Since she began participating in Doris Bergman events, Charise Noel said her company is enjoying a lot more exposure. Several celebrities, including Rebecca Metz and Mary Lou Henner, are now wearing her unique magnetic jewelry.
In the spirit of giving back, guests and sponsors made monetary donations and/or donated unwrapped gifts for young adults (ages 13-18) for a pre-holiday gift drive benefiting 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’ young adults in the LA County foster care system who are in need of adoptive families.
“In Los Angeles County, alone, there are over 30,000 children receiving child welfare services,” said social worker, Dr. William Wong. Bergman always invites at least two foster youth to join in on the festivities and experience what it feels like to be treated like a VIP. http://www.foxla.com/wednesdays-child
