Every year, the Whispers from Children’s Hearts Foundation founded by Lisa Haisha, puts on a star-studded Annual Legacy Gala Fundraising Event that donates to charities who are making a difference in the world and in the legacy of the lives they touch. The Third Annual Legacy Gala was held Friday, March 24, 2017 at Casa Del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica, CA. This was an inspiring evening filled celebrities, mus‍‍‍icians, Silicon Valley titans, luminaries and like-minded people! Whispers from Children’s Hearts Foundation specializes in supporting the emotional and spiritual needs of children’s hearts with music, theatre, and singing.  Here is a list of previous Legacy Gala award recipients:

2017 - Akuyoe Graham's, founder of Spirit Awakening Foundation. Akuyoe Graham is an award-winning actor, author and educator. She is the founder of the Spirit Awakeni‍‍‍ng Foundation, a charitable arts organization dedicated to assisting “at-risk” youth and children in the juvenile justice system in the realization of their spiritual identity.

2015 - Kathy Buckley, co founder of No Limits for Deaf Children, an awesome organization that teaches deaf children the skills to succeed in school and in life through its national theater group and educational centers.

It's part of their mission to motivate parents to be actively involved and educated in this process, as they are the key factor in the success of their children.
