Palm Springs Pathfinders has perfect timing when it comes to giving from the heart.
The non-profit's annual gala is planned for February 16, 2013 at Rancho Las Palmas Resort in Rancho Mirage, CA. Palm Springs Pathfinders is dedicated to raising funds for the Boys & Girls Club of Palm Springs and Pathfinder Ranch. It's no coincidence that they have scheduled the gala right after Valentine's Day.
"What better way than to share a lovely evening with that special person in your life and know that you can help local children?" commented Roberta Klein, Gala co-chair.
Founded in 1957, Pathfinders is one of the valley's oldest charities. With over 125 members, they host monthly luncheons, raising funds through the annual gala and the generosity of their members.
"We have one event each year to support our cause" noted Aliede Bennett, Board chair. "We take extra time to ensure that participants have a wonderful time and understand that 100 percent of the monies we raise, after event expenses, go to these two important programs. We all want leave a legacy of making the world a little better place. Here, we have a chance to make an immediate impact."
This year's gala, The Love of the Children, starts with cocktails at 6 p.m. and features a silent auction, live auction, and entertainment. Back by popular demand is 13 year-old Palm Desert student and Open Call Finalist, Haley Varela, who spellbound the audience last year.
Pathfinders welcome new members and Angels who share their passion to support our local children. Individual tickets for the event are $200. Angel recognition (preferred seating and program listing) is $500 per ticket. Table options are available to include a table for 12 with ringside seating for a $10,000 contribution.
"We have a spectacular event planned. We invite anyone who has a special place in their heart for children and wants to have a lovely evening with your special someone" said Klein.
