CARLSBAD — A Hope for Children of Haiti event was hosted Jan. 30 by Pink Elephants Nannies at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort in Carlsbad.
The event raised just more than $3,000 dollars, which will all be donated to the American Red Cross. There were more than 40 silent auction items and more than 50 raffle items at the event.
The community came together for this effort, offering their goods and services. Jennifer West did caricatures and facepainting, Mobile Photo Booth provided a photo booth, Daniel Knighton of Pixel Perfect Images offered his photography services, DJ Aesthetix provided the music, Karl Strauss donated the beer, Pat and Oscars donated breadsticks, Boston’s Gourmet Pizza donated pasta, Kate and Kaylies Confections did the desserts, and coffee was provided by Rick and Shana Frey of RS Health Solutions.
There was also a fashion show with clothing provided by Henning Boutique in Solana Beach.
