The Woman of the Year campaign lasts 10 weeks. Foster’s team is aiming to raise $50,000, which will give her access to all the latest research in LLS. As part of the fundraising, her team is throwing “Avapalooza,” a family event, on May 31 at Torrey Hills Park in Del Mar.
The family-friendly event will offer entertainment, bounce houses, bunny pens, face painters, food, games and prizes. Tickets are $12 per person or $40 for a family 4-pack. For info and to purchase tickets, visit www.avapalooza.com.
