The Angelic Auxiliary of Children’s Bureau will host its 17th Annual Carnival at the Pier on Sunday, March 3, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. Approximately 650 children and parents are expected to attend the event for Children’s Bureau, a nonprofit leader in child abuse prevention and treatment. The event is expected to raise over $110,000 for child abuse prevention.

Admission includes private use of the park, unlimited amusement park rides, free parking, and game tickets. Carnival treats will be provided by Fresh Brothers Pizza and Shake Shack; beverages will be supplied by La Colombe Coffee.

Carnival at the Pier is an event that families look forward to every year, not only because it is a day of fun, but because it is an opportunity to give back to the community. We are so proud that all of the funds raised will go toward helping the 40,000 at-risk children and parents that Children’s Bureau serves,” says Deepthi Brown, President of The Angelic Auxiliary.

The Carnival’s major corporate sponsor is AECOM, with special recognition to Keitha Russell, an Angel-level sponsor who is a longtime supporter of Children’s Bureau. Additional sponsors include Deepthi and Patrick Brown, and Marianna and John Linfesty at the Crusader level; Mar Vista Charitable Foundation, the Pack Family and Carleen and Bryant Riley at the Defender level, and many more. Deepthi Brown, Marianna Linfesty, Jacqueline Pack of The Pack Family, and Carleen Riley are all Angelic Auxiliary members and residents of the Los Angeles Westside.

Pre-event ticket prices are $90.00 for adults (ages 16 & up) and $50.00 for kids (ages 3 – 15) with pricing to increase at the door. Tickets will be held for guests at check-in. To purchase tickets, visit and watch more details unfold on Facebook.
