This month’s charity, This Soldiers Organized Services (SOS) provides active-duty servicemen and women with free transportation, any day or night, between the Palm Springs and Ontario International Airports and the USMC Base in Twentynine Palms, CA. These dedicated volunteers provide free transport for active-duty military personnel, their families and sweethearts who are visiting their returning or deploying servicemen. These volunteers also provide a sense of family and support to those who call on them and offer a friendly ear to listen to
our servicemen and women. Volunteers offer hope, encouragement, gratitude, and respect to military personnel prior to an uncertain deployment. Since May of 2007, SOS has transported thousands of troops. Their goal is to establish SOS stations near every military base in the country. To learn more, visit their website: SOS rides
Gregory Goodman, owner of My Little Flower Shop in Palm Springs, created Wedding Warriors in 2010. The organization has become Riverside County’s top networking group for wedding, special event and hospitality professionals. Their goal is to promote the Coachella Valley as a destination for high-end weddings, private parties and corporate events, and to provide a network of resources to destination brides and grooms with one-stop access to Coachella Valley wedding and event vendors.
The mission of The Wedding Warriors organization is to educate those interested in the wedding/special events industry, build strong relationships with related business people and give back to the community.
With new technology and fresh business paradigms, business contacts are developing more meaningful working relationships rather than idly passing business cards. Mr. Goodman saw that the growing community of Coachella valley event/wedding professionals needed to be nurtured and encouraged. This is how the Wedding Warriors organization was born. Now two years later, Wedding Warrior mixers have brought together thousands of people; both vendors and brides alike who are benefiting from this dynamic membership of wedding and event professionals.
Members participate in monthly mixers, help with group contests like 2012’s “Dream Wedding” and “Teenage Dream Quinceanera,” and attend industry lectures and continuing education events.
Wedding Warriors also stays involved with the Coachella Valley community by supporting charities such as Martha’s Village, Palm Springs Animal Shelter and The Narrow Door.
