center

Brighter Future Charity would like to recognize the Dockwieler Youth Center for the support and access they have provided to our students to the beautiful beach.  We are ever thankful for the incredible staff and space the Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors has been able to create.  Our students look forward every year to the amazing events hosted by the youth center and request over and over again for more!  Our group loves the beach and all the fun we find there so much, that we will be back every Friday for more fun in the sun.

Be sure to check out our next event this coming weekend, and see you soon!

Workshop Digest: Earth Day 2019

Brighter Future Charity at the Earth Day Festival launched our amazing new workshop and summer camp series.  The workshop, in which our group constructed an earth friendly castle, was an important new tool for our group building social skill and problem-solving skills; as well as, a great source of stimulation for mind and a boost to creativity. Participants worked as a team to design and build a castle from recycled boxes.  We were so inspired because our new workshop was such a powerful catalyst for positive socialization and cooperation with others.  Our students and staff alike can’t wait for our next workshop at our next event!

Event Digest:Earth Day Festival

Brighter Future Charity had an amazing time at Dockweiler Youth Center for their annual Earth Day festival! 

Thank you, to our dear friend Peggy for continuing to invite us to be a part of this great event. 

We were blessed with so many opportunities to explore, connect, communicate, exercise, and learn about Earth Day; all while having fun!

It was amazing to see how different ages, abilities, and cultures connected and were so kind and supportive towards each other. Everyone truly benefited from being a part of such a kind community. 

Our students and guest enjoyed playing non-competitive basketball, baseball, and football, and of course cheering for their friends and others. Some of our favorite activities from this year’s Earth Day event were the rock climbing, dancing, and jumping castles, and slides.

All had many artistic opportunities like rock painting, jewelry making, crafts, face painting and more with the Brighter Future Group.

Some of our students were selling their creations and teaching others their craft. 

Everyone had fun learning, sharing, connecting, and growing their skills.
