Last Friday night, Topson went to the ball game to watch the LA Dodgers take on the Atlanta Braves. After enjoying complimentary Dodger dogs, popcorn, peanuts, nachos, and soda, Topson closed out the night by watching disco themed fireworks light up the LA sky. Thank you to our partners for making such an amazing event possible!
In honor of the days being longer, our skin getting tanner, and our drinks getting colder, we at Topson said, “Hello!” to summer by sporting our favorite beach wear to work. Some of the best memories are made in sunhats and Hawaiian shirts, and this day was no exception!
Thank you to all of those who participated in creating Topson’s first summer ’17 memory!
On Tuesday May 23rd, Topson Downs partnered with the American Red Cross for their annual blood drive!

Rock stars like Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar may have dominated the stage, but Topson’s styles dominated Coachella. It's no secret that the Coachella Music and Arts Festival is largely known for its attendees outfits, both good and bad, and last weekend Topson got a chance to check it out for ourselves.
Who needs celebrity sightings when you have Elwood and Love, Fire sightings!
Last Friday night, Topson took the streets of LA - or more accurately, the skies of LA – to enjoy SkySpace’s jaw-dropping 360° view of the City of Angels. After enjoying the interactive museum, outdoor glass slide, and taking some “double-tap worthy” Instagram photos, Topson continued the party at Takami restaurant for some appetizers and a light cocktail hour.
A big thank-you to our partners for making such a fantastic and memorable night possible!
For over a month, Topson has been conducting an Easter basket drive in partnership with Olive Crest, a shelter for at-risk, abused, and neglected children. After several weeks of collection and advocacy, Topson concluded the Easter basket drive on Monday, April 3rd.

Topson joined thousands of bicyclists, skaters, and pedestrians and took to the streets of Los Angeles and Culver City on Sunday, March 26th. The weather was cool and sunny, the crowds were huge, and there were – of course – all kinds of running, walking, skating, and bicycling.
Thanks to all who participated in this global open streets movement!
Topson slept out on the grounds of LA on Friday, March 24th, to raise awareness and funds for our country's homeless youth population. This event also took place in Anchorage, Atlanta, NYC, Newark, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, and Philadelphia. During our sleep out, we met a very positive and inspirational young man who told us about the heartbreaking struggles of homelessness, and how his life has changed, for the better, through the help and housing provided by Covenant House. We, at Topson, are incredibly proud to hold a partnership with such a dedicated organization.
As of today, Topson has raised $2,035 for Covenant House!
Thank you to everyone who donated!
This Holiday Season Topson Downs worked with Olive Crest and sponsored 29 families! We provided each family with toys, new furnishings and appliances, gift cards, entertainment tickets, food baskets, hygiene supplies, clothing, and more. The partner, along with other Topson employees talked about their amazing, emotional experiences and encouraged anyone who has never done something like this to try it. Thanks again to all who volunteered and made a difference!
Special thanks to Diane Rivas and Katherine Soto, for coordinating!

In August 2016 prolonged rainfall in southern parts of Louisiana resulted in catastrophic flooding that submerged thousands of homes and businesses. The flood has been called the worst US natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012. As of now, 13 deaths have been reported as a result of the flooding. In response to this disaster, Topson Downs has donated $10,000 to the Red Cross relief efforts to help those in need during this difficult time.
Every year "El Presidente" and "El Secretario" battle it out on the baseball diamond. Despite the sun blinding the batters, everyone had such a great time! Team Presidente won fair and square - we had an official umpire calling the plays this year! We also had some delicious tacos for dinner. Topson would like to thank those who participated in the game and also those who came out to cheer for us!
Topson Downs treated employees to its first ever Dodger Day! It was a perfect Friday in Los Angeles evening when team members from each of our locations got together to enjoy food, drinks, camaraderie, and baseball! One of our team members even caught a home run ball! Everybody had so much fun and we cannot wait for the next one!
On June 12, 2016 in Orlando, FL a gunman killed 49 people and wounded another 53 people. It was both the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman and the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history. One of the victims was a friend of one of our own employees. In response to this tragedy, Topson Downs has donated $10,000 to those affected by this brutal attack. This is amazing! If any of you would like to donate, you can do so here.
We recently hosted our first paint night and it was so much fun! We provided the canvas, paint, wine, and appetizers. The TGIM Committee were the hosts and servers for the evening.
