Our second, and what becameour most profitable fundraiser, wasthe annual Casino Night and Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament.
2014 – The 1st Annual Casino Night
It started in 2014 at the Casa del Mar in Santa Monica. LATLC thought it might help us fund more partner charities – which it did, doubling our annual grants from the previous year to $100,000. Not only did we have the tournament and games, there was dancing, spa treatments, and a silent auction. The event was a HUGE success!
2015-2017 – Fairmont Hotel Evenings
From 2015 to 2017, LATLC held the event atthe Fairmont Hotel in Santa Monica. It soon became the “event of the year” – with more than 1,000 attending by 2016.

2018 – Hollywood Roosevelt – A Vintage Night
Each year, the evenings have become more and more successful, moving from the Fairmont to the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 2018, this time with a vintage theme.
2019 – Intercontinental Hotel
We kept growing and in 2019 held our annual event downtown at the Intercontinental Hotel, adding fun activities like “silent disco” and karaoke with a live band.
2021 – Summer Soiree
LATLC decided that, after COVID-19 and a desire to connect our annual event more with our partner charities and our community work, we created SUMMER SOIREE –A Party with a Purpose in 2021.
