Sunset Sip 2017

On the evening of Saturday, November 11th, The Guidance Center hosted our 7th annual Sunset Sip: Nurture Your Inner Child, at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach, California.  Sunset Sip is an evening for our friends and supporters to not only raise mental health awareness in our communities, but also to come together and raise funds that will allow us to continue providing services to economically-disadvantaged children and families who are struggling with mental illness and abuse.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old;
we get old because we stop playing.”

-George Bernard Shaw.

From The Guidance Center’s CEO, Patricia Costales, LCSW, and Sunset Sip Event Team & Committee,  Thank you! Sunset Sip 2017 was a record-breaking success thanks to generous supporters like you!

Check out our digital tribute book, which includes highlights from the event’s festivities and total funds raised.
