Each successful initial bidder receives an invitation to have dinner at PASTINA in Westwood California with Michelle Phillips and her friends at her favorite restaurant in September 2021. Winning bidders can each bring one guest. Dinner will be hosted and attended by the members of ViciNFT. 

Regarding the auction, Michelle Phillips said: "I am delighted to be able to help so many children through these auctions." 

Bill Gladstone, Partner in ViciNFT Corporation, said: "Michelle represents the essence of the California musical and cultural transformation of the 1960s, which has impacted the world for more than 50 years." He added, "These NFTs will increase in value as icons of this era."

While working as a model in San Francisco, Michelle met and married John Phillips in 1962 and went on to co-found the vocal group The Mamas and The Papas in 1965. The band rose to fame with their popular singles "California Dreamin'" and "Creeque Alley", both of which she co-wrote. Her original "California Girl" memorabilia is digitized in a digital collectible, including her original signature and a fabulous hand-drawn portrait of The Mamas and The Papas, originally created by Lou Adler in 1965. The NFT also includes a video of the making of the drawing and signature, along with a dedicated message to the winning bidder.   

The Painted Turtle began as a dream in 1999 when Paul Newman, Page and Lou Adler and a group of dedicated individuals, co-founded The Painted Turtle, a place where kids with medical conditions can just be kids. Through the ongoing commitment of these individuals, the dream of The Painted Turtle became a reality. Michelle Phillips' beauty and attitude was and is the image of the original 'California Girl', and the harmony she has brought to the world through her involvement in music is matched only by the kindness she has shown for those in need. Fortunately, The Painted Turtle is one of the recipients of that kindness. 

Adler signed The Mamas & The Papas to Dunhill, producing six top-five hits for the group, including "California Dreamin'" and "Monday, Monday."
