On June 22, 2017, The L.A. Trust for Children’s Health hosted its first Summer Solstice Garden Party fundraiser held at Traxx Restaurant in the historic Los Angeles Union Station. It was nothing short of a success. We would like to thank our sponsors, board members, and LAUSD for their continued support of The L.A Trust.
We’d also like to thank Social Change PR for partnering with us in creating a beautiful evening for our guests.
This year, we awarded Kaiser Permanente with the Patron Award, Davis Wright Tremaine with the Defender Award, and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Angela Padilla with the Champions Award. These individuals and companies were awarded based on their advocacy for school-based health and student wellness.
We also heard from Evelyn Boswell, Wendy Siguenza, and Irma Rose, three young women who gave first-hand accounts of their experiences with The L.A. Trust for Children’s Health. Moving the audience to tears, these young women told stories of their past, and how with the help of The L.A. Trust, they are forging ahead to build brighter futures.
