Stuart House is an internationally recognised, model program created by the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center to serve the special needs of sexually abused youngsters. In a child-friendly setting, Stuart House brings together a multiagency team (police, prosecutors, and other child protection personnel) to expedite investigations and child protection actions. Stuart House also provides 24-hour emergency medical care, state-of-the-art forensic services, comprehensive therapy, advocacy and other support services (free to young victims and their families).
There’s now an auction to benefit the program. Lots include photos of Axl Rose and Slash; a Willie Nelson meet-and-greet package; a shopping spree with John Varvatos; and a James Fortune photo of Elton with Barry White.
Another auction of interest at Charitybuzz.com–also ending the 28th of June–benefits Women in Film. It includes a pair of orchestra seats for Elton’s Million Dollar Piano show in Las Vegas, and was donated by AEG Presents.
