A Royal Affaire at Trump National Golf Club

These photos were taken at a fundraiser for H.E.L.P. which was held at the Trump National Golf Club on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Friday evening. H.E.L.P. stands for Healthcare and Elder Law Programs which is a non-profit whose goal is to empower older adults and their families by providing impartial information, education and counseling on elder care, law, finances and consumer protection.

I met the organizers when I was covering the Palos Verdes Street Fair a couple weeks ago. When I discovered they were a non-profit and having a fundraiser I volunteered my services, which they accepted. The attendees were given dinner and an opportunity to bid in both a silent auction and a normal one. They also had a raffle for a trip to London, which I am sure you can guess, I did not win.

Torrance Kiwanis Texas Hold ‘em Charity Poker Tournament

These photos were taken Sunday at the Torrance Kiwanis annual Texas Hold ‘Em Charity Poker Tournament; which was held at the Palos Verdes Bowl in Torrance, CA. This is one of the Torrance Kiwanis biggest fundraisers of the year, so it was good to see the large turnout. In addition to the poker, there was a silent auction that included such items as tickets to an Angel’s game, bowling, Patron tequila and Dom Perignon champagne. Truly something for everyone.

The Kiwanis are a service club with about 8,000 chapters in 96 countries, with the mission: “To serve children of the world.” The Torrance Kiwanis strive to achieve this goal by providing scholarships to deserving high school students at West, South, North and Torrance high schools as well as volunteering at the Special Olympics and Santa’s Visit at Harbor UCLA Medical Center and numerous other activities.

I donated the watermark to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation because children suffer from Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease as well as adults. Continue reading

Counseling4Kids first annual Bowl4Kids at Palos Verdes Bowl

Monday evening, held their first annual bowl-a-thon at the Palos Verdes Bowl in Torrance, CA to help kick off National Foster Care Awareness Month. Bowl4Kids is a fundraiser that brought together local businesses and service organizations for a little friendly competition while helping Couseling4Kids to provide mental health services to children in Los Angeles County’s foster care system. The event was sponsored by Whole Foods Market in Torrance, California Credit Union and Kaiser Permanente and included trophies for Top Bowling Team and Top Bowler; as well as prizes for Top Fundraiser and Top Fundraising Group. Additional fund raising was done via a silent auction that included many nice donations, including tickets to an LA Galaxy home game, several gift baskets, lunch a Andre’s Restaurant, dinner at Tony Roma’s and Elephant Bar, a day at Total Woman Gym, theater tickets, a deluxe party at PV Bowl and much more; including a great big basket of cookies from Daddy’s Gourmet Cookies. To be honest, that is the one I wanted, but I was too busy taking photos to get my bid in on time.

I became aware of Conseling4Kids through our involvement with the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce. Since we started attending the TACC Networking at Noon events, we have started providing door prizes; including SEO reports and photo coverage of events. I was very happy when Counseling4Kids won the photo shoot as I have a special place in my heart for foster children and any organization that helps them. Continue reading
