An unforgettable celebration filled with dance and music in the garden at the historic Wilfandel Club.

Finding a place of your own for cultural, educational, and social activities.

This was the motivation for upwardly mobile African American women in Los Angeles in the 1940's as they organized a clubhouse. There was no place for them to meet. Mrs. Fannie Williams, an outstanding entrepreneur and recognized community leader, and Mrs. Della Williams a philanthropist and wife of of Paul Revere Williams, the noted Los Angeles Architect, shared the vision to organize and provide a venue and meeting place for the community.

The Wilfandel Club is Los Angeles personified. It sits at the heart of a very particular experience in L.A and as Heidi Duckler has done for years, she wants to shine a light on what is right in front of you, what is part of the history of Los Angeles.
