We couldn’t do what we do without partnerships like ours with Diablo Magazine—Brooke Kuhn, Executive Director, Girls on the Run of the Bay
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2015
“Living Your Best Life” was the theme of Diablo magazine’s annual Diablo Women event, celebrating professional women of the East Bay, held on May 7, 2015, at the newly renovated Pleasant Hill Community Center. Presented by Diablo magazine and Contra Costa Oncology, the evening opened with a networking cocktail reception attended by over 450 Diablo businesswomen.
Each May, Diablo recognizes women of the East Bay with featured content spotlighting the region’s women to watch and a special advertising section in the issue. These businesswomen are invited to attend the event for the opportunity to network and inspire. Diablo Women 2015 event partners were: Heller Jewelers, presenting the Grand Prize; supporting partner, the Claremont Hotel Club and Spa; and spirit partner Skinnygirl Cocktails. The raffle raised over $8,000 to support Girls on the Run of the Bay Area, an organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident, using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
The event featured a panel discussion: Living Your Best Life—Mind, Body, and Spirit. Susan Safipour, Editor in Chief, Diablo magazine, hosted the panel. Panelists included: Mariam Safinia, head of the Northern California School of Practical Philosophy; Sara Gottfried, author of the New York Times bestselling book The Hormone Cure; and Saint Mary’s College leadership instructor Maura Wolf, author of What Matters Most: Everyday Leadership at Home, at Work, and in the World.
Brooke Kuhn, Executive Director, Girls on the Run of the Bay Area, notes, “We were thrilled that Diablo chose Girls on the Run of the Bay Area as their charity for this year’s event. The $8,025 raised is helping us to cover the expenses of serving one of our most high-need teams in the East Bay and cover the costs of training 150 volunteer coaches to serve the 2,000 girls in our confidence-building program next school year. We couldn’t do what we do without partnerships like ours with Diablo Magazine.”
