En Vogue's Rhona Bennett Hosts Evening Of Impact & Empowerment

Hosted by En Vogue's RHONA BENNETT, Always In The Club sponsored an incredible event with Featured Changemakers at the historic Next Door Lounge in Hollywood!

After our Day of Hope event earlier in the day that pampered and empowered survivors of domestic abuse, Rhona joined the women for an Evening of Impact and gifted them signed copies of her book 'Saving Your Soul.' Thanks Rhona!! 💜

Co-hosted by Always In The Club's RACHEL CARLSEN (Founder, Create Impact), our mission was simple that night - to empower our guests with tools, guidance, and a network community of Changemakers to maximize their goals in socially conscious business and philanthropy.

This event featured a live auction of VIP experiences, and Exclusive Networking Opportunities with venture capitalists and other investors, business leaders, and socially conscious entrepreneurs who are experts in their individual fields.

The evening spotlighted the need for more funding of diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, with a particular focus on accelerating investments into women entrepreneurs. Special Guest Speakers included:

  • Axel Tillmann (California Inclusivity Fund);

  • Duránd and Maya Elz Davis (Co-Founders, Managing & General Partners of M&D Ventures and LavLabs); and

  • Moe Rock (President of the World Philanthropy Group, Award-winning Producer, and CEO of The Los Angeles Tribune)

Create Impact's Rachel Carlsen also presented Rhona with its Ray of Light Certificate of Appreciation for her extraordinary commitment to supporting the empowerment of women.
