Abbot Kinney Festival 2013

The presentations of the Abbot Kinney Festival ‘Spirit of Venice’ awards will take place from 2-3pm on the Andalusia stage!

Abbot Kinney Festival Spirit of Venice Awards, 2013:

Oscar Duncan – This posthumous tribute will be awarded for musician and youth minister Duncan’s selfless service to the children of Venice at the Boys & Girls Club and to Duncan’s betterment of Venice as a community in general. Oscar, known as “Choir Boy” was shot and killed while walking his girlfriend home on Santa Clara in June of 2012.

Michael “Rocky” Stenger – Stenger is a consumate volunteer, donating his time and resources to many groups in Venice without calling attention to his actions. “Rocky” has been a member of the VNC Neighborhood Committee for years, representing the area East of Lincoln. He also volunteers at both the Mark Twain and Walgrove gardens and elsewhere in Venice.

Carol Tantau – Carol, a Venetian since 1971, opened Abbot Kinney’s Just Tantau in 1982,but her community service goes back for years. Carol has been the head of the West Washington (which she helped get renamed to Abbot Kinney) Merchant’s Association and the President of the Venice Chamber Of Commerce. Tantu has been on the Community Police Advisory Board and also heads the advocacy program at Sojourn Services for Battered Women and their children in Santa Monica. In a perfect world, Just Tantau would be on Abbot Kinney forever.

The Venice Sign Team – This group award will be presented to the organizing team that got the historic Venice sign replaced at Windward and Pacific. The award recognizes the grass roots effort and community cooperation which was vital to re-creating the Venice Sign. When we work together as a community, wonderful things happen!
