Voices for Children President’s Circle event


A President’s Circle event held was held July 12 for Voices for Children’s major donors. The cocktail reception took place at the Carmel Valley residence of Gina and Ray Ellis. Gina is a member of Voices for Children’s Board of Directors. Remarks were made by The Honorable Kenneth J. Medel and former foster youth Anthony.

Judge Medel spoke about the foster care system in San Diego County and Anthony talked about the positive difference having a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) made in his life.

Voices for Children provides foster children with CASA volunteers (Court Appointed Special Advocates), who work directly with foster children and speak on their behalf in the courtroom, classroom and community. For more information, visit
