An amazing, inspiring Day on May 10th- with Arianna Huffington & Friends!

5jxXVzp1ZHwt05Q2ZiVV3Cb14gqtOBM2n_eFoXKl_7M We had a truly incredible, inspiring afternoon this past Saturday, May 10th, at the Malibu Jewish Center-with special friends Arianna Huffington...who spoke about the lessons that moved her to write her brand new book, Thrive (one month on the NY Times Bestseller's List!) writer and author of Unbinding the Heart, Agapi Stassinopoulos, Parenting Without Power Struggles Author-Susan Stiffelman, design entrepreneur Bobi Leonard, and a surprise visit from  Marianne Williamson (author of the iconic Return to Love)  (thank you, Mollie Meyer!) A wonderful day of celebration, wisdom-from-the-heart, and creating a community of kindred, like-minded souls. THANK YOU to our sponsors and dear friends: Nancy Dargan, The Fields Family Foundation, Marla Michaels, Ellen Poyer, Cha-Cha Weinstein- and to the supporters and friends who purchased tickets. Thanks also to amazing Master of Ceremonies- John Cygan, young singers extraordinaire Jonathon Forrester and Garrett Damico, and our truly great volunteers: Yovanny Bohannon, Lorie & Paul Campbell, Yael Juarez, Nancy King, Nick Kreider, Suzanne Matteson, Mollie Meyer and her friend Victoria, Patrick Stewart, photographer Christopher Rojas, Jasmin Romero, and Kat Yore (our main photographer, videographer and sound person!) We also have to thank Bobi Leonard for her great skincare products and Griffin Thall of Pura Vida for his awesome surf bracelets (Pura Vida will be doing a custom bracelet for the CLF this summer!) and Bellamici for donating the Thrive books! (thanks Diesel Books Malibu for the  great discount!)  Richard and Donna of Monrose did a fine job catering and creating cocktails for us- and their special friends even donated some WONDERFUL champagne to our Brunch. Thank you, everyone, for truly making this an extraordinary day to remember...Here is a great piece in the Malibu Times by Jimy Tallal-enjoy- and THANK YOU- to everyone!
