What we’re about
The Sunshine Gals is a social group of fun-loving and whimsical Gals who celebrate life with a positive outlook and sunny disposition...and lots of love and laughter. We enjoy dining out, movies, the arts, home & garden tours, tea parties, potlucks, plays & performances, day trips, and much more. We're always open to new experiences and adventures.
Since our beginning in 2009, The Sunshine Gals have attracted some of the kindest & most compassionate ladies around. Many who have made lifelong friends! Each of our Sunshine Gals brings something special to our group. We are proud to be a society of unique women from all walks of life. The common bond that Sunshine Gals have is the desire to surround ourselves with joyful, authentic people who have a zest for life and a great sense of humor. Our group spreads sunshine wherever we go!
The Sunshine Gals is my gift to you. Since moving out of Orange County to Palm Springs, I, Candy, have stepped down as the sole organizer and the group is now run by Doris Stephens who has volunteered to be Organizer and Event Organizer. Contact her if you would like to be one of our Event Hosts and to host an event. This is a great way to plan something that YOU would like to do. You will have access to our calendar and can host events any time you wish. I will always be a part of our group as founder.
I would like to send a special thank you to Doris for continuing to keep our group active by being our loyal sponser, event and main organizer. We all thank you for your commitment and love for our group. The success of this group is because of her dedication and involvement. We all thank you!
All of our events are completely voluntary. Only YES RSVP's are ever needed, but PLEASE UPDATE your RSVP if your plans change, and cannot attend after all.
NO SHOW POLICY: Members who RSVP "Yes" for an event need to change their RSVP to "No" if their plans change and they cannot attend the event. Upon the 3rd no show, a member will be removed from the group. This is just one example of why RSVPs should be tendered with positive intentions on attending and cancelled if plans have changed. Some upcoming events require exact counts at least 24 hours prior to the event and the penalty for falling short of this will cost the Organizer an out of pocket expense for no shows from the venue we have reserved space for. Thank you for understanding.
Our group colors are yellow and pink. You will find many of the Gals wearing our colors to make us easier to spot at our events and to show our Sunshine Gals spirit. We welcome you to show your spirit too... it adds to the fun and whimsy of our group. Wearing just one yellow/pink accessory counts! It's completely optional!
I am very proud of the enthusiasm of our group and with its growth and progress. I am grateful for the positive and genuine women who continue to make The Sunshine Gals what it is today... BEAUTIFUL.
