Buhai Brunch Guests Donate and Dance the Day Away

In the sleek surroundings of the Conga Room at L.A. Live, actress (The Wonder Years) and Harriett Buhai Center supporter, Danica McKellar, led the upbeat, high-energy crowd in salsa dancing with her skilled partner. They captivated the 250 guests of the Center with their cha-cha moves and Latin dance prowess. Many patrons joined them on the dance floor and grooved to the music of the Conga Room band.

Alongside the entertainment, children’s face painting and good food, attendees enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere and spirited conversations, and were reminded why they contribute to the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law. A former client of the Center spoke of her traumatic past with an abusive husband and the desperation she endured until she found the Center. She never forgot the help she received through the Harriett Buhai Center and fifteen years later she honored her vow to return to volunteer (read the client’s story here). Her moving story was a testament to the power of change accomplished by donor support.

Supporters of the Buhai Brunch included longtime hosts Wasser, Cooperman & Carter and CMM, LLP, generous members of the family law community and friends of the Center. Former Harriett Buhai Center Board of Directors Vice President Laura Wasser emceed the event and Center co-founder Mablean Ephriam led a short live auction raising additional funds for the Center’s programs.
