Orange County Chapter of Childhelp to hold fall gala on October 21

The Orange County Chapter of Childhelp will hold their “P.S. - I Love You!” gala on Saturday, Oct. 21, at Newport Beach Country Club from 6-11 p.m. Event committee members will transform the ballroom into a glamorous Palm Springs-themed venue, when Hollywood A-listers made their way to Palm Springs. Think of a ‘50s/‘60s kaftans and cocktails pool party for some inspiration. It will be an evening to remember with cocktails, dinner and dancing, silent and live auctions, and casino-style gambling, all to raise money toward stopping child abuse and neglect, and to support the children under Childhelp’s care.

They will be honoring their own Kristen James with the Benevolent Heart Award. James embodies the meaning of benevolence. As a member of Childhelp, she is continuously thinking of ways to spread the word and raise funds for the organization. James donates a portion of sales from her Vintage shop, Good Bye James and spearheaded the Wings Program for children to volunteer and raise funds for Childhelp.

Event Sponsors include Jacquie & Michael Casey.

Tickets are $250 per person. For more information on sponsorships, donations or underwriting and to purchase tickets, visit www.bidpal.net/childhelpocfallgala2023.
