Join us Sunday, August 4th at Quartyard in downtown San Diego from 2-7 pm.

4th of July Bash
Hello! Lauren Turton here.
I wanted to share a video with you highlighting the Fourth of July Bash that Clement Connor and I hosted that raised over $4,000!
video coming soon 🙂
We wanted to host a Fourth Of July party and we thought it would be a great day to also give back. Due to our efforts, our sponsors, and our friends we raised over $4,000.
In January of this year, I volunteered at an orphanage in southern India that has 100 children living there and over 700 children in their off-site program. After returning to the US I made a goal to give back at least one day a month, resulting in the program I created, At Least One Day A Month. If you aren’t following us on Instagram please give us a follow! @AtLeastOneDayAMonth
Also, after my return, I was linked with Zak Franklin who had started a US non-profit, Namaste Wings To Fly America which helps provide children in India education and essential services to allow them to develop the skills to become self-sufficient upon adulthood. Zak brought me on as Vice President and one of the first projects we agreed to sponsor was a women’s computer center that allows over 100 women a year have access to educational courses and computers. The amount needed for the 2020 sponsorship is $2,000. At Clement and I’s Fourth of July Bash, we raised that money through financial donations and the auction of a painting from San Diego artist, Austin Reed. A lovely lady, Julie Nguyen bid on the piece and later told me she wanted to empower other women through education.
A special thank you to Diaa El Al for helping Clement and I organize the party, Sam Walton who managed the bar, and Ambrogio 15 for donating pizzas! And of course, thank you to all the guests who made the party and BLAST and helped us raise over $4,000!
Yours in service and here to inspire,
