20th Annual Families Matter Benefit and Celebration
Please join us for the 20th annual Families Matter Benefit and Celebration!
Thursday, June 1, 2017
6523 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Honoring Julie Berger, SVP, Initiative Media
The Families Matter Benefit and Celebration is the signature fundraising event for Friends of the Family, providing critical support for the important work of the organization. The evening will feature an exciting silent auction, hosted bar, sumptuous dinner, sparkling comedy and musical entertainment, and the presentation of some very special awards. This event to be held this year at Boulevard 3, one of LA's most beautiful and must-see venues, always earns rave reviews for providing a fun-filled, gracious and inspiring night and often is sold out.
This year the 2017 Founders Award will be presented to Julie Berger in recognition of her steadfast commitment to Friends of the Family and other causes that benefit children and families in our community. In 2011, Julie leveraged her musical background and media savvy to persuade her company, Initiative Media, to sponsor a concert event called Initiative Rocks that raised over $150,000 in support of Friends of the Family. Since then she has been a tireless supporter and advocate for the agency. Along with her wife, Sara, as a parent of 8-year-old triplets, Julie understands the challenges that come with the important work of raising children and is determined to do all she can to ensure that struggling families get the support they need to give their children a fair shot at life.
Supporting FOF gives us all the opportunity to impact critical global issues including poverty, violence, and equity right here in our own city. Given the uncertainty of our times, this support has never been more critical. Please consider being a special part of this event by purchasing a sponsorship which includes a table or premium tickets. Sponsorships received by April 13 will be recognized in the invitation which will be mailed in late April.
