WHAT: One Love Malibu held a music and food festival raising nearly $1 million for the Malibu Foundation to support programs in regions impacted by the Woolsey Fire, including Agoura Hills, Oak Park, Thousand Oaks, West Hills, Calabasas, Malibu and other areas. One Love Malibu was supported by and held at King Gillette Ranch. 100% of the proceeds went to those most in need: to the uninsured, to those living paycheck to paycheck with no resources, to help with animal refuge and care, to rebuild and regenerate Malibu and to support proper Wildfire Prevention and Land Stewardship initiatives.
With support from Linda Perry & Kerry Brown’s artist empowerment company We Are Hear, the fundraiser featured musical performances, a silent auction made possible by One Love Productions and a live auction by Christie’s, which included a Jony Ive specially designed Apple product, a Tierney Gearon photograph, Mr. Brainwash artwork, items from Bamford Watch Department, a Wes Lang piece, skid steer excavator by JCB, once in a lifetime Gucci, SEALs experience and LA RAMS experiences.
Complimentary food and drinks at the festival were provided by Nick Mathers’ Elephante, Nobu Malibu, Malibu Burger Co., Drx Cupcake and Goldthread, with contributions from Gelson’s Markets. Free alcoholic beverages made with Bulleit, Ketel One, and Ketel One Botanical were also served throughout the day.

It has been launched by members of the community including Miley Cyrus, the Happy Hippie Foundation, Liam Hemsworth, Evelin Weber, Alice Bamford, Ann Eysenring, Joe Flanigan, Rory Kennedy, Trevor Neilson, and others. To date, through the partnership with the Malibu Foundation, the Boys & Girls Club's Emergency Relief Grant Sub Committee has awarded $95,000 in grants ranging from $1,000 - $5,000 to 29 families and is in the process of reviewing an additional 30 applications. They anticipate receiving significantly more requests in the coming weeks. The Malibu Foundation has already been supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Malibu and the United Way of Los Angeles for emergency relief in Malibu and its surrounding area including Agoura Hills, Oak Park, Thousand Oaks, West Hills and Calabasas, who have all been deeply impacted by the Woolsey Fire. Both the Boys & Girls Club of Malibu and the United Way of Los Angeles are local chapters of leading national nonprofit organizations who specialize in community programming. They are actively collecting and vetting requests for immediate financial assistance from low-income individuals and families affected by the fire, and are making sure they get the help they need as quickly as possible. www.themalibufoundation.org
