“The Sonoran Palm Springs is your fully COVID era compliant oasis in the Desert, right in the heart of Palm Springs,” said Khawam. “We are looking forward to carefully and safely moving into this new era of live events. The Sonoran Palm Springs which opened to great fanfare last year just before COVID overtook us, is an ideal spot for socially distant but fabulously produced events. We look forward to fulfilling our place as a popular Palm Springs gathering spot and destination. Plus, every one of our LUNAR experiences will benefit a good cause or local charity. We are part of the community, and want to give back to it, especially people who have been so financially impacted by the pandemic and its economic fallout.”
