About our Chosen Charity: The Country Friends
On Wednesday, August 8, we’re hosting our 4th annual community celebration and charity fundraiser to benefit The Country Friends, a local nonprofit that helps people in need in our community, with a special focus on women, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities.
What started as the Grand Opening celebration of our 4S Ranch location has turned into a yearly much-anticipated fun and lively night for the neighborhood. “We are truly blessed to be a part of such a vibrant and caring community. This event is a chance not only for us to celebrate our four-year anniversary in 4S Ranch, but also to give back to the community that we call home,” says Dr. Yoo.
Dubbed the #SKY4Year event, 100% of the opportunity drawing proceeds and 20% of all sales will be donated to The Country Friends. “We first heard about the good work of The Country Friends in 2015 at their Art of Fashion fundraiser,” explains Amber. “I was immediately impressed by the powerful impact they've had on our community for more than sixty years. We've been sponsoring the Art of Fashion ever since and are happy to be able to give back even more this year through our #SKY4Year celebration.”
Supporting People in Need Since 1954
The Country Friends was founded in 1954 by a group of charitable women on a mission to support human care agencies in San Diego County, with a special focus on women, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities. Women who joined the group paid an annual membership fee, held regular membership meetings, and coordinated several fundraising efforts throughout the year. Two of those fundraising efforts, launched by The Country Friends in its first year, are still going strong today: the Consignment Shop and The Art of Fashion.
The Consignment Shop
In its first year, The Country Friends was gifted a small shop in Rancho Santa Fe, which they renamed the the Trader’s Shop and is now simply the Consignment Shop. Staffed completely by volunteers, the shop continues to be the primary source of funding for The Country Friends, re-selling antiques, art, crystal and furniture. Today, the consignment shop has expanded its footprint on the corner of El Tordo and Avenida de Acacias.
The Art of Fashion
Also started in 1954 was what has become the largest outdoor fashion show in the country, The Art of Fashion. Held annually at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, what started as a poolside amateur fashion show with tea and homemade sandwiches has evolved into one of the premiere style events in Southern California, featuring the Fall/Winter collections of South Coast Plaza fashion designers. We are proud to be a 2016-18 Art of Fashion sponsor and to have our VP Amber serve on this year's event committee!
The story behind The Country Friends is a powerful example of the big impact a small group of dedicated volunteers can make. What once started as less than 200 members has swelled to more than 2,000 today. Over the past 64 years, The Country Friends is responsible for providing nearly 14 million dollars to human care agencies throughout San Diego County!
