LOS ANGELES — With a sold-out event, the Dream Center’s annual Fostering Hope Women’s Luncheon hopes to gather ongoing support throughout Greater Los Angeles for the region’s most vulnerable children. This private reception sponsored by Jonathon D. Fischer Foundation includes lunch, entertainment, inspiring messages from women in leadership and a live auction to support the efforts of the Dream Center.
“Loving, hardworking moms are literally watching their children go into Foster Care because of a lack of basic necessities such as a bed or dining table,” says Christine Avanti-Fischer, who will keynote the event. “The Dream Center will stand in the gap and supply those needs in order to keep healthy families together. I have been honored to host and sponsor the Fostering Hope Luncheon for the past five years in a row, and we hope that this program will become an anchor in Los Angeles’ philanthropic priorities. We must help these children, now.”
All proceeds will directly benefit the Dream Center’s Foster Care Intervention Program, just one of their many outreach programs that partners with the Department of Children and Family Services to prevent families from being separated in Los Angeles. They provide furniture, food, clothing, appliances and other basic items needed to allow parents to retain or regain custody of their children.
Although the event is sold-out, interested supporters can donate to the foundation here, whether or not they attend.
