A simple “Thank You” seems hardly adequate to convey the gratitude we feel for your wonderful participation and support of our gala event “Hold em or Fold em”. Without people like you we could not provide nursing scholarships here in the Coachella Valley. The entire Palm Desert Woman’s Club organization thanks you again for your contributions.
Charlene Gould, President, Palm Desert Woman’s Club

Christy Jones is an amazing partner to work with at our Olive Crest and other charitable events, as she brings so much to the party! Her items are “one of a kind” finds and those you do not see everywhere. She creates excitement and energy in the room with her beautifully displayed items, that I call the “Christy Jones Collection”, as they are just that! Her company name Gifts that Give Back, is exactly as it states, as our guests buy multiples of the items and many are given as gifts. The gift the Organization receives, is the opportunity to work with such an honest and professional individual, that cares about your charity as much as you do!

For the past few years I have worked hand in hand with Christy’s company to assist us with product selection and at many of our events. At no time has she failed me! She is knowledgeable about her products, returns messages right away, is always on time, pays attention to every detail and creates eye catching displays which entice all your guest to make purchases.
My first engagement with Christy was with our President’s Gala, a black tie formal dinner for over 400 which included top executives, CEO’s, Senior Vice President’s , etc from the food industry: Anheuser Busch, Von’s, Ralph’s, Bristol Farms, Gelson’s, Niagara, Coco-Cola , etc.The feedback and results from the products Christy recommended and displayed were phenomenon compared to our previous events. It is through the use of Christy’s service we have been able to transform our events and TRIPLE our sales which, as you know is a huge benefit for a non-profit organization.
We have had Christy back several times since our first engagement and each time our guests enjoy the variety she has to offer.
Christy would be an asset to any event you are planning. She has always displayed a high degree of integrity, professionalism, responsibility and attention to detail. I am happy to give my wholehearted endorsement!
