23rd Celebration of Champions Annual Benefit

What a fun, exciting night! Thank you everyone who came out to support Children’s Law Center at our annual awards and fundraiser.  We are blown away by your generosity. It was amazing to watch as you all continued to raise your paddles in support of the children we serve.  Thank you!  You helped secure essential funds and we appreciate your belief in our mission and ongoing partnership.  Don’t forget, we have a new volunteer training happening November 2nd!

Congratulations to our award winners:

  • Heroes for Children Award – Richard Hooks Wayman
  • Rosalie E. Wahl Justice for Children Award – Craig Luedemann
  • Distinguished Service Award – Greene Espel LPPL


We would like to extend a special thank you to our keynote speaker, Ivan Fong, for inspiring all of us.

Also, a big thank you to Susan Elizabeth Littlefield, our emcee, for her energy and touching interview with a former CLC client.

We look forward to another wonderful event with all of you next year.
