Los Angeles Benefit: 2007
The Adoption Institute hosted a fabulous fundraiser in Los Angeles on Oct. 25, 2007 with scores of supporters attending an enjoyable, enlightening and delicious (great food!) evening at a beautiful Beverly Hills home. Ticket sales, corporate sponsorships and silent auction items raised more than $60,000 for the Institute, and all expenses for the event were covered by our generous hosts, Peter Levine and Eric Mathre.
Corporate sponsors included the Creative Artists Agency; the law firm of Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren & Richman, L.L.P.; City National Bank; and major studios and production companies including Universal, Sony, Kennedy/Marshall, and Disney. Corporate sponsors are being recognized in a full-page (and fully donated) ad in Variety Magazine. The benefit committee for the event included many celebrities in the entertainment industry concerned with improving adoption, including actors Sara Jessica Parker, Zooey Deschanel, Bette Midler, Helen Hunt, and Rita Wilson.
