If you missed our Operation Cover Those Toes Sock Hop at the Westfield Topanga mall on January 25th, you missed a fun event. Sweet Charities San Fernando Valley raised over $1200 in cash, and collected hundreds of new or slightly used shoes and brand new packages of sock that were donated to benefit M.E.N.D.
Sean Lee of Masters of Ceremony was MC and dance instruction was provided by Dance 10. Members of the Pierce College Swing Dance Team helped out with the dancing. Art Rebel, a Topanga mall store provided a crafts table for the kids. There were hula hoops, games and many raffle prizes.
Cookies were deliciously baked by Delicious Bakery, Rachel’s Goodies (Rachel Bruskoff) and Sharone Rosen.
Other sponsors included:
Westfield Topanga (Tammy Billings, Bernice Lee and Cynthia)
Rachel Bruskoff – Rachel’s Goodies
Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids at the Topanga Mall
Spa Escapes – Deana Cobey
Sweet Charities San Fernando Valley members also provided Gift Baskets and certificates for raffle prizes.
Sisters, husbands and many other volunteers helped out with lifting, decorating etc. It was a wonderful day for all.
Operation Cover Those Toes is an ongoing project. If you have new or slightly used shoes, packages of new socks or cash to donate, please contact Star Tomlinson at 818 -602-5959.
