Celebramos May 5th Event

Our event on May 5th, was a great success and a true celebration of the impact of Para Los Niños on the children, youth, and families we serve. Thank you to all who attended, supported, and shared their own stories of joy and perseverance!

The virtual happy hour included highlights from PLN staff and families, and a cocktail/mocktail creation with the great chefs, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, of Too Hot Tamales, Border Grill and SOCALO, and so much more! If you missed the show, or want to revisit the stories, take a look below.

We raised over $170,000 to continue our work to education children, youth, and families while providing wrapround support for our communities to thrive.
