"In Los Angeles County, alone, there are over 35,000 children receiving child welfare services," says social worker, William Wong. "This event reaches far beyond the Hollywood 'glitz' and into the heart and soul. All of the guests and Sponsors were extremely generous! We have formed new relationships which extend beyond the event and, additionally, Bergman invites two foster children to join in on the festivities and experience what it felt like to be treated as a VIP -- the love from the sponsors was tremendous!" added Wong.
