About 50 people contributed $60,000 towards the Tahirih Justice Center during a fundraiser at the Laguna Beach home of Jeff and Suzy Elghanayan Sunday, June 11.

Actress Eva LaRue described the efforts of the Falls Church, Va., organization, to supports girls and women fleeing violence. While Tahirih served over 2,000 clients last year, that amounts to just one in 10 of those who sought help, says a statement.
