Dear Friends and Community Members, 


I am thrilled to announce that after a few years of not been able to have our only fundraiser for the JOY Foundation, we are bringing our Compassion & Fashion Show back on June 3, 2023 at St. Monica’s Grand Pavilion


As the founder of the nonprofit “JOY” Jewels of Youth Foundation and mother of two children with autism, creating awareness and helping children and families has been my passion. I know firsthand the challenge of finding and navigating the support network in the special needs community. Through the JOY Foundation , it is our mission to educate and engage families so they can help to empower special needs individuals to ensure an equitable quality of life for all.


I hope you will consider donating today to improve the quality of life of our children and family with special needs.  


Please join us to bring JOY to a child’s Life.
