Join us: Red, Heart & Soul Gala

Once again.. I’m happy to be part of Devotion to Children’s annual RED, HEART & SOUL Fall Gala Benefit. The event takes place Tuesday, November 12, at The Ritz Carlton of Tyson’s Corner.

RED, HEART & SOUL is the culmination of DTC’s year-long efforts to raise funds and create awareness for its programs and initiatives, which supports quality childcare and preschool programs for young children from deserving economically challenged families.

Attire will be red – a RED, HEART & SOUL tradition – or black tie optional.

DTC’s largest annual fundraiser has matured from a small dinner gathering at Tran Lauer’s home in 2002, which brought in just over $3,000, to a major charity event, with this year’s Gala being held at the Ritz Carlton of Tyson’s Corner. Last year’s Gala raised more than $100,000, and welcomed over 400 guests.

Tickets are available to the public for $250 each by calling DTC at 703-255-2284 or through the DTC web site at For information regarding corporate and media sponsorship packages, please contact Ban Tran at or Rosemary Tran Lauer at

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.
