Introducing HomeFront Long Beach
Renaissance man John Bollinger and I spoke last night at the semimonthly RotorAct Long Beach Happy Hour Meeting. It was quite a privilege to spend time with young movers and shakers who never stop making their city a better place. We shared our plans to establish a facility in Long Beach where we’ll run a variety of programs with nonprofit partners including Rock to Recovery and The Strindberg Laboratory. I met John when we both participated in a conference at Loyola Marymount University for veterans who own or plan to own their own businesses. John is an architect, general contractor and construction engineering professor who helped launch the Long Beach World Trade Center and Port of Long Beach. We’ll be lining up partners and funding in the coming months in a variety of ways including our Night of Hope and Dreams, a tribute to Bruce Springsteen at the Brass Lamp Bar in Long Beach.
