Rally for Haitian Earthquake Victims in Hollywood Sunday at 1:30 p.m.

January 14, 2010

My friends,
This is probably one of the most important emails I have written since I was elected Mayor of Hollywood. I do not need to tell you that Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, was rocked by a horrific earthquake. The Red Cross estimates at least 50,000 innocent people have been killed. As you have surely seen on television, the island nation has been virtually destroyed.
I, along with community leaders and city staff, have organized a rally in the downtown Hollywood ArtsPark (a/k/a Hollywood Young Circle) on Sunday, January 17, 2010 at 1:30 p.m.

The purpose of this rally is to show that people in the tri-county area are united in their effort to assist the victims of this tragedy, and that the need to raise funds is greater than ever.
This is the only rally currently scheduled to occur in South Florida, and the victims of this earthquake need our help, now. This is South Florida's opportunity to show that we stand united with the victims and their families. Thank you for your time. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday.

Peter Bober
City of Hollywood

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
