Starry Starry Night

Voices for Children (VFC) held their signature event, Starry Starry Night, in September at the Sahm Estate. The event raised net proceeds of more than $1.16 million in support of VFC and its volunteer Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program. With the funds raised, VFC will be able to provide a CASA volunteer for more than 450 abused, abandoned, or neglected children in San Diego County for an entire year. Reflecting on the 15th anniversary of Starry Starry Night, VFC President/CEO Sharon M. Lawrence, Esq., thanked all of the evening’s supporters for their generosity, “This year’s Starry Starry Night was a milestone in so many ways. In its 15th year, the event raised record support for our CASA program. We are so grateful to our Starry Starry Night chairs, Lany and Alex Zikakis, and to all the donors whose generosity will make it possible for Voices for Children to reach its goal of serving 3,200 children in San Diego County this year.” Visit for more information, including a full list of sponsors and underwriters.
