Starry Starry Night, the signature event of Voices for Children (VFC), was held Sept. 29 at the Sahm Estate at Del Dios Ranch. The 16th annual gala grossed $1.5 million in support of Voices for Children and its volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program. With the funds raised through Starry Starry Night, Voices for Children will be able to provide a CASA volunteer to hundreds of abused, abandoned, or neglected children in San Diego County.
A highlight of the event was the premiere of "Dear CASA," a short film produced by Briefcase Studios, in which a foster youth named Josh surprises his volunteer CASA, Tim, with a heartfelt letter of gratitude. Through Josh's own voice, the video reveals how one caring adult can have a lasting impact in a child's life.
