Hollygrove announces the Norma Jean Gala presented by JAKKS Pacific to take place Wednesday, March 18 at The Taglyan Complex in Hollywood. The Norma Jean Gala is named in honor of Marilyn Monroe, who resided at Hollygrove (formerly known as the Los Angeles Orphans Home Society) from 1935 to 1937.

The Norma Jean Gala will feature a children's garden and art exhibit, cocktail reception and dinner with entertainment and a live and silent auction. Guests will be treated to an entertaining, interactive experience and delighted at every turn as they learn firsthand how their contributions transform the lives of children in crisis.

Proceeds from The Norma Jean Gala presented by JAKKS Pacific will benefit innovative programs at Hollygrove that exist solely due to private funding and impact children suffering from abuse, neglect and other forms of trauma. Sponsorships are available now.
