The 3rd Annual Present Now women’s getaway weekend held January 21st and 22nd at the Estancia Hotel & Spa, hosted by Santa Monica-based charity Present Now, raised over $200,000. The funds will support and expand Present Now’s gifting program that brings hope and joy to children living in 16 LA-area domestic violence shelters.
The weekend brought women from all over the country together to support the mission of PRESENT NOW. The event began on Saturday with an afternoon trunk show filled with local LA boutique vendors, followed by an evening filled with a silent and live auction, dinner, comedian and two speakers from the Center for Community Solutions: Project Safehouse. The weekend was rounded out by Yoga hosted by The Pilates Fix and Speir Pilates.
Since 2013, PRESENT NOW has given out over 1,500 gifts to children living in California transitional domestic violence shelters. Their goal is to cover the entire state of California by the end of 2017.
