Fiesta Para Los Niños Gala 2017: A Vibrant Celebration of Service Raising Over $600K for L.A. Children & Families

Our 36th Anniversary Gala was an extraordinary night for us. We celebrated our families’ successes and the passionate people who continue to help build Para Los Niños into the education and social services lighthouse it is today. We were thrilled to have marked this important moment in our history.

Receiving the evening’s top honors included media network Univision-34 Los Angeles (Partner of the Year) and Netflix’s One Day At A Time (Vanguard Award). The show’s lead, Justina Machado, served as our dynamic emcee with L.A. Mayor’s Office Chief of Staff, Ana Guerrero, delivering a powerhouse keynote address on the city’s work and its positive impact on our youth.

A big tremendously heartfelt thanks to our supporters for helping us raise over $600K to help families in need.
A very special thanks to:

  • Tina and Rick Caruso (Presenting Sponsors: $250K)
  • For Motor Co. (Summer School Academy: $50K)
  • Walter Parkes & Laurie MacDonald (Parkes Family Teacher Development Fund: $25K)
