SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Children's Burn Foundation, which provides the expertise and programs to prevent pediatric burns and to heal severely burned children, celebrated its 13th annual Giving New Hope Benefit at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 21. The event was attended by more than 700 guests and raised more than $875,000 to help children and families in Los Angeles and around the world.

"We are privileged to have raised these funds through the dynamic efforts of The Council who worked tirelessly to ensure that the Foundation can continue to do its important work," stated Doug Mancino, chairman of the board of the Children's Burn Foundation and a partner with McDermott, Will & Emery. "Proceeds raised by the benefit will provide state-of-the-art medical treatment for children who have suffered severe burn injuries. Funds will also be used to conduct fire safety and burn prevention programs for children and families in high-risk communities throughout Los Angeles County."

Health Net's Roger Greaves and his wife Erika were presented the Giving New Hope award by the Foundation for their philanthropy and commitment to giving young people hope for a better future.
