D.O.V.E.S. entertain and feed as they reap in donations for the Valley’s women and children in need
BRAWLEY – The philanthropic D.O.V.E.S foundation hosted their 28th annual Monte Carlo Night at the Stockmenâ€™s Club in Brawley, Saturday, March 15. An exquisitely endless buffet, elegant Middle Eastern gowns, and plenty of gambling filled the Bollywood-themed night. BollywoodÂ being the film industryÂ based in India.
All D.O.V.E. money raised from the popular event is distributed to carefully selected women and childrenâ€™s non-profit organizations based in the Imperial Valley.Â Â Last year, over $50,000 was raised through the organization and dispersed between different organizations. The committee estimates the same amount to be raised this year at Monte Carlo Night.
D.O.V.E.S. president Liz Mamer commented that, â€œSometimes, economic times are tough, but the Valley always manages to pull through and support deserving charities.â€
Mamer, as well as the other ladies of D.O.V.E.â€™s, say they are blessed to help give back to the community.
Auctions and prizes, donated by gracious sponsors, were raffled throughout the night, with many thanks to the participants for their support.
While Bollywood Monte Carlo Night may be over this year, preparations for the next fun- themed Monte Carlo Night are right around the corner.
