Sidewalk Cafe Hosts Fundraiser on Friday for Venice Resident Nicole Amaral
A fundraiser will be held Friday at The Sidewalk Cafe on behalf of Venice resident Nicole Amaral who has been diagnosed with a rare tumor.
An online fundraiser also has been started at GoFundMe by Venice resident Masao Miyashiro to help Amaral who learned after a series of medical tests that she has a rare tumor behind her eye that has been growing into her cheek.
The Sidewalk Cafe fundraiser will run Friday (March 13) from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. with raffles for bikes, skateboards and a two-night stay in the Dogtown Suite at Hotel Erwin.
Venice surfboard shaper Guy Okazaki also has donated a rare numbered 6′-2″ pintail step-up board made of sugarcane that will be up for raffle, according to a Facebook posting.
There also will be drink specials with all proceeds going to the fundraiser.
Local bands have been scheduled to perform at the fundraiser with the lineup including Fly N Lion, Rated X and Meet Me at the Pub.
The Sidewalk Cafe is located at 1401 Ocean Front Walk on the Venice Beach boardwalk.
