The Genesis Inspiration Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to supporting education through the arts, received a $500,000 charitable donation from The Genesis Invitational, which is being held at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Feb. 17-20.
“The Genesis Inspiration Foundation believes in the transformational power of the arts to inspire and empower children,” said Peter Lanzavecchia, director, Genesis Inspiration Foundation board of directors and president and owner of Genesis of Cherry Hill in Marlton, N.J. “We are thrilled to continue to utilize proceeds from The Genesis Invitational to support the arts in Los Angeles and nationwide. Arts are a critical part of the human experience, and we look forward to engaging and inspiring more children with the help of these funds.”
