Weeks ago, when I was asked by my editors to write a column for this space every week, I accepted it humbly and graciously, with the thought that I did not deserve to have a column yet in this stage of my career, and that instead it should go to one of my esteemed veteran colleagues. What?s funny is, when I finally figured out what I was going to write about, I panicked over how I was going to write about it. So I?

The hottest spot north of Havana is just on the Horizon. New Horizons Family Center's annual gala benefit, "A Night at the Copacabana" at the Los Angeles Downtown Marriott, is sold out for the first time in its 11-year history, event organizer Eleanor Torres said. "We will have [more than] 500 in attendance," Torres said. "We always get close to sold out. But this is the year definitely where we've done very well." The draw might be the recreated vintage nightclubs from the '20s and the '30s, Torres said, or it could be the headliner, Charo, comedienne of the stage and screen, musician and singer, who starred regularly on "The Love Boat" and "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson."

More than 3,000 children in Orange County are in the foster care and the juvenile court system on an average day, and a large percentage of them are in need of stable relationships and mentors. Social workers and judges manage multiple cases and rarely have time to focus on a single child. That's where the Court Appointed Special Advocates program (CASA) comes in. The juvenile court appoints volunteers to serve as advocates for children going through court proceedings.
