Girls Night Out - raising funds, awareness, and laughter!

October 5,6,7 marked the 8th Annual Girls Night Out fundraiser for The Wellness Community held at the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, California. One of the event’s major sponsors for the October 6th evening, Torrance Memorial Hospital, chose sockprints as the official party favor. We were thrilled to work with Torrance Memorial’s staff to create a unique take-home gift for the 220+ women in attendance. Sockprints came up with a fun image incorporating the Girls Night Out logo and Torrance Memorial’s logo for the socks. Take a look…

Sockprints fan and friend Anne Marie Quillin, was a featured speaker sharing her breast cancer survivor story that night. Her story is an inspiration to all! We also heard from Dr. Patricia Sacks who mentioned new developments for breast cancer treatment, and reminded us that the best medicine is laughter… so fitting for the comedy show that followed!

In addition to the great information and stories shared, I am always touched by the people who live in my community and contribute to events like this. I am truly grateful to those who volunteer and work at places like The Wellness Community and Torrance Memorial Hospital. I’m also inspired by the individual and corporate sponsors who donate to this cause. From individual women breaking out their checkbooks at the auction, and Shape Shift, our neighborhood pilates studio, to Trump National Golf Club in Palos Verdes -- all donations raised over $90,000 for the 3-night event. I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention the generosity of the comedians and the Comedy & Magic Club.
