The famous, and longest running sitcom, scripted prime time series, and animated T.V. show of all time, The Simpsons, is led by the brilliant talent of Matt Groening and that beloved voice of Bart Simpson, played by actress Nancy Cartwright.
When Nancy Cartwright is not helping to create one of the most famous, iconic voices in the history of entertainment, she is spreading the celebration of life and love in an even more personal way; with her very own important, powerful charitable organization which helps to educate children to make the right decisions while growing up, in order to be healthy, happy, successful young adults who avoid the pitfalls of society including crime, drugs, and prison. This program called 'Good Choices,' is part of the 'Happy House' foundation, which has proven successful time and time again, throughout schools and homes across the nation, bettering the lives of children, and strengthening families, and as a result; the world at large.
Happy House: The Mission
The mission of Happy House is to help bring about a safer community by "Building Better Families." A "family" in this case can be small or large; it can be a school, church, business, neighborhood or even a country. Nancy states, "Our goal is a healthy world where people can trust one another and not live in fear, where there is mutual respect and a true sense of community. This 'healthy world' already exists in many families and neighborhoods, in many congregations and businesses but, sadly, is very difficult to maintain in this modern world. We are here to support the efforts of those who are doing good deeds. We want to make it easier for everyone to live a life that creates happiness for all." - Nancy Cartwright; Co-Founder Happy House
With that, Nancy Cartwright hosted her very special, once a year only fundraising party for Happy House, this year on May 17th, 2014. The night proved to be a fun celebration for all of us who attended. One of the special events for for this year's party was a live auction. One of the items auctioned was a very rare, limited edition Simpsons Lego set which one lucky guy took home. To make the Lego set even more great and valuable, it was signed by Nancy Cartwright and other members of the cast and crew of The Simpsons.
There was a BBQ, live music, swimming and games for the kids, a putting green, a cigar lounge, more great prizes and raffles, organic food sponsored by Whole Foods, and a live auction for more great gifts. As if that weren't enough, Nancy Cartwright herself hosted the event. So, attendees got to hear the voice of Bart Simpson talk live in person, which for any Simpson's fan, was very cool!
Nancy Cartwright's awesome party also hosted her annual Texas Hold 'Em Tournament, with a growing list of amazing prizes. It is not often that a person gets to see a star in real life. Whole industries are built around people just 'hoping' to get a chance to do that, on 'celebrity tours' and similar. The fact that one can had the chance to not only catch a glimpse of one of TV's biggest stars, but to attend her own VIP party live, and for a great cause, was nothing short of incredible. So, if you live in Los Angeles, what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now to the party of a lifetime for next year, and most importantly, help make a positive difference in a child's life.
