CThe 23rd Annual Fostering Hope Golf Classic in benefit of Voices for Children (VFC) took place at The Grand Del Mar on March 9, but the party really started the night before at the Cocktail and Auction Party that also benefited VFC. More than 140 golfers, tournament sponsors, and other VFC supporters attended the cocktail at The Grand Del Mar’s Club M. Event co-chairs were Katie and Dan Sullivan and Connie and Richard Unger. Together, the golf tournament and the cocktail party netted more than $150,000 for the foster children VFC serves in San Diego. The evening included cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, and an incredible auction featuring Taylor Swift concert tickets, a private box at Petco Park, an in-home catered dinner, and more.  Guest attendance helped VFC continue the vital work of the Court Appointed Special Advocate program, which transforms the lives of the county’s foster children by providing them with advocacy in the courtroom, classroom, and community.
