True Pablove 2014 - A Valentine's Day Family Celebration Raising Money to Fight Childhood Cancer

We know a place where yummy treats (gelato! Stumptown coffee! PINKS!) fill your stomachs, family-ready indie pop fills the air, and your kids emerge delighted and exhausted from a day of crafting handmade keepsakes.

Sounds too good to be true? It’s called True Pablove…and best of all, attending with your family helps fight childhood cancer.

True Pablove is The Pablove Foundation’s signature family event in Los Angeles to raise money to support the fight against childhood cancer, held every year around Valentine’s Day.

Arts + crafts to delight your little ones include Handmade wire hearts, screen-printed tees, keepsakes with Cut Arts, hand-painted custom Converse shoes, and creating Valentines to brighten the day of inpatient children at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles!

Weelicious (our FAVE!) will be making take-home “cocoa in a cup” and Modern Bite will be running the cookie decorating (usually that “craft” doesn’t make it home with the kids before it is devoured, haha!). Pinks hot dogs, Stumptown Coffee, POM juice, and Pazzo Gelato will make tummies happy. 

For the grownups, there are over 100 items in the legendary silent auction, like Tory Burch totes, Burke Williams packages, ceramics by Kelly Lamb, Heather Taylor linens, and a custom portrait by Katherine Chiu. Travel packages include a New Orleans Saints getaway and trips to Aspen and Mammoth. The auction also is a collector’s dream, including artwork and photography by Geoff McFetridge, Shepard Fairey, Chapman Baehler, Andrew Holder, Lauren Greenfield, and more.

All proceeds support The Pablove Foundation’s mission to fund pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, educate and empower cancer families, and improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through hospital play, music, and arts programs. Now in it’s fourth year, True Pablove has raised over $200,000 to fight childhood cancer with love!
