Girls Night Out
Second Annual Girls Night Out a Knock-Out!
Once again, the fabulous supporters of Count On Me kicked it into high gear and made the second annual Girls Night Out a fantastic FUNdraiser!
Nearly one hundred beautiful ladies filled the Manhattan Beach 900 Club and enjoyed great appetizers from Dave and the 900 Club team; wine by Wilson Creek Winery; specialty cocktails by Nekter Juice Bar and Tito’s Handmade Vodka; and yummy sweet treats from Easy Does It and Brigadeiro. The event was simply amazing and we are SO grateful to the more than 75 vendors, boutiques and businesses that provided phenomenal items for our Balloon Pop and swagalicious Fab Bags.
Because of the generosity of our Girls Night Out attendees, Count On Me raised over $12,000 – exceeding the past Girls Night Out and providing even more support to our annual Holiday Shops.
Thank you to all the ladies who joined us! You have wonderfully kind hearts and you made our #CocktailsForACause an outstanding event that will help many kiddos in need!

#GivingTuesday Gives Us Goosebumps!
We are excited to participate in #GivingTuesday – an international movement that celebrates generosity during the holiday shopping season. #GivingTuesday takes place every year on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.
Count On Me has jumped onto the spirit of giving bandwagon and so did you! During the entire month of December 2015, you, our supporters, joined us in giving the gift of gift-giving. We raised nearly $15,000 and those funds supported our annual Holiday Shops, which also took place in December and allowed us to make a positive impact on over 1,000 children in six hospitals across five states.
A GIANT thank you to all of you across the country who continue participating in our #GivingTuesday campaigns!

Past Fundraising Events
Tenth Annual Jim Mora Celebrity Golf Classic Hosted by Nelson & Sharon Rising
The Tenth Annual Jim Mora Celebrity Golf Classic hosted by Nelson & Sharon Rising drew a sold out crowd of charity-minded celebrities and sponsors raising a record $605,000 for Count On Me. The event officially kicked off with a VIP Appreciation Party sponsored by TVG Executive Search and hosted by the W Los Angeles-West Beverly Hills, followed by a full day on the Riviera Country Club Golf Course and ending with the BackSwing Bash - a festive silent auction happy hour and live auction dinner.
The tournament was a fun-filled adventure - sponsored foursomes were matched with a guest celebrity for a day of golf, delicious food and beverages, exciting contests and tee prizes. The event wrapped at the Annual BackSwing Bash which included happy hour, dinner and auction featuring a unique array of silent and live items. Heartwarming testimonials were shared by Special Olympics Ambassador and cast member of Born This Way, Caley Versfelt, and Watts/Willowbrook Boys & Girls Club members, Marlenne Garcia and Damarion Smith.
Because of the generosity of Count On Me donors and partners, the food, beverages, prizes, swag and auction items were provided at little to no cost to the Foundation, allowing the funds raised to directly impact children.
Thank you to our past sponsors!
