There were celebs, celebs and more celebs at Doris Bergman’s Sixth Annual Emmy Style Lounge & Party, held recently at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood.

In the spirit of giving back guests & sponsors donated unwrapped gifts for young adults (ages 13-18) for a Pre-Holiday Gift Drive benefitting ‘Wednesday’s Child’ -- a weekly segment airing on KTTV FOX 11 News, Los Angeles, with Anchor Christine Devine. ‘Wednesday’s Child’ highlights ‘harder to place’ children in the LA County foster care system who are in need of adoptive families. “In Los Angeles County, alone, there are over 35,000 children receiving child welfare services,” says social worker, Professor William Wong. “Gifts and monetary donations to the ‘Wednesday’s Child’ Pre-Holiday Gift Drive has been overwhelming and, most importantly, the event Sponsors and celebrity guests have provided examples to follow -- giving the public permission to embrace our kids. I believe that people are inherently good and want to do good things.”
Bergman always invites two foster children to join in on the festivities and experience what it feels like to be treated as a VIP. This year, Bergman invited one foster child and one child that was adopted through the “Wednesday’s Child” program. “Wednesday’s Child really works!” says Bergman.
