Bloom 2018

BLOOM was born on the belief that as women and mothers we need to take care of ourselves first so that we can properly care for our families. BLOOM is a day to relax, renew our spirits, and learn how to nourish our minds, bodies and souls. This year, celebrity television personality, Antonio Sabato, Jr. hosted our day which included inspirational keynotes by medical and lifestyle experts. We were thrilled to honor Elizabeth Rusnak Arizmendi, business woman, philathropist and ovarian cancer survivor. Our speakers included Michelle Poler, Dr. Karen Wolfe and Mallika Chopra.

Participants enjoyed the BLOOM Pop Up Shoppes & Sustainability Lounge including several new and exciting vendors along with health and wellness tastings and demonstrations.

Charitable institutions like Children's Hospital Los Angeles depend on the support of companies and people like you, and we hope you will consider a sponsorship, gift or donation.
