Annual gala will raise funds to support children in foster care in San Diego County
Voices for Children along with Honorary Chairs Hanna and Mark Gleiberman will host a spectacular evening under the stars to support children living in San Diego County foster care and the life-changing advocacy of Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers. The annual Starry Starry Night gala will take place on Thursday, October 20, 2022, at the breathtaking Rady Shell at Jacobs Park.
Emceed by CBS 8’s Marcella Lee, the event will feature a cocktail reception, music, and performances by the San Diego Children’s Choir and Mainly Mozart Youth Orchestra.

Founded in 1980, Voices for Children transforms the lives of children in foster care by providing them with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). These volunteers – trained and supported by Voices for Children – advocate for youth in court, school, medical settings, and more to ensure their needs are met. Over time, a CASA often becomes the most consistent adult in the life of a child in foster care.
“Starry Starry Night is an evening where our community can come together to celebrate and show support as we raise funds for some of San Diego’s most vulnerable youth. We look forward to honoring the thousands of volunteers and supporters who help us with our special mission to provide a Court Appointed Special Advocate to every child in foster care who needs one,” said Voices for Children’s president and CEO, Kelly Capen Douglas, Esq.
“Over the last decade, we, along with our firm MG Properties, have been honored to support Voices for Children and the outstanding contributions they have made to help foster children in San Diego. We are committed to the impact that consistent, kind, and trustworthy Court Appointed Special Advocates provide to children navigating an overwhelming and complex court system. We are inspired and touched by the admirable dedication of Voices for Children and the noble volunteer CASAs they support.” – Hanna and Mark Gleiberman
