And, since Five Acres was founded 128 years ago in 1888, initially as the Boys’ and Girls’ Aid Society of Los Angeles and working primarily as an orphanage, the organization has grown and evolved in order to become even more beneficial and successful when it comes to the needs of our children.

On June 4, Five Acres holds its gala “Soirée Under the Stars” at the iconic Gamble House. The evening begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while perusing the silent auction items—as well as a “wine wall”—and strolling through Gamble House. Dinner is presented by Claud Beltran’s Claud & Co., followed by the live auction. Sit back and sip some Jones coffee while watching performances by dancers seen on Glee, So You Think You Can Dance, and Dancing with the Stars. Live music provided by The Happiness Band.

Release the “silly” by partaking in the soirée’s photo booth and admire the vintage automobiles on hand thanks to Aaron Weiss at Flying a Garage.

Come in your best 1900-1920s inspired outfit!
