)-- Kami Cotler, who played the adorable Elizabeth on the Emmy Award winning series “The Waltons” (one of the most loved shows on TV), will attend a special charity event at Mulberry Cottage in Torrance, CA to raise money to benefit the kids of Environmental Charter Middle School. With many of the school’s programs left unfunded due to recent school budget cuts, this event will bring necessary funds to allow ECMS to continue to offer their environmental and arts-integrated curriculum, including field trips and project-based learning that connect academics to real world tasks.
Kami Cotler, who also serves as Principal for Environmental Charter Middle School (ECMS) currently located in Inglewood, CA, is partnering with Mulberry Cottage as the award winning gift shop holds its 20th Anniversary Celebration and fundraiser for ECMS. The event consists of a raffle, storewide sale, and opportunity to visit with Kami and, for a donation, have your picture taken with Kami or get a personalized autographed picture. Each raffle ticket offers a chance to win one of several wonderful prizes and gift certificates, the proceeds of which will be donated to ECMS. There will also be food sampling and refreshments.
Kami Cotler and Mulberry Cottage hope that with the community’s involvement, this event will greatly help ECMS’s students to further develop the academic skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to succeed in a college preparatory high school and to be effective stewards of their community.
This 20th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser Event will take place at Mulberry Cottage located at 22247 Palos Verdes Blvd., Torrance, CA 90503 on Saturday, June 2nd, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Kami Cotler will be signing autographs from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm. Raffle tickets can be purchased at Mulberry Cottage beginning April 20th, until Saturday, June 2nd at 2:00 pm. The raffle winners will be drawn at 2:00 pm.
