Fristers, an Orange County-based nonprofit devoted to helping teen parents thrive, will hold its Celebration Gala held on Friday, September 27 at the historic Port Theatre in Corona del Mar. Fristers, its name combining “friends” and “sisters,” has helped more than 2,000 teen parents and children since 2008.
Community volunteer Sandy Sizemore will receive the Founder’s Award at the gala for her significant contributions to Fristers. The Costa Mesa resident has donated videography services helping to tell Fristers’ stories over the past 11 years.
At the Celebration Gala, Fristers graduates will share their stories of how the organization has transformed their lives during video testimonies on the big screen at the Port Theatre.
The elegant evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with cocktail hour, raffle opportunities and wine vault. The Island Hotel’s Coastal Catering will provide dinner followed by videos, program and live auction.
