COAST CITIES — A public Luxury Home Extravaganza and home tour will benefit Baby Izaiah from 1 to 3 p.m. July 23 and July 24 and Aug. 6 and Aug. 7 at 1538 Kearsarge Road, La Jolla, sponsored by The Luxury Homes Group.
The Group will be hosting the community event geared to sell a $15.9-million home with ocean views and interesting history, giving a portion of the proceeds to Passion 4 K.I.D.S. in support of the Oceanside family of Baby Izaiah Wallis.
In October 2010, Oceanside toddler Izaiah Wallis, was struck by a 17-year-old, drunk driver. He is now partially blind and paralyzed from the chest down, breathing through a tracheotomy and a ventilator. He requires round-the-clock care, and the tragedy has required a high financial and emotional toll on the young parents and rest of the family. The 17-year-old intoxicated driver had no insurance.
In addition, there will be two additional fundraisers for Baby Izaiah in July. Arranged by comedian Jason Parmiter, eight comics will be performing at The Comedy Palace in Clairemont Mesa, from 7:30 to 11 p.m. July 27 at The Comedy Palace, 8878 Clairemont Mesa Blvd. All proceeds go to Izaiah. Tickets are $20. For tickets contact email@example.com or call (858) 573-9067.
Izaiah’s Fest, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 30, will feature a rock and rap concert at the Harley Davidson Store, 3201 Hoover Ave., National City. The event will include a car and motorcycle show, raffles and games. Tickets are $5. For more information, call (619) 477-4477.
The Wallis family and other families of children like him get a helping hand from Passion 4 K.I.D.S. In addition to the sale of the estate, a silent auction will be held on site with 100 percent of proceeds going to charity. Local San Diego sponsors and other businesses will also showcase a multitude of items available for purchase and a celebrity dinner is being planned all in support of charity.
The free tour of the La Jolla home itself is a special event. The six-bedroom, 8,232-square-foot home was designed around high-end art and antiques. It boasts wrought iron railings/fixtures from Jayne Mansfield’s estate, antique furniture, 18th-century Renaissance tapestries, oil paintings on elevator walls and wood statutes and stone sculptures throughout. Iron artwork and the wine room door are from Ester Williams’ estate and there’s an antique mantle from George Washington’s Mt. Vernon estate home.
