The weather did not put a damper on this luxurious event held in Hollywood. Supporters all gathered at the ultra-swanky Lexington Social House to support a great cause, the ‘Women Like Us Foundation’. The ‘Women Like Us Foundation’ is a group of strong individuals that strives to give back to the younger generation in order to build a strong foundation for our future. Many children of today’s society no longer have an authoritative figure to look up to and in a way, get a sense of ‘life’ led by example. Instead many are misled which has a negative effect on the generations to come. Based upon the goal to encourage, empower, and engage, the ‘Women Like Us Foundation’ is a non-profit organization that looks to change and influence young women both locally and globally.
Hosted by Catt Sadler the ‘Women Like Us Foundation’ event kicked it up a notch as Hollywood’s elite gathered and discussed what it means to give back. “It goes pretty deep, this is definitely a cause very near and dear to my heart,’ said Sadler, ‘this is the one organization I wanna get out and make noise about! Give back and lift girls up!” Being a mother of two boys, Catt Sadler is the president of the Hollywood chapter of the ‘Women Like Us Foundation’ and loves to spread the word and be that influential voice to the younger generation that may not have that special role model. “[Women Like Us Foundation] means empowerment, love and happiness,’ said Xochitl Medina is Designer of XOCHI LOS ANGELES and co-founder with Catt Sadler of Women Like Us Hollywood, ‘it means giving back!” In hopes of enlisting new mentors the ‘Women Like Us Foundation’ would like to spread the word, and ‘think of yourself, where you were and what you would’ve done to be where you are now,’ says Xochi.
