Superheroes took flight on Saturday, February 22 in Pasadena to combat human trafficking and provide help to youths and young adults in-crisis, at risk, homeless or in foster care. Founder & Board Chair Donna Pierson, along with the Foundation’s volunteers that include local women, put on the event with the help of many event sponsors. Paul Rusnak was the honorary chair of the benefit which featured an super cocktail reception with wine provided by San Antonio Winery, live music, auction and dinner served by Bistro 45.
GIVE – MENTOR – LOVE is a foundation of volunteers serving LA County youths and young adults in-crisis, at risk, homeless or in foster care, and victims of Human Trafficking. They GIVE urgently needed basic survival items and fund ongoing needs for these victims; MENTOR those rescued and in-crisis; and LOVE each victim unconditionally so they can move beyond the self-hate and humiliation they suffer every day. The Foundation partners with the LA County Bureau of Specialized Response Services for Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC), Foster Girls of Victor Treatment Centers and Learning Works.
