Guests filled the Rotunda Building on April 27 and enjoyed a gourmet dinner, jazz and live auction to raise funds for First Place for Youth, an Oakland nonprofit assisting foster kids. The ninth annual There’s No Place Like Home event raises money to end the homelessness and poverty that sometimes plague former foster children. Joseph Neal, an emancipated foster child, addressed the crowd, discussing the challenges of life after foster care, and fundraising goals were met. www.firstplacefund.org. Photography by Lani Allen.
