WHY:            Philanthropy is incredibly important to Elyse Walker.  After losing her mother to stage four ovarian cancer at the young age of 42, Elyse founded the Pink Party to benefit the Women’s Cancer Research Program at Cedars-Sinai.  The annual event took place over 10 years and brought in over 11.5 million dollars, with celebrities such as Jennifer Garner,Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, Leslie Mann, Kate Beckinsale, lending their name to the cause.

Since opening her second elysewalker store in 2016, located in Newport Beach’s Lido Marina Village, Elyse has been impressed with the difference CASA was making in their mission to serve neglected youth in the greater Orange County area. It was the perfect philanthropic partnership and so CASA ROCKS was born.  The first annual CASA ROCKS event took place on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, was attended by over 225 guests, and raised over $120,000 for CASA.
