Divine Diva has years of experience in making any event flawless. From birthdays, to weddings, award ceremonies, graduations and more. Events go extremely well when passionate people drive the motivation behind the event, which is why this month’s blog post covers the Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Foundation.
The Black Women Lawyers Association is anything but new to The City of Angels. As a non-profit corporation founded in 1975 by a small group of African-American women, this community of women have held luncheons since its inception to award brilliant and passionate African-American women who are pursuing their law degree. Having met in 1975 to discuss the representation and needs of Black women in the legal field, The Black Women Lawyers ("BWL") Association of Los Angeles and its foundation have awarded more than $230,000 in scholarships and grants to second and third year law students.
In late May, Divine Diva Events had the honor of coordinating a grand event: The 39th Annual Scholarship Dinner and Awards Luncheon hosted by the Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Foundation. Held at the beautiful Casa Del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica, the venue has an established elegance, perfect for the elite attendees and their cause. In order to keep attention on the elegance of the room and the occasion, we opted for a deep purple and crisp white palette. From the moment guests arrived, they admired the lavish architecture, decor, and intimate surroundings.
As table centerpieces, we had flowers beautifully designed by Christina Bentley of Scarlet Flowers Designs. Guests dined on the delectable luncheon menu and enjoyed libations to get them in the mood for the spirited raffle. Cheesecake de Granger created the decadent cheesecake pops that awaited the guests at each table. We also had the pleasure of designing all of the gift baskets which were raffled off in order to raise money for future scholarship awards.
The attendees enjoyed themselves and money was raised for future scholarship awards. All in all, the event was a success! The memories were successfully captured by Debra Simmons of Diamond Dust Photography.
