Promises2Kids Dream On Concert Gala was held June 12 at the La Jolla estate home of Joan Waitt. The event featured a live private concert by Grammy-nominated recording artists STYX. The event benefits Promises2Kids, a nonprofit dedicated to creating a brighter future for foster children. This past year, Promises2Kids provided support to the 1,000 children cared for by the county’s emergency shelter, The Polinsky Children’s Center; reunited 450 foster children with their brothers and sisters through Camp Connect; supported over 100 former foster youth in their dreams of higher education through Promises’ Guardian Scholars; provided financial support for activities such as sports equipment, music classes, a class photo, or application fees for college. The event also featured a Champagne Reception, an elegant seated dinner provided by Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille, artfully crafted cocktails, a Dream Maker Circle VIP Scotch Lounge and silent and live auction.
