WHW Celebrates 25 Iconic Years - April 2018
On Saturday, April 7th, WHW supporters, donors, volunteers and guests gathered together to celebrate 25 Iconic Years of Empowering Employment Success! This year’s Annual Luncheon and Fashion Show went Hollywood including red carpet photos and an outdoor ocean-view Martini Reception, Silent Auction and Wine Pull. With décor provided by Freeman, complimentary Martinis sponsored by Spa Girl Cocktails, over 100 Silent Auction selections and 250 bottles of Mystery Wine, guests mingled and toasted the impact of serving over 90,000 job seekers at no charge since 1993. When the ballroom opened, guests were treated to a program that included a gourmet luncheon, a video about WHW’s work in the community, a touching testimony from a WHW Job Seeker, a moving call to action, a lively live auction and a fashion show that featured black, white and silver fashions from WHW’s Deja New. Thanks to event sponsors: Capital Group, 24 Hours Home Care, Antis Roofing and Waterproofing, The Bascom Group, First Bank, Neal Family Foundation, UPS, US Bank and Wells Fargo, Pacific Western Bank, Concordia University, Stifel, Union Bank and JP Morgan Chase, underwriters: Freeman, Spa Girls Cocktails, B2B CFO, Tarbell Realtors, Elite Court Reporting, PIMCO and the Orange County Register, and a host of volunteers, WHW raised over $225,000 to continue the mission of providing the unemployed and underemployed the skills and resources they need to get and keep a good job!
