LOL Mixer Nov 15th 6-8PM
Wednesday November 15 from 6-8pm
Join us for the LOL-PS November Women’s Mixer at Evzin Palm Springs, a hip new restaurant and bar located at the Caliente Tropics Hotel. Come to socialize, network, see old friends and make some new ones! Evzin will have happy hour drink prices and light snacks for our group.
The charge is $10 at the door, with 100% of the proceeds going to a local charity – since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, it seemed appropriate to have this mixer benefit those in our community who need food and shelter, so the proceeds will be split between two great local organizations: Find Food Bank and Well In The Desert. Both of these organizations provide food and assistance for those in need here in the Coachella Valley, a worthwhile cause any time of year.

**** White elephants" are traditionally presents that are undesirable but one cannot turn down: extremely tacky, nearly useless, silly or weird. In white elephant gift exchanges the goal is really to have fun. Most is to give everyone a chance to rid themselves of these tacky gifts—and invariably gain a new one!****
