When the going gets tough, the tough go virtual! It was clear that 2020 was going to be a fundraising year like no other – and LATLC wasn’t going to just walk away from our commitments and goals. With schools, business meetings, and even depositions moving to online platforms, we found a way to give our guests a signature LATLC experience from the comfort of their homes.
Our first virtualpoker tournament raised enough funds to provide, not the usual 10 scholarships, but TWELVE scholarships ($2,500 each) to deserving high school seniors.
The second tournament raised more than $50,000 and provided toys, groceries, and household items for south L.A. families during the holidays. The true meaning of “Comfort and Joy.”
LATLC held a third one in early 2021, and again raised enough for more than 10 college scholarships that will be announced before graduation.
Virtual and hybrid activities are also planned for the future.
