On Monday, July 17th, Orange County’s elite joined together for an amazing cause and organization. The Open Gata International Heroes and Legends inaugural gala hosted by Diedre and Albert Pujols was truly an amazing event! At Open Gate International, they provide vocational training, mentoring and employment to empower the impoverished, displaced, enslaved, and forgotten including those who are victims of human trafficking.
Training and mentoring are at the heart of everything they do. Without sustainable life skills, the vulnerable remain vulnerable. By providing the knowledge, skills, and abilities to obtain meaningful employment, we empower our students to develop a happy, healthy life.
The event was a success all around with star guests including Terry and Heather Dubrow, honorary emcee Jose Mota and Baseball Hall of Fame Coach Tony Larussa. Through everyone’s hard work, dedication and guest generosity, Open Gate International was able to raise over $729,000! Congratulations to Open Gate International!
