The Irish 66'ers, a group of 100 Irish motorcyclist, ride their Harley Davidson's down the Santa Monica Pier on Wednesday, October 06, 2010.  The ride started in Chicago nine days ago. The Irish motorcyclists traveled 2,448 miles along the historic Route 66 to raise money for the Temple Street Children's University Hospital. Since the first ever Route 66 Challenge in aid of Temple Street took place in 2002, the challenge has raised an incredible 1.5 million euro in much needed funds for the Hospital.

Focusing on the human element, sixteen youth from PAL and Boys and Girls Club participated in summer workshops and met with local vendors, gardners, farmers and a chef to learn about how food is planted, harvested, produced and consumed as part of the Farmer’s Market movement. They were led by Fabian Lewkowicz, a professional photo journalist and supervised by City staff members Eula Fritz and PAL officers. Over a period of eight weeks, the kids were trained to document their experiences through the lens of a camera, using a photojournalistic style. At the event  the youth  exhibited their work and shared their narratives with the community at large. The exhibit was curated by Lewkowicz. The program included a cooking demonstration by Locanda Del Lago Executive Chef Roberto Maggioni  and a planting workshop by Master Gardener Susan McCorry, and a gallery walk followed by a video presentation and a youth panel serving as a spring board for breakout sessions based on the summer workshops.
 
Photo students who participated in the summer photo workshop was  Chloe Hassenfratz, Nayla Torres,  Yoly Islas,  Cesar Rodriguez,  Jasmine Cortez, Lilly Reynaldo,  Griffin  Walker,  Arturo Mungia. Gabriela Ruiz, Alberto Ruiz, Tea Irving, Eyrn Mitchell, Shaena Barnes, Maxwell Stevens, Maya McComsey, Jourdan Harris, Blayne Sutton-Wills, Adam Lemus, Lendsey Comstock, Sean Shaw, Alondra Morales, Salma Morales
