The night was truly a reflection of our beliefs: that we fight hard, but love harder! The event included amazing tributes to the work we have done for the last 20 years supporting parents to speak truth to power. We were fortunate to have Asm Tony Thurmond and Sen Nancy Skinner speak and present certificates; honored to recognize Maria Luz Torre, Kim Kruckel (surprise!); and the Child Care Law Center; and proud to recognize our inaugural Patty Siegel Memorial Awards to Lourdes Alarcon and Jessica Wood.
We are looking forward to working with all of our partners to continue to move this work forward. The funds raised at the event will make sure parents feel empowered to be their children’s best advocate and are seen as more than storytellers, but as policy changers! Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and those who purchased raffle tickets, balloons, or made a pledge during the fundraising pitch, these combined efforts helped us net just over $50,000!
