OPPORTUNITY BUILDERS, LLC WORKS WITH SMOKEY ROBINSON
May 2014
Opportunity Builders, LLC works with Smokey Robinson and the Thalians to Raise One Million Dollars for UCLA Operation Mend

LOS ANGELES, CA – 1 May 2014 – Opportunity Builders, LLC, founded by Kerry Gordy and Seanne Murray, Esq., brought Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer and multi-Grammy Award winner Smokey Robinson and the Thalians, a non-profit focused on the treatment of mental health, together to raise $1 million.

Smokey Robinson was honored at the Thalians’ annual gala for a lifetime of entertainment and philanthropy with the “Mr. Wonderful” award at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip, hosted by powerhouse philanthropists and event co-chairs Bob and Kira Lorsch.

“We are thrilled to participate in the honouring of our friend Smokey,” says Seanne Murray, Esq., CEO and co-founder of Opportunity Builders, LLC. “Doing what we can to use our entertainment contact base to help others is our mission and serving our veterans is a priority, particularly in LA where we have the largest population of homeless veterans in the country.”

The award was presented to Mr. Robinson by Rodney Jerkins, songwriter, musician and producer (Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, etc.) and the tribute included performances by Taylor Dayne, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, and Guy Sebastian, to name a few.

Kerry Gordy, of musical legacy, whose personal career in music spans close to three decades says, “I couldn’t think of a better way to honor my ‘uncle Smokey’ than to work with him to serve our wounded veterans”.
