CLIMB: Angel City Derby 2012

On Saturday, April 21, 2012, CLIMB, Inc. hosted over 400 guests at the Santa Anita Park for the 2nd Annual Angel City Derby spring fundraiser. The “Angel City Derby: Day at the Races” was the west coast version of the renowned “Kentucky Derby” for urban professionals in the Southern California area.

Supporters were treated to a fun-filled day with networking, live music, fashion, and style. Some of the things that made this day shine included live music from CREATION, food by Harold and Bells, DJ R-Tistic, as well as our “Best Hat” and “Best Dressed” Contests, where winners were chosen by audience applause.

In addition to the fashion and music of the day, the event included a silent auction, which sported items from J’s Clothing, Coach, Miss Jessie’s, Savvy Bag, UCLA football tickets, Traci Lynn Jewelry, and more; the bidding was competitive and many guests walked away with items that were already on their “must have” list. In addition to our silent auction items, our guests were also given event gift bags with items donated from Karl Kani, Courvoisier, Lean Plus, Boomdizzle, and more. And we don’t want to forget the Miss Jessie’s bags that were filled with over $70 of hair products.

This is an annual event that should not be missed!
