This event was brought back by popular demand after being put on hold for two years due to the pandemic. The Neptunian Woman’s Club, a new venue for the event, was bedazzled in pink, as were the nearly 400 ladies sporting pink boas, wigs, and tiaras. Each evening kicked off with a festive cocktail hour featuring signature pink drinks, tasty appetizers, and a selection of curated raffle packages, and live auction items emceed by comedian Sean Leary .The live auction included a special appearance by Redondo Beach Fire Captain Curt Mahoney who helped auction a dinner, and fire patrol boat cruise for four.
