Talk of the Town

| March 17, 2015 | Parties

They donned artful Venetian masks and glamorous gowns and suits, and gathered for a masquerade of majestic proportions—Boys Town California’s Night of Hope at the Montage Laguna Beach. Board member Adam Miller (who sported a look reminiscent of the Phantom of the Opera), Executive Director Lawren Ramos and 200 other incognito attendees enjoyed everything from performances put on by aerial dancers and contortionists to cuisine and cocktails created by the resort’s talented culinary team. They also listened as Azahel Toledo, an alum of the nonprofit’s residential Family Homes program, shed light on his experiences. “If it weren’t for Boys Town,” he said, “I would be living on the streets, if not dead.” His words underscored the organization’s mission to help underserved children and families in SoCal, and the more than $135,000 total unveiled a final facet of hope. –Photos by Katya Williams Photography
