Organizers report that $1.25 million was raised at the 11th annual Voices for Children’s Starry Starry Night gala on Sept. 28, 2013 at Rancho Valencia Resort. The funds will be used to provide more than 400 more foster children with CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates). These volunteers work directly with the children, speaking on their behalf in the courtroom and community. A substantial amount of the funds will be matched by a donor, who has pledged to match (dollar for dollar) all gifts from new donors and increased gifts from current donors, up to $1 million. This challenge is in effect through June 2014. Learn more at speakupnow.org
