Safe Passage, a nonprofit dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence, recently held their most successful fundraiser to date, with more than $60,000 donated to the cause. The host of the event, CBS Anchor Pat Harvey, said, "This is the most moving charity luncheon I've ever been to and I want you to know…that I am with you. That's on the record. From here forward, Safe Passage has my heart."
Philanthropist Erika Glazer has announced plans to donate more than $30 million over the next 15 years for the restoration of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple, along with the addition of other social programs. Aside from receiving naming rights, Glazer's donation will also help cover debt payments on tax-free bond financing for the $150-million initiative.
