Kindness Kures Fall Benefit Spotlights Local Anti-Bullying Efforts

Growing up, I experienced bullying that left scars, which cannot be seen. It took years (decades) for me to finally get to a place where I could talk about it, and now, a place where I can help drive awareness for anti-bullying through Kindness Kures.

The first annual Kindness Kures Fall Benefit featured a wine tasting tournament, where guests where educated and entertained while enjoying and learning about wine. Angeline, Capiaux, and Daou wine were all proud event partners. The winner of the wine tasting tournament won a weekend in a 2020 Karma Revero GT, which was generously provided by Karma Automotive and Karma Newport Beach.

Our Mission

Nationwide, about 20% of students ages 12-18 have experienced bullying, and every day, 160,000 kids skip school because of bullying. Sadly, almost 70% of students believe schools respond poorly to bullying and find adult help infrequent and ineffective. We aim to bring awareness to the growing epidemic of bullying and support anti-bullying programs in our local schools. Proceeds from the fall benefit supported the Ability Awareness Project, which provides anti-bullying education and presentations for parents, educators, and students in Orange County. AAP strives not only to identify and put a stop to all types of bullying, but also move towards developing our next generation of leaders and peacemakers.
