The Sonenshine family of Laguna Beach will be honored at Serious Fun, the Human Options fundraiser on May 9 at the Balboa Bay Resort, 1221 W. Coast Highway, Newport Beach.
The family has been instrumental in assisting Human Options, which provides a safe haven and life changing programs to help abused women, their children, since the organization began 33 years ago when Justice Sheila Prell Sonenshine counseled clients on the legal process. The family’s involvement extended to Ygal and Sheila’s son Danny and wife Kerri, who have both served on the board of directors and in a variety of other leadership positions for the past 13 years. Their young daughters Maggie, 12, and Sarah, 8, conduct their own fundraisers for Human Options including an annual Halloween costume drive, lemonade stands, birthday gift donations and art projects.
The evening begins with a red carpet welcome at 6 p.m. proceeding to a poolside silent auction and cocktail hour followed by dinner in the ballroom, a live auction, awards program and live music and dancing.
Individual tickets to the event are $400. For more information, call 949.737.5242 or visit www.humanoptions.org.
