More than 140 supporters of Friends Without A Border turned out on May 23 for our Los Angeles Event.
The event raised nearly $100,000. Proceeds help finance operations of LFHC.
Actor John Cho charmed the audience as the emcee and magician Michael Tetro provided the slight-of-hand in keeping with the event’s theme of “The Magic of Caring.”
Dr. Greg Thompson, former LFHC medical director, told the audience the touching story about the treatment of Baby Manner, the hospital’s first successful treament of an infant born with gastroschisis. And the event included a special appearance by Kazumi Akao, director of the Outreach Program at LFHC, who is featured in the video “Story of Thongsy,” which was produced by Friends Without A Border.
