Music LA: Instrument Donation To Inner City Kids

Posted: Updated:

This week in Gina's People we recognize a FOX 11 viewer who is making a difference by bringing music to inner city children. Norka Regalado started the Rudy Regalado Foundation in memory of her father Rudy. Rudy was a local musician who did a lot for his community. Now, Norka is the one paying it forward. Her foundation makes donations of musical instruments to programs like 'Music LA'. Thousands of instruments have been donated to different music programs across Southern California. The programs are held after school and they are free to the kids. When Norka shows up to check on the kids progress, she says, “It's such an honor and a privilege to see them so happy.”

If you would like to find out more about the Rudy Regalado Foundation or you would like to make a donation, this is their website: http://rudysfoundation.org

If you know of someone we should recognize, email Gina Silva with the details. She does this Gina's People segments every week.

    Deep beneath the hustle and bustle of Tribeca lies a modern-day oasis brimming with old world charm: Aire Ancient Baths, my new favorite city escape. The breathtaking spa is illuminated by hundreds of candles and smells of invigorating eucalyptus. For around $80 you can bathe in the tranquil blue pools for 90 minutes and find the temperature that's right for you.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    Baby Scarlette Tipton was born five months ago with an abnormally large, left arm. It measures approximately three times the size of her right arm. Doctors say this is an extremely rare condition. Doctors have given Scarlette's parents different diagnosis, the latest is Undifferentiated Sarcoma, a very rare childhood cancer.
