For the first time, Society's cover is graced with a sculpture, "Celebration" by De Lesprie, donated by the Tesoro family to Casa Pacifica Centers for Children & Families, continuing their tradition of bringing beautiful art to the children at Casa Pacifica. Casa Pacifica's main Camarillo campus provides the perfect setting for children and adolescents to heal and find new hope for a better future.
"This sculpture is a small girl with her happy future ahead of her," said Tony Tesoro. "The work done by Casa Pacifica makes this a possibility for so many foster and at-risk kids in our community. Mary & I have been a major supporter for years and thought it symbolic for this piece of art to be located on their campus."
Casa Pacifica provides a continuum of care, from community-based services designed to help youth with complex behavioral/emotional health issues, and their families, learn strategies that will keep youth in their homes, schools, and communities.
They have just completed construction of co-occurring cottages, and their new Training Institute and Vocational Education Center is ongoing and on track for completion in late August.

Thank you, Tony & Mary Tesoro, for bringing art to the kids!
