• Our philanthropic events have become some of Orange County’s most celebrated social events where we come together for fun and networking to celebrate Pretend City while raising significant funds benefitting young children. Thank you to the many supporters who have participated in our events as guests, individual donors, and corporate sponsors. 

  • Poker Tournament  

    Our annual Poker event invites guests to go big or go home. It’s a night of all-around fun, lively antics, and the chance to strike it big for early childhood education. Many thanks to our generous players and donors who helped us raise over $200,000 at our 10th Annual Poker Tournament held on May 9, 2019.
