We are proud to report that donations have been tallied and our first Beauty for Real™ event was a success!
Good Earth Compounding Pharmacy
On Saturday February 16, Dr. Tanya Kormeili and Great Earth Compounding Pharmacy of West Hollywood hosted Beauty for Real™ a unique fundraiser that aimed to have people show their beauty from the inside out. Attendees could obtain a number of cosmetic services – at a one-time discount, with proceeds going to Real Medicine – from Dr. Kormeili, a popular LA dermatologist (who has been seen on The Doctors and in media worldwide).
Beauty for Real™ is part of our efforts to make philanthropy part of people’s everyday lives. It’s the newest in a series of events we’re doing (Run for Real™, Walk for Real™, Food for Real™ — and a new one we’re about to announce!)
Los Angeles, CA – The Los Angeles-based international nonprofit Real Medicine Foundation participated in World Humanitarian Day this Sunday, August 19th. World Humanitarian Day is an international day promoted by the United Nations to recognize those who have lost their lives – and those who continue to spend their lives – in the course of humanitarian work around the world.
The day is described as a “global celebration of people helping people.”
Real Medicine has operated on exactly this philosophy since the day it was founded in 2005, shortly following and inspired by the events of the Asian tsunami. CEO and Founder Dr. Martina Fuchs created a nonprofit organization of “friends helping friends” to network, collaborate, and strategize together to address crucial health needs in times of crisis as well as create sustainable, locally-supported solutions to longstanding healthcare issues. The concept has resulted in tremendous growth and success for Real Medicine.
Long Beach, CA | May 15, 2012 — Tickets are selling quickly for the tenth installment of the famed “DioNicEss” food & drink pairing series, which is coming to Long Beach’s celebrated Beachwood BBQ & Brewing on June 10. To immortalize this milestone, the theme of this dinner has been dubbed “DioNicEss X: Coming of Age,” not only as a reflective look at the progression of the previous nine events, but also a play on the fact that every course, as well as each beer paired with it, will have undergone some sort of careful aging.
