For the second year in a row, I celebrated with the Sandpipers Community for their 22nd Annual Fashion Show & Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The day began with a silent auction comprised of stylish products and services donated by top companies such as Neutrogena, Trina Turk, Stila and more! In the upstairs boutique, bidders could shop South Bay local vendors and gifts with a percentage of proceeds leading back to the Sandpipers charitable causes.
Once the silent auction closed, guests enjoyed lunch provided by the hotel along with a runway presentation by Los Angeles designer Trina Turk for her Spring/Summer collection.
The Sandpipers organization consists of entrepreneurial women, career driven mothers, head of households and overall inspiring women of all ages who live in the South Bay or surrounding areas. The group provides a charitable outlet, support for local businesses and individuals, as well as networking opportunities for their members and community.
Each year, they welcome members to join and give back to their neighborhood through various programs and events. The Annual Fashion Show & Luncheon is their main celebratory event, which has included guest designers and supporters such as BCBG, Halston Heritage and Lily Pulitzer in the previous years.
