La Cañada Presbyterian Church’s Parent Education Gala, held earlier this year, helped raise $72,000 for LCPC ministry partner FosterAll. The event celebrated the Parent Education program, showing gratitude for its team and supporters, as well as highlighting L.A.’s foster care crisis. The event’s total fundraising haul for both Parent Ed and FosterAll combined was more than $150,000.
“Last December, the Parent Education team started praying the powerful verse from Malachi 3:10 asking God to ‘open the floodgates’ for the 2020 gala: ‘Loving Mercy, Restoring Lives,’” according to an event spokesperson. “Those prayers were heard, and the gala was a miraculous success. Because of the generosity of the attendees, Parent Education was able to help raise more than $72,000 for FosterAll (formerly known as Child S.H.A.R.E.). The mission of FosterAll is to recruit prospective foster parents from faith communities and provide ongoing support to these heroic families, so they can provide safe and loving homes for the thousands of children who have been abused and neglected. They guide parents through successful foster/adopt journeys and create a community of support not only for the children but for the whole family as well.”
