Five Acres held a spectacular evening in support of vulnerable children at their Desert Oasis Gala in Pasadena. Hosted at the home of Jennifer and Shawn McCreight, this year’s event spotlighted the Southern California we call home and included a cocktail reception, gourmet meal, live DJ, tempting auction items and special touches like the “5A Lemonade Stand” with unique raffle prizes.

The gala followed on the heels of National Foster Care Month in May, with more than 20,000 children in Los Angeles alone in need of loving, permanent families. All proceeds from the evening will fund Five Acres’ critical work in foster care, adoption and mental/behavioral health services for more than 9,700 kids and families served annually by the nonprofit.

Guests at Desert Oasis had a chance to win a chance to see more of the world with the fantastic live auction items including stays in Cabo San Lucas, Mammoth, Paris and even a private yacht trip in Ventura.

Five Acres is a child and family service agency ensuring every child has a safe, healthy and permanent family solution through advocacy, prevention and evidence-based services. Established as an orphanage in 1888, today Five Acres offers community-based counseling and support services, intensive residential care for foster youth and foster care and adoption services. Currently, Five Acres serves more than 9,700 children and their families across five counties.
