Thank you to all our supporter of our Garden Gala, held Saturday, September 11, 2021 at the historic Virginia Robinson Gardens, Beverly Hills.
Our Garden Gala has come and gone, and we couldn’t have asked for a more inspiring and beautiful evening! It was wonderful to reconnect after a year at home and enjoy each other’s company in a gorgeous outdoor setting. We saluted our front line workers – our staff and caseworkers – and heard powerful stories from our clients. We came together as a community and raised funds for our invaluable programs, and we even danced under the stars to the sounds of Lizzy & The Triggermen.
For those who joined us, thank you for coming out to celebrate resilience and restoration from an unprecedented year. For those who could not attend, your presence was truly missed.
Funds raised directly supports vulnerable children, youth and families, funding the following:
❖ Treatment for children who have suffered abuse and/or neglect
❖ Parent education to prevent school failure and teen pregnancy
❖ Activities to steer boys and girls away from gangs
❖ Home visits from a nurse to ensure healthy mom and baby
❖ Case management to help young parents graduate
❖ Intensive counseling services to address mental health issues
Robinson Gardens Estate was built in 1911 and originally owned by Virginia and Harry Robinson of L.A.’s J. W. Robinson department store fame.
The estate boasts dramatic settings such as the awe-inspiring Australian King Palm Forest, the bucolic Rose Garden and the tranquil Italian Terrace Garden. Robinson Gardens was once the site of lavish Hollywood parties and royalty.
