MEMORIES ARE MADE AROUND THE TABLE 

Thanksgiving CelebrationOn November 16, Children’s Bureau hosted its 9th Annual Thanksgiving Celebration at Magnolia Place Family Center. Seventy-five families gathered for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner and were treated to entertainment by magicians and Elsa characters. Families also received a $50.00 gift card from Ralph’s Grocery Store. This event was made possible thanks to the generosity of LA Kids Dinner Program and Lana & Richard Rizika. We’d also like to extend a warm thank you to our volunteers from Laz Parking, Lockton Insurance Brokers, Global Initiatives Alliance, Marymount High School, South East High School, USC, as well as Bryan Boghosian, LA Board of Trustees member.
