BLESS THE BEASTS & THE CHILDREN
Join the Fun on Saturday, September 7th, 2013
On Saturday, September 7, you are invited to join the Rotary Club of Woodland Hills Charitable Foundation and Malibu Pet Companions when we host the Bless the Beasts & the Children event at a private estate in Malibu.
Last year’s event was a huge success with more than 320 guests enjoying an elegant evening that included live music, a hosted bar, a lavish dinner buffet, silent and live auctions. This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better, so we hope you’ll join in the fun.
Our honorees this year are MPC President Robin Kahrs and Rotarian Sheri Polak. These two women have dedicated years of service and love to children and homeless animals, and we are pleased to celebrate their generosity, caring and dedication to “beasts and children.”
All the information about the event including how to buy tickets, sponsor a table, buy a program book ad or donate an auction item can be found at http://events.rcwh.org
Tickets to the event are $100 each and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Last year’s event sold out weeks in advance so don’t wait too long to buy your tickets.
PICTURES FROM LAST YEAR'S EVENT
My Fellow Rotarians - Our first annual Bless the Beasts & the Children event was a great success. We honored Dave Woods as well as Malibu Coast Animal Hospital and in the process, we raised more than $40,000 for Rotary projects benefitting children and Malibu Pet Companions' work on behalf of homeless animals. Our Master of Ceremonies, Dick Van Dyke, was funny and entertaining.
The event was held at the home of Honorary Rotarian Dr. Amarjit Marwah who was, as always, a gracious host.
Many Rotarians from our club enjoyed the evening with music by the Symphomaniacs, and a delicious buffet dinner and dessert.
For those of you who were unable to attend, we think you missed a real treat!
The weather was beautiful, the event was lovely, our honoree Dave Woods was inspiring, and we all had a great time.
We hope to make this a recurring event and hope it will only grow into something even more fabulous in future years.
Steven Prakash, thanks so much for these great photos of the event!!
