Dann Foley Inc

For more than 25 years I have built a reputation for great style, taste and quality through my namesake firm DANN Inc. I began working on my own as an extra credit project my senior year of school at Drexel University, Nesbitt College of Design in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have honed my craft with clients across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

After years of creating custom items for client’s homes, the Dann Foley Lifestyle brand was a natural extension of those efforts. I bring a unique global perspective to my designs through years of international clientele, extensive travel and a passion for all things beautiful. For me the idea of home goes well beyond the acquiring of the things, it is a desire to share my idea of “Living Well” with everyone I meet.

I have used the Lifestyle Design approach when creating residences, commercial properties, products, styling and special event design. A favorite motto of mine is, any style, anywhere, at any time. I deliver what people ask for but in a way they dreamed possible and do it all with what everyone seems to refer to as my boundless energy and infectious laughter.

From the start I envisioned the Dann Foley Liflestyle (DFL) brand to be high style with my signature 3 A’s of Design… Accessible, Available and Affordable. The DFL licensing program was never meant to be just a name on a label. I design every product myself. Yet, I still consider each license a partnership between the manufacturer and me. The process is a true design collaboration involving all phases from the factory to marketing, to ensure I offer a product that is well made, accessible and beautiful. I have never wanted to create product for a lofty few to sing my praises, I create product that will appeal to buyers and consumers alike.

I have always recognized the power of television as the most useful tool in marketing my work and my brand. Shows like NBC’s American Dream Builders and Showtime’s The Real L Word have given me the opportunity to prove to that I can entertain and inspire viewers about the “Dann Brand.”

In the only 2 years since the Dann Foley Lifestyle licensing programs officially launched (which coincided with the premier of American Dream Builders) I have garnered both industry attention and record sales of some of my products, earning me 5 Platinum and Gold ADEX, Excellence in Design Awards, a Pinnacle Award nomination and, my most coveted nomination to date, the ARTS Award nomination in the product design category.

By combining style, sophistication and my 3 A’s of product design I am offering buyers and consumers alike more than just product, I am offering them a chance to create their own personalized style. My newest bedding lines are a perfect example of how a buyer/consumer can purchase my perfectly curated and coordinated looks for the bed or create their own look by combining my many exclusive patterns, colors and textures into their perfect haven. I am also offering dozens of decorative pillows and shams from the simple to elaborate and gorgeous drapery panels to round out the look for the bedroom or any room of the home.

For more than twenty-five years I have rigorously kept my focus on client satisfaction through uncompromising service. I bring this same work ethic to the DANN FOLEY LIFESTYLE product lines. I am committed to giving people the opportunity to live better, more beautiful and more meaningful lives through the products they live with. People don’t need more things they just need better choices.  I use my God-given personality and wit, combined with a vast knowledge and experience for living well to thrill my clients and keep them coming back…it is those same qualities that I bring to the design table with every product. My lifestyle brand has been a long time in the making because I wanted to get it right…I am here to stay!

Dr. G's Corner
Dr. G and her team completed another very successful year of the Suicide Bullying Prevention Program. With Dr. G’s support, Linda Lechlitner, teacher extraordinaire, met with 17 Peer Educators for 7 weeks of intensive training from August until the end of October. In November the Peer Educators, well prepared to deliver Dr. G’s curriculum, went into every 9 th grade classroom and taught the students the three modules: The Power of Words (developing empathy, encouraging students to be “upstanders” and support their LGBTQ or gender non-conforming classmates); Cyberbullying (what it is and how to stop doing it); and Suicide Prevention (the warning signs, what to do and where to refer). The Peer Educators, who are high school seniors, did an outstanding job teaching the curriculum and being positive role models for the younger students. They received certificates, stipends, and community service credit for participating in the program. Dr. G would like to thank the administrators and teachers at the four Palm Springs USD high schools for their ongoing support of this valuable program.

MISSION, VISION & HISTORY

The LGBTQ Community Center of the Desert (aka “The Center”)

MISSION: Creating vibrant community by helping LGBTQ people along their way.

VISION:    Thriving lesbian, gay,bisexual and transgender people, living authentically in support inclusive communities.

VALUES:    Respect, Excellence, Inclusiveness, Fun, Integrity

The Center creates a vibrant community by helping LGBTQ people along their way, in Coachella Valley and visitors of all ages, totaling nearly 56,000 client visits annually. A thriving, community-based organization, The Center provides a safe and supportive environment for members to enjoy wellness, educational, support and social programming through such programs as The Scott Hines Mental Health Clinic @ The Center (over 2,000 clinical appointments annually), transgender therapy groups, a partnership with Palm Springs Unified School District to offer The Center’s Suicide Prevention and Anti-Bullying curriculum to every ninth-grade student in the district (nearly 2,000 students), public school counseling, The Community Food Bank @ The Center (serving annually over 16,000 family members from ages 1 through 55+), extensive social and recreational offerings, the David Bohnett CyberCenter (a free computer and internet center), a growing volunteer program, and special events in the community. It is the only LGBTQ non-profit community center in Eastern Riverside County. The Center receives broad support from across our desert communities, which includes local municipalities, foundation grants, individual and business memberships, special events, and gifts from its friends in the Coachella Valley who support the LGBTQ community. Several programs provide critical social interaction opportunities for members of the LGBTQ community who are alone, isolated, and for many, living at or below the poverty level.

The Center Board of Directors reflects the diversity of the LGBTQ Community: 50% are women; 7% are people of color; 6 identify themselves as gay; 7, lesbian; and 1, bi; the average age is 56 (median 60), and represent professions such as business, civic involvement, finance, human resources legal, marketing, and mental health.


History
The Prime Timers Foundation was created in 2001 with the purpose of serving the needs of gay seniors, who are often isolated and living at or below the poverty level. Many in this generation lived through rejection, outright discrimination and fear for their safety for just being their authentic selves. They were the trail blazers who, in spite of being ostracized by society, stood up for our rights and created the environment today where we can live openly as LGBTQ people.

Many of the learned fears still exist in this generation and as they age, they become isolated and self-protective. Recognizing this, in 2005 the Foundation created the Golden Rainbow Senior Center, a one-room center that offered a few programs for seniors and a friendly, accepting place to gather. In October, 2011, the board expanded the scope of The Center’s operation to be all inclusive of LGBTQ people regardless of age and changed its name to reflect that expanded mission. We proudly move forward as a place for our entire community as The Center.

All About Love: New Visions by bell hooks

Synopsis
"How can love be an action, not just a feeling? We say we love our children, but are we kind to them? How does even the tiniest lie damage love? How can we move beyond the superficial and trivialized notions of love to embrace the true love we yearn for? How does the narcissism of society keep us from true self-love? Imaginative and original, hooks shows how love heals the wounds we bear as individuals and as a nation. All About Love, written in vivid, provocative, and sensual language, is as much about culture as it is about intimacy. It is bell hooks at her most inspiring. In exploring the ties between love and loss hooks takes on a journey that is sacred and transcendent.

Membership assists in providing no cost/low cost counseling services to over 50 LGBT clients each week and keeps our classes like 50+Fit, yoga, drawing, bridge and dancing at a low cost. In addition, your fees and donations support our youth suicide-prevention and anti-bullying program in the Palm Springs Unified School District. And remember, your membership entitles you to receive discounts on all classes and workshops at The Center.
