“It’s not about winning but what it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it. If there’s a discipline for passion, and it’s not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down or you’re beaten up. It’s about how many times you stand up and are brave, and you keep on going.” Lady Gaga at the 91st Annual Academy Awards

Bergman’s heart is always in the right place as she invites beloved foster children to join in on the festivities and experience what it feels like to be treated as a VIP.
As a kindhearted gesture to giving back, guests & sponsors made monetary donations and/or donated unwrapped gifts for young adults (ages 13-18) for a Post-Holiday Gift Drive benefitting ‘Wednesday’s Child’ — a weekly segment airing on KTTV FOX 11 News, Los Angeles, with Anchor Christine Devine. ‘Wednesday’s Child’ highlights ‘harder to place’ children in the LA County foster care system who are in need of adoptive families.
“In Los Angeles County, alone, there are over 30,000 children receiving child welfare services,” says social worker, Dr. William Wong.
