‘Be The Light’ at the BSCC Human Trafficking Awareness & Prevention Fundraiser

If you’d like to make a difference in San Diego and beyond, then “be the light” at the second-annual Human Trafficking Awareness & Prevention Fundraiser in La Jolla on Thursday evening.

The fundraiser is a collaboration between Pacific Sotheby’s and the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition (BSCC), an organization that combats human trafficking in San Diego County.

Importantly, BSCC is the only nonprofit in San Diego that has a 24/7 help line, which allows them to connect with trafficked individuals and help bright them to safety, and eventually, care and treatment.

BSCC works with law enforcement, medical professionals, and psychological care. They specialize in helping trafficking victims become survivors — and, eventually, Thrivers — through a curated program that ensures both positive social and community reintegration.

This year, the Human Trafficking Awareness & Prevention Fundraiser is themed “Be The Light,” and participants are asked to dress in white to signify the light in the world. There will be drinks, music, appetizers, special guest speakers, and more.

As far as special events, the fundraiser will feature music and two painters creating original works of art live during the event. Both will be sold in a live auction during the event. Additionally, there will also be an authentic paella chef creating delicious cuisine, as well as small bites and drinks from some of the best La Jolla restaurants.

Special guests will include BSCC Executive Director Marisa Ugarte, local elected leaders, dignitaries from Mexico, and “Thrivers” who experienced human trafficking first-hand.

The event will take place at the Pacific Sothesby’s office in downtown La Jolla at 1111 Prospect St., Suite 100, on April 11th from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. All proceeds will directly benefit BSCC.
