“CRT/tanaka is proud to have provided counsel and support to such a great local organization,” said Craig Rexroad, vice president and general manager of CRT/tanaka’s Los Angeles office. “There are more than 200 children in Los Angeles that could benefit from Walk With Sally’s mentorship program, and it is very rewarding for our agency to help.”
This year’s annual gala raised approximately $250,000 for Walk with Sally’s mentorship program for children whose parents or siblings are fighting or have died from cancer. The event was held at King Harbor in Redondo Beach and featured bites from some of the South Bay’s best restaurants, cocktails from Patron’s famous Ice Bar, and a live and silent auction. All proceeds go directly to Walk With Sally’s programs.
