General Manager Saks Fifth Avenue,  Beverly Hills 

“Charity is hugely important to Saks, and we execute a number of fundraising and charitable initiatives each year. One in particular is our annual Key to the Cure Campaign, a cause we truly believe in, a campaign that over the course of almost two decades has raised approximately $40 million. This year we are lucky to partner, again, with Stand Up To Cancer as well as have the support of Halle Berry and Christian Louboutin in our fight against cancer.”




Todd Orlich General
Manager, Montage Beverly Hills

“Montage takes an active role in supporting those in need in Los Angeles through Hearts of Montage, our Associate volunteer program. Recent examples include our “Nothin’ But Sand” beach cleanup, work with the Corazon de Vida orphanage and contributions to the LA County Food Bank. We are committed to environmental stewardship, education, and sustainability. Montage is a caring and thoughtful company that fosters happy Associates, which results in memorable guest experiences and a stronger sense of community.”





Brent Polacheck
President, Polacheck’s Jewelers 

“Polacheck’s has a long history of community involvement in the San Fernando Valley and Conejo Valley. A collection of charities and a variety of fundraising programs have been the beneficiaries of Polacheck’s gracious support. We continue to express our gratitude through our heartfelt contributions in every way we can. Whether it’s our presence at the 5K Stop Cancer Run, feeding and passing out toys to the homeless in our Santa hats, or being a strong supporter of the Boys and Girls Club, we strive to not only give back to our community for the greater good, but support our local schools, synagogues, and churches as well.”
