I am so pleased to announce the success of The Nanny League for Stop the Silence Benefit at 3Dog Cantina in Hollywood. We surpassed our goal of $2500 and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
Even the charity’s founder and owner, Dr. Pamela Pine had these kind words to share:
Lindsay, I wanted to send a huge thank you out to all of those who participated in the the fundraising effort on behalf of Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse (www.stopcsa.org <http://www.stopcsa.org> ). We can’t thank you enough! Child sexual abuse (CSA) robs children of their innocence and is often so detrimental to their well-being, both while they are children and when they grow to be adults: psychological problems, physical problems, drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, homelessness, suicide and homicide, and more are all strongly associated with CSA. And it affects so many, it is nearly unbelievable – but true. There are at least 55 million survivors of child sexual abuse in the U.S. alone! The funds go a really long way in helping us to accomplish all that we do. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lindsay. Please forward this email to everyone with my deepest appreciation!
Guests enjoyed drink specials, music and mingling. They had a LOT of fun participating in the silent auction and raffle!
Thank you again 3Dog Cantina for offering us your patio space for the event, Emilee Wilson at GoMoment for your help in getting the word out there.

And– to my friends, Nanny League nannies, and colleagues– to everyone you came to the event and to those who donated to our fundraiser online, THANK YOU for supporting The Nanny League and Stop the Silence.
