We would greatly appreciate your using this photo to help us publicize this important gift of $32,500 made by the late Max Straus as part of a large philanthropic donation to Los Angeles Charities. The boys and girls of Eastside Los Angeles have needed for a very long time, the facilities of a gymnasium and auditorium.
