It’s not often that a charity event so inspires an elected official that he decides to proclaim an entire day in its honor. But that’s exactly what happened on Aug. 23. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced live during the “Quarantunes x HOLA” virtual fundraising concert that he was designating Aug. 25 as “HOLA Day” in Los Angeles.

HOLA, which stands for “Heart of Los Angeles,” is a nonprofit that has for three decades provided free academic support, art classes, athletic training, college readiness, wellness counseling and more to young people in the disadvantaged Rampart area of Los Angeles. It’s a cause dear to the heart of noted developer Mauricio Oberfeld, a founding partner of the real estate firm Dugally Oberfeld, Inc., and a long-time HOLA board member.
