Kathy Smiley hosted her “Big Brothers, Big Sisters ‘BIG STUFF’ Holiday Event” at the Westlake Village Rodeo Realty office, and from the looks of it the event was a great success! Kathy advertised the charity by sending out over 350 postcards to her farm and sphere; in addition she placed a notice on the front page of the Acorn real estate section, as well as posted fliers on Facebook and emailing e-cards. However, Kathy wanted a personal touch and went door-to-door within the 3-building office complex and personally met the business people in the area, and luckily many of them brought donations. The two-day event started Friday, Dec 11 and ended Saturday Dec 12 at 3:00 PM. The truck was positioned in the Rodeo Realty parking lot at 100 N. Westlake Blvd. with signs and flags displayed on both Westlake Blvd and Thousand Oaks Blvd. Kathy estimated the value of the donation portion to “Big Brothers Big Sisters” to be around $750 – not bad for the first annual Westlake Village Rodeo Realty BBBS event. Congrats Kathy on a great turnout!
