Board Chair Statement

It’s hard to believe 15 years has passed since 30 friends gathered in the backyard of my parent’s home in Orange County, CA. On that first night in 2003, the intention was purely to host a simple cocktail party where friends could have a good time while giving back to an important cause; I could not have dreamed up the tremendous support and participation that we have today. The level of generosity amongst young men and women ranging in age from 21-45 has been outstanding.

At a time when these “young professionals” are pursuing so many personal goals - To find love, date, and get married... Land a job, keep a job, get promoted... Build a future, a family, and financial success...
They pause one night out of the year to come together for a cause greater than themselves.

In 2011 we became recognized as a 501c3 nonprofit public charity. What was once a backyard gathering was never intended to become a nationwide non-profit foundation, but this organization is a true “grass-roots” movement led by ambassadors all over the U.S.

Without the countless hours of service from both volunteers and Kapture’s event producers, our lavish fundraising cocktail parties would not be what they are - a vessel for young philanthropic giving. Furthermore, it is because of every individual’s financial contribution and the generous support of our sponsors, that we are able to take care of women and men in need of special services which may not be covered by insurance.

Thanks to you, we are able to unite as a community and give back so beautifully.

Nilo G., Founder
