Elevate is a one day leadership accelerator for black women uniquely designed to help you brand your brilliance, revolutionize the way you lead, and amplify your vision, voice and visibility! Learn what it takes to brand your brilliance in a way that attracts the right strategic relationships for success.
FACT: 44% of Black women feel that their career is stalled.
FACT: Black women earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by white women.
FACT: Black women lack the strategic relationships (mentors/sponsors) necessary to ascend.
It’s these facts that make The Black Women’s Collective and the Black Women Elevate Experience so necessary. The reality is that black women are losing ground in closing the pay gap and the only way to turn that around starts at Elevate.

This event means to grow awareness of the worldwide water crisis and to provide access to clean water in Kenya. The Hermosa Beach event traditionally includes 300 walkers who participate in a 4-mile walk or run on the Strand between the Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach Piers. Walkers will meet at American Junkie where they will check in, receive t-shirts, create signs and get some pre-walk inspiration. Bring a friend, bring your dog, and walk, run, bike or skate as we come together this Earth Day and raise money for clean water!
A celebratory pancake breakfast at American Junkie restaurant follows, with entertainment, games, raffle and prizes for top fundraisers.

This annual fundraising event is in it’s 12th year, created by two local kids, Sebastian and Julian Kuhr. They gather pledges and donations for the HB school district each year and then skate for two hours with the community. They do tricks, teach other kids how to skate, all while raising money. They invite everyone to join them in the skatepark. The more the merrier!

Pets in the Park serves as a FUNdraiser for Friends of the Parks non-profit organization and provides local businesses with the opportunity to brand their company and meet many of the pet owners in the South Bay. The annual Pets in the Park event is also designed to help educate our community on local laws and petiquette. While we all love our pets, some pet owners aren’t aware of local ordinances and/or being responsible pet parents. FOP hopes to help in educating and celebrating all pets on May 5. This year a Guest Speaker series has been added to include Dr. Alice Villalobos, Vet Tech Erika Berlant, CERT team demonstrating Pet CPR and Community Services Division Manager Georgia Moe speaking on Pet Safety and Diseases caused by not picking up pet waste. Funds raised at this event go directly back to the Hermosa community, parks and recreation activities like Movies on the Beach.
