Thank You!

What an incredible night! Thank you for joining us at CASA/LA’s 9th Annual Evening to Foster Dreams gala on May 13 hosted by Ashley and Topher Grace. We were proud to be able to honor our community partners and child advocates, the late Honorable Peter Giannini, Jacqueline Dolan, Erin Foster and Larry Gilson of Focusing Philanthropy.
Together we raised over $600,000 so that we can continue to support more children and youth in LA County’s child welfare system with our advocacy. We are humbled by your generosity.
Thank you to Shana Race, Ike Barinholtz, Dana Daniels and Kevin Jordan for kicking the evening off with CASA/LA Cocktails, magic and laughs, and Katharine McPhee Foster and David Foster, and Julie Mintz with Moby for beautiful music, as well as Melanie Buttarazzi of Fostering Dreams Project for a stunning performance. Special thanks to our dunkees Ed Nahmias, Lynne Gabriel, Wende Julien, Sam Rubin and Olivia de Bortoli for taking the plunge all in support of our important work for the children in our community!
