Venice-based clothing brand Topo Ranch will host an Art Angels Benefit from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, December 14th, to raise money for Venice Arts, a nonprofit organization that provides art education in photography and digital media to at-risk youths.

The event will take place at the clothing brand’s holiday store, The Topo Ranch General Store, 1219 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice.

“Venice Arts plays an important role in keeping the Venice culture thriving,” said Alex Kump of Topo Ranch. “We derived a lot of inspiration from the Venice culture while conceiving our brand, so it’s nice to have an opportunity to give something back to the community.”

The Arts Angels Benefit will feature a raffle drawing for gift-worthy prizes as well as artwork from local Venice artists, live music, appetizers and regional brews.

All proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Venice Arts’ Business Art Circle, which provides funding for the annual cost of supplies and equipment for art mentoring workshops.

Raffle tickets can be purchased at the store or online at or www.ven
