|Second SD Sparkles Children’s Fundraiser Hits it Out of Park|
San Diego youth strolled the runway for San Diego Sparkles Foundation’s Children’s Benefit Fashion Show on Aug. 26, 2023 at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines hotel. The Fashion Show and auction was a resounding success raising $100,000.
“The San Diego community hit it out of the ballpark,” said Kathy Kassardjian, SparkleS president. “We had VIP Padres Tickets and a Machado autographed baseball that got the bidding going wild.”
San Diego SparkleS Foundation is dedicated to protecting at-risk children at home and abroad. The second year event included a festive reception and musical entertainment.
San Diego fashions featured included: Pretty Please (Del Mar), 5 loaves two fish (Coronado), Satori Designs (Solana Beach) and Mabel’s (Solana Beach).
Guest speaker Summer Stephan, District Attorney of San Diego, spoke about the enormity of the child trafficking problem in the San Diego community and the need for more efforts to combat the growing trend.
“We will steward these funds to provide for warm shelter, food, clothing, blankets and most of all, hope,” said Kassardjian.
