LOS ANGELES, CA – (May 30, 2014) - Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer and multi-Grammy Award winner Smokey Robinson was honored by the Thalians last Saturday April 26th at The House of Blues, West Hollywood. The Thalians is one of Hollywood’s oldest non-profit organizations focused on the treatment of mental health. The event raised $1 million for UCLA’s Operation Mend.

Opportunity Builders was invaluable in the success of the event according to Bob Lorsch, “The idea to honor Smokey happened over a corn beef sandwich at Greenblatt’s in West Hollywood, where I asked long time friend Kerry Gordy to help identify a music honoree for the upcoming Thalians event”.

“We are thrilled to participate in the honoring of our friend Smokey with the Thalians,” says Seanne Murray, Esq., CEO and co-founder of Opportunity Builders. “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.”

Bob Lorsch along with his wife, Kira, are the powerhouse philanthropists who chaired the event. According to Kira, “Opportunity Builders made it possible for the Thalians to meet our 2014 Mr. Wonderful. This was one of our most successful fundraising events to date and there’s no way we could have done it without the expertise and contacts of Seanne and Kerry”, says Kira.

“I’ve always been a strong proponent of helping the community,” says Smokey Robinson. “I am so proud of the mission Seanne and Kerry have taken on through Opportunity Builders to use the power of entertainment to help those who really need our help.”
