Devotion to Children paints night red

It was an amazing turn out and red dresses galore had heads turning at the 9th Annual Red, Heart & Soul Gala benefiting charity Devotion to Children. The group that provides education and resources for single parents and families with children in need raised nearly $100,000.

Angie reports on DTC’s Gala on WUSA9 Below

There’s an event I’ve had the honor of attending for the last three years. It’s put on by one incredible woman, Rosemary Tran Lauer. She was an immigrant from Vietnam, a mother of 5 who struggled to succeed but was determined. Once she got on her feet, her experience and story inspired her to help other families in need.

Rosemary created Devotion to Children. The group provides everything from healthcare, daycare, childcare and educational services to families with young who cannot afford it.  DTC has helped hundreds of families across Virginia thanks to successful fundraisers and nights like last night. The Red Heart and Soul Gala is in it’s 8th year and it was an honor to serve again as the emcee.  Together, DTC hopes to raise $200,000 in 2011 to help more families. We hope that you will join in the pledge to break the poverty cycle that exists amongst so many local families.
