Thank You!

On April 20th, CASA of Los Angeles’ 11th Annual Reimagine Gala took place at the stunning Beverly Hilton Hotel, where close to 700 guests gathered to support our advocacy programs for children and families impacted by the child welfare system. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors, our wonderful host, Christine Devine, and exceptional honorees – LA Mayor Karen Bass, The Los Angeles Chargers, Samuel Herod, Corey and Anna Linsley, The RightWay Foundation, Butterfly’s Haven, and My Tribe Housing. We are particularly grateful to our wonderful performers, Mikol, Inner City Youth Orchestra and White Hall Arts Academy.

The event was a great success, having raised over $1 million in which all funds will continue to support CASA/LA’s vital work, which includes training and supporting community volunteers in advancing the welfare of children in foster care through effective advocacy.

We extend our sincerest appreciation to all the attendees, volunteers, and donors whose support helped make this event possible. We are already looking forward to next year’s gala!
