PR Divas Holiday Party for Hands Together

‘Tis the season for Holiday Parties!  LVM recently gathered with fellow PR Divas for a holiday gathering in support of literacy through Hands Together, a center for children and their families.

Hands Together provides the highest quality early education and care to families of the working poor who are striving to gain stability, improve their lives, and emerge from poverty.  More specifically, they aim to enhance academics for preschoolers in order to better prepare them for elementary school. They believe that a preschool education is crucial for long term development and every child should have access to quality early childhood education regardless of economic status. To contribute to this worthy cause, PR Divas collected children’s books from every attendee at their Holiday Party as a donation to Hands Together.

PR Divas is a group of OC-based, Public Relations professionals who support each other and share resources, opportunities, experiences and more.  Thank you to all the ‘Divas’ who planned this wonderful holiday gathering!  Merry Christmas to all!

We recently celebrated the Holiday Season with our client The Private Bank of California at their beautiful holiday party in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles.  The event took place in the elegant and famed Library of the Jonathan Club, an establishment whose core values of excellence and camaraderie ring true with the Bank.

Guests were treated to hors d’ oeuvres and holiday libations and participated in a special raffle that helped garner food donations for the LA Regional Food Bank.  The night also commemorated a special milestone for the Bank – seven years of success!  We are very proud and thankful to have had the opportunity to support the Bank over the past few years and look forward to seven more years of success!

To express their appreciation, the Bank donated funds, on behalf of their clients, to the LA Regional Food Bank – a donation which will provide for 20,000 meals for the hungry throughout Los Angeles County.

A special thank you to the Bank for including us in the festivities!
