Carmel Valley resident George Lai has been welcomed as one of four new additions to the board of directors for Voices for Children (VFC), a nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of abused children by providing them with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). George currently serves as the President of the Lily Lai Foundation, a private foundation in San Diego that upholds its charitable mission to support cancer research, education, and nutrition benefitting disadvantaged women and children.

VFC’s board is typically comprised of community and business leaders who are responsible for financial oversight, goal-setting, policy development, and fundraising. Members of the board meet regularly to review programs and make policy decisions. They dedicate additional time to attending Voices for Children outreach, fundraising events, and CASA graduation celebrations. For more information on VFC visit www.speakupnow.org.
