Kentwood Elementary School and Venice Emerson Adult School are the recipients of $1,750 in donations collected by the LAX Coastal Area Chamber of Commerce at its annual holiday mixer last month.

The chamber’s holiday mixer was hosted by Playa Vista through the efforts of Sibyl Buchanan and held in conjunction with the Venice Chamber of Commerce at the Playa Vista CenterPointe Club.

The chamber had requested a $10 donation at the door from all attendees and at the conclusion of the evening, all proceeds collected were split between two randomly chosen chamber area schools.

Representatives from all chamber schools were encouraged to attend the festivities in order to be eligible for the drawing at the end of the night.

Kentwood Elementary and Venice Emerson Adult School principals were presented with an $875 check at the chamber’s education committee meeting this month to use for supplies or activities of their choosing.
