Hearts of Hermosa Thank You!

We are still swooning over the super swell evening that was Hearts of Hermosa this past weekend. We hope everyone who attended had a fun night!
Click here to see photos from the evening.

We are thrilled to report that Hearts of Hermosa raised approximately
$259,000 for our schools!

We have many individuals and businesses to thank for being a part of Hearts of Hermosa. Hermosa Beach Education Foundation is grateful for the countless hours that our volunteers gave to create a gorgeous evening for all of us to enjoy.

A special thank you to the City of Hermosa Beach and all of the staff members who guided us in the planning and allowed us to transform the Community Center parking lot into a Gatsby Garden Oasis!
