Last Saturday, Arnold Schwarzenegger welcomed 150 guests to his Los Angeles home for the seventh annual Arnold Schwarzenegger - Westime Charity Night. Guests were gathered to take part in a charity auction benefitting Schwarzenegger's After-School All-Stars (ASAS) charity.  Our partner retailer Westime sponsored the Western-themed event. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his After-School All-Stars
I started After-School All-Stars because I saw the need for programs to keep our kids safe and learning between 3 and 6 pm, I couldn’t be prouder about how we’ve grown to be a premier program provider recognized as the best in the business –– but we couldn’t have done that without a lot of generosity. I am so thankful to John Simonian, Westime, and the many fantastic and generous donors and partners that came to give back and support our students. You’re the wind beneath their wings that allows them to soar! Arnold Schwarzenegger
The charity auction hosted by Matt Iseman and Tom Arnold

Winning auction bidders went home with priceless experiences, memorabilia, and stunning art from world-renowned National Geographic photographers. Other contributing artists included Fabian Perez, Niclas Castello, Alexander Hoeller, Jin-Woo Prensena, Fidia Falaschetti, Arthur Williams, Danielle Weber, Joe Everson, Greg Williams, Brady Matthews, Nick Moss, and Francesco Clemente. By the end of the night, all eyes were on the incredible watches and jewelry donated by Westime’s partners:  Richard Mille, Audemars Piguet, Carl F. Bucherer, Hublot, Messika, Bulgari, Grand Seiko, Blancpain, Ulysse Nardin, and Breitling

John Simonian and Arnold Schwarzenegger
Seven years ago, we wanted to create a really fun, laid-back Westime event with Arnold, in his home, as a new fundraiser supporting the charity he founded. Every year, the event has brought in more money for charity while keeping its relaxed style. This year was the most successful ever, and a real testament to everyone's belief –– from Arnold to the ASAS staff, to guests and Westime friends who donate –– that this organization is making a vital difference in the lives of kids throughout the country John Simonian, Founder - Westime

Through the unwavering commitment of Schwarzenegger and Westime, this annual event has raised $12.8 million over the last seven years, to support free, comprehensive afterschool programs for low-income, and underserved students across the nation during the hours of 3-6pm.
