In December, Realtors Lonnie Mintz, Marc Tahler, and Rich Cure held a fundraising event to help Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The “Notice To Perform” band performed to a live audience at the Guitar Merchant in West Hills. Lonnie was on bass guitar, Marc Tahler on drums, Roger Martin on vocals and Rich Cure on guitar.
Lonnie and his band mates played rock favorites by Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Chuck Berry, Nirvana, and many more!
“This year for my birthday I wanted to do something extra special to help give back, as I am a recent cancer survivor, and it is amazing how an awful six letter word can change your perspective on life,” said Woodland Hills Realtor Lonnie Mintz.
Through attendee’s donations, they helped raise more than $1,850. Most importantly, contributions will help bring hope and healing to many families in Southern California and beyond.
In addition, Lonnie has received more donations since the event, including $5,000 from a good friend of his. The total amount raised so far is now $7,000, which has exceeded the $1,000 goal!
“I’ve always wholeheartedly believed that you have to give back to worthy organizations, but now more than ever, ” said Lonnie. “There are too many children diagnosed with cancer and they, along with their families, desperately need our help, support, funds and resources to fight and overcome this awful disease. My bandmates and I decided to help by playing a fundraising rock concert. On behalf of Marc, Rich and Roger, we are proud to support CHLA by helping raise funds for their cause and we want to extend our gratitude and a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support us, donate to CHLA and have a super fun night in celebration of my birthday.”
