Team Works

Sandpipers partnered with LA Team Mentoring to host a beach party to celebrate 76 at-risk middle school children who are a part of the LATM program on May 15th, 2014. It was a gorgeous sunny day and the kids took great delight in the beach activities, surfing and playing in the ocean. They also enjoyed the manicure and temporary tattoo stations, the photo booth complete with an array of props and of course the plentiful pizza, homemade cupcakes and treats. It was truly a fulfilling day for everyone involved! Thank you to all who came out to volunteer and support this event!

On November 30th, December 1st, and 2nd, 2012 Sandpipers showcased four distinctive homes in the South Bay for the 20th Annual Holiday Homes Tour. Each home was magnificently decorated by prominent local interior designers and magically transformed for the holidays with the help of many local florists and nurseries. In addition, a Holiday Boutique featuring local artisans and vendors and a Café were provided for the shopping and snacking convenience of attendees. The Holiday Homes Tour is a popular event in the community that annually attracts more than 3,000 patrons and garners tremendous support from numerous local businesses and community partners.

2013 Fashion Show – Thank You

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who helped make the 2013 Fashion Show an incredible success.  We would especially like to thank our title sponsor, Murad for their support!

This year’s show featured the Spring 2013 collection from HALSTON HERITAGE.  Once again the Beverly Wilshire served as the event’s venue and did not disappoint.  As the more than 550 guests entered the ballroom they were greeted with a goodie bag filled with fun items, a delicious lunch, a professional runway show and an exciting live auction.

Attendees were able to shop wonderful local artisans and an exclusive Halston Heritage boutique before and after the show.  They were also able to peruse a silent auction featuring over 150 packages and two incredible raffle opportunities.

We are excited to announce that because of your support, Sandpipers raised over $90,000 that day!

These funds will go to support Sandpipers’ philanthropic programs such as Back to School Shopping, Holiday Baskets, Scholarship, the Community Grant program and many others.  For more information about Sandpipers’ programs, please visit www.sandpipers.org.

With Gratitude,

Sandpipers
