Friendship best begins from common goals––shared interests and desires can turn fleeting acquaintances into lifelong friendships, and there’s no goal more noble than helping your community by dedicating time to local charities.
It’s a love for philanthropy that brought Sophia Alsadek, Aimee Fuller, Carrie Woodland, Michelle Mirandon and Sarah Sleeper together. Each one of these five prolific women is involved in numerous charities, dedicating their time and energy towards helping others. Through working for the betterment of their community, they found passion, purpose and, most importantly, each other.
Sophia Alsadek is on the board of Trojan League Associates of San Diego County, which promotes the University of Southern California and raises funds for scholarships. Alsadek is also on the board of Rady Children’s Hospital, Del Mar Auxiliary and Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club. In addition to being on the board of three prestigious charities, Alsadek is a member of Library Guild Rancho Santa Fe, Country Friends and Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund.
Couture hat and jewelry designer Aimee Fuller has been on the board of directors for many philanthropic organizations around the country. Most recently, Fuller acted as fashion chair for the ATLANTIS fashion show and luncheon, benefiting the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County. She was recently named one of Leonard Simpson/Fashion Forward’s Ten Best Dressed honorees for 2017, which promotes community involvement; the gala celebrating the honorees is November 30th in San Diego. Locally, Fuller supports Actors and Others for Animals, The Doris A. Howell Foundation, Soroptimist International, Jeans for Justice, The Country Friends, The Del Mar Auxiliary of Rady Children’s Hospital, Mary Birch Hospital for Women and Children, to name a few.
