Today, Nov. 19, on world Pancreatic Cancer Day, the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research will be partnering with some of Los Angeles’ small businesses with an outdoor pop-up boutique at 375 Homewood Rd. from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. to raise mon
ey for pancreatic cancer research. While supporting local vendors during the coronavirus pandemic, the Hirshberg Foundation’s pop-up boutique will be providing the opportunity to elevate awareness about the disease with the highest mortality rate of all cancers. Proceeds from the outdoor boutique will benefit the Hirshberg Foundation and its efforts in funding groundbreaking, scientific research for early detection methods, treatments and a cure.
This year, the loss of notables such as game show host Alex Trebek, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Congressman and Civil Rights icon John Lewis has shined a spotlight on pancreatic cancer.
Participating vendors at the outdoor pop-up include FlowerTruckLA, which will be offering farm-to-vase flowers featuring an exclusive flower arrangement in honor of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; Ace Yoga, which will be selling soothing, scented candles from its newly launched “I AM Candle” collection featuring inspirational messages; and A2A Designs, which was co-founded during COVID-19 by two pre-teen girls (ages 11 and 12) who wanted to give back to the community by creating fun, fashionable and practical products. Additional vendors include Kerri Wilder Jewelry and 27 Miles Malibu.
In addition, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. join Hirshberg Foundation founder Agi Hirshberg and mixologist Gordon Bellaver, co-founder of Penny Pound Ice, for “Cocktails and Mocktails Hour,” a virtual happy hour.
