 Music by award winning songwriter Gregory Brock entertained the party along with a DJ.  A fashion show followed. 

The event was a fundraiser for Republican Armineh Chelebian, running for the 12 district of City Council. This is the western San Fernando Valley.  A former accountant, Armineh served on the board of the Winnetka and Reseda Neighborhood Councils and then  joined the 2011 City Council race on September 14, 2009 after being a resident of the district for over 18 years and recognizing a urgent need for change.  She worries that the current policies are ineffective and fears bankruptcy.  She believes that education is critical.  “The status quo has got to go.”
