The West Clovernook Society and Safe Passage, along with the Palomar Hotel hosted a successful fundraiser at the Palomar Hotel in Los Angeles. The event was to support Safe Passage, a nonprofit organization that helps women escape domestic violence and restore their lives.
West Clovernook Society member Bianca Smith said, “The event was a huge success! It brought women from the community to give back and raise awareness to Safe Passage.”
Excited attendees purchased keys in hopes to unlock a lucite raffle gift box. The lucky winners were able to pick from an array of wrapped luxury items. One giving attendee bought 25 keys.
Another hit was key note speaker, Barbara Niven, (actress and motivational speaker) who gave an inspiring speech. A silent auction also took place for more wonderful gifts. And poignant testimonials by woman who have been transformed by Safe Passage. These women are helped by a team called the “Dream Team” who are experts that include doctors, dentists, life coaches, beauty consultants, therapists, interior decorators and more professionals that donate their time and services to Safe Passage to help these women build their confidence.
The afternoon ended on a rhythmic and inspirational choreography by Che Cindera, choreographer to Michael Jackson and Dancing With the Stars. Cindera connects emotion with character driven movements, using imagery and storytelling, to produce a powerful and expressive way of moving.
Safe Passage Founder and Ceo Trish Steele said, “Today’s successful event will help more women. I want to thank The West Clovernook Society--these six beautiful women, from inside out, took their time to give so much to Safe Passage. They really care about women who suffer from domestic violence.”
Steele was also ecstatic that the Palomar Hotel donated the wonderful buffet lunch and a hotel room to auction.
The West Clovernook Society, a chapter of New York’s Clovernook Society, was created by six women living in Los Angeles who have a passion for giving and raising awareness and funds for charities that make a difference. This event was their first event.
The West Clovernook Society raised $7,000. All proceeds benefitted Safe Passage.
