EVENT VIDEO RECAP
by Leroy Hamilton
PHENOMENAL EVENT! We had an amazing time. From the VIP reception to the pink carpet walk, to the fashion show, auction, etc. MAN! It was fun-filled.
CEO, Trena Lawson Group
We had a ball and will definitely make it every year moving forward.
What an amazing event!!! We had the best time! So much fun. Kim Whitley is hysterical! We were bellyache laughing. The perfect person to lead an auction.
Areva’s speech was so inspiring! It was like being at church. Beautifully done.
As we walked through the hotel, on the way to the car park, following the trail of pink-clad sisterhood, everyone was raving about what a great time they had.
Thank you beautiful! This was such an amazing event! My sister and nephew both live with Autism and it was such a joyous benefit to celebrate their lives, and awareness, and to bring love and light to those of us and others that have special needs angels that fulfill our lives💕 Such an honor and pleasure.

14th Annual Pink Pump Affair; Strutting For A Cause
Autism and special needs children matter, and the success of the 14th annual Pink Pump Affair proved just that. More than 350 dynamic women came together this past Sunday, May 15, at The Beverly Hilton Hotel to benefit the Special Needs Network (SNN), a nonprofit addressing autism and other developmental disabilities crises throughout Southern California. While funds were raised at this event, Black women were also honored, and creatives had the opportunity to share their talents through an exclusive fashion show.
All proceeds from A Pink Pump Affair will help us finish the job with the C.A.D.D., so that SNN will finally have a central location where we can bring all our programs and services together under one roof. We are overjoyed at the prospect of how this will enhance the focus of our work in the South Los Angeles community.
