An abiding commitment to the communities we serve.
Westfield and its shopping centers are only successful to the extent that we are able to serve our shoppers and our communities.
An important part of this civic commitment is Westfield’s longstanding philanthropic activity in local communities and across the nation.
One of Westfield’s most rewarding partnerships has been with Special Olympics.
For the past 13 years, Westfield has been a founding sponsor of Pier del Sol, Special Olympics Southern California’s biggest annual fundraiser.
During this time, Westfield has helped raise over $4 million for this event and cause.
This year’s Pier del Sol event takes place on Sunday, 4 October 2009 at 10:00 am. The event is located at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, California.
Pier del Sol is a day of fun and family activity. Attendees enjoy gourmet brunch from some of L.A.’s finest restaurants, arts & crafts, amusement park rides and game booths, a great silent auction and more!
The event is attended by the athletes in the local Special Olympics chapters, supporters of Special Olympics Southern California, the general public, celebrities and sponsors.
All proceeds from Pier del Sol directly benefit the 13,000+ athletes served by Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC).
To support Special Olympics Southern California or take part in Pier del Sol 2009, please see the Pier del Sol website.
