Out in Burbank, California above Griffith Park the Calamigos Ranch at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center was buzzing this past Saturday night for the New Horizons “Havana Nights” Gala Fundraiser. Guests mingled in the garden courtyard over cocktails and silent auction items while posing for photos with their favorite actors.
Charming and dashing Brant Daugherty, of ABC’s hit show, Pretty Little Liars, hosted the gala, while gorgeous Torrey DeVitto, also from Pretty Little Liars, did a special musical performance, playing the haunting, beautiful violin in front of dinner guests.

Other dinner acts included a bold shirtless performance from a duo from ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance along with music from the award winning UCLA Latin Jazz Band.
Clay Aiken was also honored with the Celebrity Advocate Award. Additional celebrity guests included Rick Glassman (Undateable), Ian Bohen (Teen Wolf), Julz Tocker (DWTS), and Tara Popowich (SYTYCD Canada).

This year we are proud to present a night that will be both entertaining and heartwarming, showing all those who attend the work that New Horizons does throughout the year,” states New Horizons’ President and CEO Cynthia Sewell.
