The Bright Futures Celebration unites Orange County business and community leaders for an evening of entertainment and giving. Over the past 14 years, more than 3,000 guests have participated in this annual celebration and helped the Child Abuse Prevention Center raise critical funds to help Orange County children.
With the theme of Escape to Wine Country, the Celebration guests will be greeted with wine provided by Frog’s Leap, Nicolette Christopher, Kelly Fleming and Edward Sellers, along with canapés prepared by Chef Paul Martin Fleming while the “Tijuana Dogs” provide musical entertainment throughout the evening. Guests will later enjoy a silent and live auction, followed by an awards ceremony, dinner prepared by St. Regis’s own Chef Castan, and dancing until 11:00 p.m.
Southern California companies have generously donated auction items for the attendees to bid on and win. Some of the featured auction packages include: a one-week stay in a villa in Cabo San Lucas, minutes from white sandy beaches, a six-night stay in a home in Park City Utah, a one-week Hawiian Paradise vacation and stay at the Pono Kai resort in Kauai, Hawaii, a 10-person dinner with Chef Fleming, and a one-of-a-kind custom, tailored suit. Silent auction items include: a private wine tasting party for up to 16 people, a day of golf at the private Coto de Caza Golf course, and a 30-day gym pass to Vivos Fitness with four sessions of personal training, among others.
Single tickets for the Bright Futures Celebration start at $300; a private table of 10 is priced at $3,000, and private tables for a "Family" of 16 guests start at $4,500.
The Child Abuse Prevention Center (CAPC) is dedicated to serving at-risk children and families with programs that prevent and break the generational cycle of child abuse, teen pregnancy and family violence.
The Child Abuse Prevention Center is a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt entity that was established in 1983 to prevent child abuse among at-risk families in Orange County. The goal of intervention is to replace parenting patterns that may lead to abuse and neglect with nurturing parenting styles, as well as to empower parents to become self-sufficient. The Child Abuse Prevention Center matches professional caseworkers who work directly with families in their homes, supply household goods and provide counseling on a regular basis.
