The League for Children

About This Event

The League for Children is an Auxiliary of Children’s Bureau founded in 1986 by Millie O’Green and Lois Linkletter to help prevent abuse of under privileged children.

All proceeds from our Gala directly benefit the prevention programs of Children’s Bureau at their several Southern California locations. The League for Children has proudly supported Children’s Bureau for 34 years and has raised more than $3 million in charitable funds. The world has changed in many ways over the past few months, and our generosity is needed now more than ever. While we are unable to celebrate in person this year, please join us as we continue to uplift Children’s Bureau’s mission to protect vulnerable children through prevention, treatment and advocacy.

We invite you to join us in contributing any amount you wish. Together we will make a difference.
