When most people think about Hollywood, the things that come to mind are movies, stars, and make-believe. But on July 9th, people who work, worship, rent, live or volunteer in the Hollywood area came together for a good ole neighborhood 'block party'. OK, maybe not the suburbian type of get together--this one was held at the Hollywood and Highland courtyard. Sponsored by the CIM Group and Cirque du Soleil as well as collaboration with the Hollywood Hills West Neighborhood Council -- it was a great night to get involved in the Hollywood community and have a voice for its future. Wine, soft drinks, hors d'oeuvres and dessert gave us energy to dance to the Latin rhythms of the Luis Cruz Beltran orchestra. Ole! And the young and young at heart enjoyed the play area put together by Cirque du Monde--who with the artists of Cirque du Soleil joined in the celebration as a kickoff to the show they'll present in their new home the Kodak Theatre. It was nice to feel more united in a world that's so often disconnected.
