The Joslyn Center hosted its 12th annual The Joslyn in Bloom Fashion Show Luncheon on Wednesday. It's the first time since the start of the pandemic that the event has been held.
It all took place at the Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa in Rancho Mirage. There was a champagne reception, silent auction, wine pull, 3-course luncheon, and fashion show curated by Susan Stein Style.

The show is benefiting the programs and services of The Joslyn Center.
"This is important. It's one of our major fundraising events and it helps support the programs and services at the Johnson Center and now coming out of COVID We're all just getting started back up. So we're really glad to see this level of enthusiasm for this event," said Jack Newby, executive director of the Joslyn Center.
The event also honored Desert Healthcare District & Foundation with the Merritt and Penny Joslyn Award in recognition of the District and Foundation’s generous support of local non-profits over several decades.
