Adopt a Family Foundation fundraiser


Adopt a Family Foundation’s annual fundraiser was held recently at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park.

Attendees enjoyed a silent auction, dinner and music by San Diegan vocalist Susie Lotzof and guitarist Albert Mora.

Carine Chitayat, co-founder of the foundation, explained the mission of the foundation, which is to adopt a family once a year in Israel who have been affected by terrorism.

These families are provided with emotional and financial support.

To date, the foundation has adopted 12 families.

An emotional video was shown featuring some of the recipients of the foundation, expressing their gratitude for the love, care and support that they receive on a weekly basis.

The event concluded with the featured entertainment of the evening, the Yuval Ron Ensemble, which is an internationally-renowned group of singers, musicians and dancers.
