Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Bloom with Grace

Bloom was born on the belief that women and mothers need to take care of themselves first so that they may properly care for their families. So, on March 2, women (and a few men) gathered to renew their spirits and learn more about how to nourish their minds, bodies, and souls. This year, celebrity TV personality Antonio Sabato, Jr., presided over the day, which included inspirational keynotes by medical and lifestyle experts Dr. Karen Wolfe, Mallika Chopra, and Michelle Poler. The guest of honor was business woman, ovarian cancer survivor, and philanthropist Elizabeth Rusnak Arizmendi. Nordstrom, Rusnak Auto Group/Karma, and Sharon and John Tesoriero were the presenting sponsors.

Participants enjoyed the BLOOM pop-up shops, including several new and exciting vendors, perusing clothing from Blush and Sugar and offerings from many other vendors with products ranging from home goods to skincare. A sustainability lounge was also open, along with special health and wellness tastings and demonstrations. All donations and proceeds supported Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
