The Pacific Palisades Woman's Club hosted it's annual
Grant Awards Night Tuesday, March 7th, awarding over
$31,000 to charitable organizations in the areas of arts, recreation, beautification, education, community and charitable organizations. Over 70 people representing 19 local on-profits and Club members filled the clubhouse enjoying hors e'oeuvres and desserts prepared by Club members and K Bakery before the award ceremony.

President Haldis Toppel welcomes the crowd and introduces Robin Weitz and Eva Iimo, the Grant Fund Committee who proudly gave out the awards on behalf of the Club. Funds for Grant Night are from the Home Tour proceeds; the Home Tour is the Club's biggest fundraising effort of the year, which takes place every November. Each year the PPWC members decide by vote how the funds are distributed. Over the years, the Club has awarded over $1 million in grant funds.
