Manhattan Beach artist Marlene Greenberg says her “heart breaks knowing animals suffer under any circumstance.”
So Greenberg decided to organize a fundraiser for the animals left behind in the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian's destruction.
Proceeds from the event, which takes place Saturday, Nov. 2, from 5 to 8 p.m., at Two Guns Espresso, located at 350 N. Sepulveda Blvd. in Manhattan Beach, benefits the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), who have been at the scene saving animals since the hurricane hit earlier this year, according to Greenberg.
“The only question I had after seeing all the devastation was how can I help?” Greenberg said. “I reached out to IFAW in Washington, told them I was an artist and would do a benefit to raise money to help save animals left behind from the devastation.”
Greenberg's previous art benefit raised $55,000 for Habitat for Humanity Puerto Rico.
“I believe we all can do something,” Greenberg said.
