Fire Chief Daryl Osby participated in the March 13 Golden Ticket/Hero Youth Program event at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood, hosted by Cops4Causes, the first law enforcement nonprofit created to engage public safety professionals in supporting at-risk youth.

Osby was joined by Los Angeles County Children and Family Services (DCFS) Director Philip Browning; FOX11 news reporter Christine Devine; hockey star Luc Robitaille and his wife, Stacia; co-stars Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox of the popular ’70s television series “CHiPs”; and a host of other community supporters to help raise funds for Cops4Causes foster youth programs in Los Angeles County.

Currently, thousands of children in the county served by DCFS who cannot safely live with their own families due to abuse, neglect or abandonment need to be with a safe, stable and loving family unit, be it temporarily or permanently.

“Cops4Causes has heard the call and has launched a new partnership with foster youth programs, service providers and L.A. area theaters to support enrichment opportunities to experience the magic of live, world-class theater,” said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Landovazo, the organization’s founder. “The main focus of the Hero Youth program is to work with the first responder community, including police, firefighters and active-duty military to mentor foster youth and find homes for them.”

Osby was thanked for representing L.A. County firefighters at the event and invited to learn more about their advocacy and educational programs.
