Love Benefit Thanks and a Video

By, September 01, 2015

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been showcasing many of the vendors we love working with, and those who sponsored The Love Benefit event. This event was held on June 2, 2015 at the beautiful Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe. There were over 300 in attendance, with a silent auction, live music from The Mar Dels, amazing drinks and cuisine, and a surprise appearance by our company’s founder, Aaron Feldman. It was an incredible evening, and it could never have happened without the love and support of everyone involved.

To enjoy highlights from this event, check out this awesome video by local videographer Taylor D’Apice

We would also like to thank the wonderful contributors and volunteers who helped to make this event so extraordinary.
