Last year’s gala was held on May 16, 2017 at The Beverly Hilton with nearly 700 supporters and friends of CASA of Los Angeles who came to support us. We were delighted to honor Mary Beth Evans, Emmy Award winning TV actress and CASA volunteer, Freeform’s “The Fosters” and SHARE, Inc. with special recognition to our former CASA of Los Angeles’ Chief Executive Officer, Dilys Tosteson Garcia – all for their contributions in raising awareness in child welfare and the foster care system.

Comedian and Daily Show correspondent, Al Madrigal opened up the evening. Guests also enjoyed a silent auction, live auction, dinner and a comedy performance by legendary comedian Dana Carvey.
