Where to Send the Loot

Your presence is your gift to us. We appreciate that for many of you, Palm Springs isn't easy to get to. In lieu of gifts, we will be accepting donations at the reception for Shelter from the Storm, a victim's rights organization that we strongly believe in. (Raymond is a recent addition to The Board of Directors.) Shelter From The Storm provides comprehensive services to victims of domestic violence—professionally, ethically, and compassionately.
