H.E.L.P. Enjoys “Moonlight on the Serengeti”

H.E.L.P. held its 2014 annual Celebrate Summer fundraiser, themed “Moonlight on the Serengeti,” on a balmy June 6 evening at the Palos Verdes Golf Club. With a raffle prize of a 10-day luxury safari to Kenya and Tanzania, donated by Macato Safaris, and guests attired in everything from black tie to safari helmets, the lively crowd enjoyed a celebration of the work of H.E.L.P.

One Elegant Evening

H.E.L.P.’s fifteenth anniversary celebration, “One Elegant Evening: 15 Years in the Making”, on July 8th, 2011, was a huge success. Nearly 200 supporters attended the annual Celebrate Summer fundraiser at Trump National Golf Club, which was chaired by Sharon Ryan. The evening began with a cocktail reception held on the veranda overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The silent auction, with delicious hors d’oeuvres, was accompanied by music and commentary from Teddy Johnson. The reception was followed by an elegant dinner, with views of the sunset, and a live auction.

Our History

H.E.L.P. was founded in 1996 by Ed and Pat Long.

Starting out as a "Mom and Pop" effort, H.E.L.P. has grown to the point where more than 40 "aunts, uncles, godparents and good friends" volunteer their time to help older adults through H.E.L.P. Many more individuals, couples and families generously donate to keep H.E.L.P.'s services available to the community.
