Voices for Children (VFC) will hold their 15th Annual Starry Starry Night on Saturday, Sept. 9 at Del Dios Ranch. All event proceeds will benefit VFC, a nonprofit organization which transforms the lives of children in foster care by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). CASAs offer a sense of stability and advocate for foster children in the courtroom, at school, and in the community.

Starry Starry Night is considered one of San Diego’s premier fundraising events. The annual gala has grown from an intimate event in a private home to one of our community’s most anticipated events, grossing more than $1 million in each of the past five years. A fitting venue, Del Dios Ranch in Rancho Santa Fe boasts the magnificent Sahm Estate, home to the late Ramona and Roland Sahm.

Of serving as event chairs, Lany and Alex Zikakis shared, “We are honored to carry forward the legacy of celebration and generosity of Starry Starry Night. The gala will make it possible for Voices for Children to serve more than 3,200 foster children in San Diego County through the advocacy of more than 1,500 CASA volunteers.” For more information visit www.speakupnow.org.
