5TH ANNUAL EVENING TO FOSTER DREAMS GALA SET FOR MAY 16, 2017 AT THE BEVERLY HILTON

CASA/LA’s 5th Annual Evening to Foster Dreams will be held on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at the Beverly Hilton.  The gala promises to be a heartfelt and fun evening, with an extraordinary moving program, as we honor our community partners who have committed to helping abused and neglected children in foster care in Los Angeles County.

Last year, we honored Judge Michael Nash (retired), CASA Board Chair James M. Rishwain, and Mario Lopez.  Attended by 850 guests, the gala was an astounding success raising over $1.25 million for CASA/LA programs benefiting foster children in Los Angeles County!
