)-- Best Day Foundation, dedicated to helping children with special needs build confidence and self-esteem, and Crystal Cove Alliance, committed to the protection and preservation of the Crystal Cove State Park Historic District, plus other Orange County nonprofits will receive donations totaling $10,500 from The Charitable Foundation, an organization run by local real estate agents.

“Our board found it very meaningful and rewarding to see so many attendees having a terrific time working together to raise much-needed funds for outstanding local charities,” added board secretary Meghan Kelly.
