It was truly a special evening at CASA of Los Angeles’ 10th Annual Reimagine Gala as we honored longtime supporter Steve Bloom for his years of service to CASA/LA, Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly Mitchell for her child and family-centered initiatives to ensure low-income families gain access to equitable resources, and Scott Budnick, founder of the Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC) and CEO of One Community, for his work in justice reform.
Attended by 500 guests, the gala raised over $800,000! This support will help us serve more children with intensive one-on-one advocacy.
We kicked off the evening with Ashley & Topher Grace as our returning hosts, followed by a special musical performance by the tap-dancing, award-winning Syncopated Ladies, and spoken word performed by CASA/LA’s Board Member, Johna Rivers. Our CASA story this year featured Estephanie and Sorec, who shared an incredible bond that truly captured the importance of caring and consistent support in a child’s life.
Together with our board of directors, and our incredible gala committee, we thank you for your generous support. You make it possible for us to advocate for children and families impacted by the foster care system.
