Elites Raise Over $4K In The Rain During Yelp’s Wild West Badge Day!

San Gabriel Elites took badge day to a whole new level with a special western themed party at Hurst Ranch in West Covina! From Stetson hats to chaps, flannel and everything else in between, attendees explored the venue’s beautiful grounds in their cowboy inspired getups while raising over $4k for the organization’s educational programming throughout the afternoon.

Nobody left hungry – over 25 local food and drink vendors were on hand serving up tasty vittles in the form of tacos, BBQ, hot dogs, desserts, adult bevvies and more! In between photo snaps and snacks, guests got their hands dirty (and sticky!) with special succulent planting and DIY s’mores creation stations, too!

You can’t have a proper hoedown without live entertainment! DJ Lisa Lush, Sarah Lightman and Shotgun Jefferson performed a variety of sets that caused head bobbing, knee slapping, hootin’, hollerin’ and even a little line dancing while the sounds of rain fell in sync with all of the amazing tunes.
