Rams honored at Outstanding Children’s Foundation 75th Anniversary Gala
On Saturday, June 24, the Los Angeles Rams were honored at the Celebrations of Legends gala hosted by Exceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF) to celebrate its 75th anniversary.
The gala raised $ 1.5 million to support ECF’s programs and services for children and adults in Los Angeles. Rams Safety Terrell Burgess accepted the award on behalf of the organization.
“The Los Angeles Rams are honored to receive this recognition from the Exceptional Children’s Foundation and proud to support an organization that provides essential and innovative services to people with developmental disabilities,” said Molly Higgins, vice president of community affairs and the engagement of the Rams.
ECF has grown into a nationally recognized organization for over 75 years, serving more than 5,000 people with developmental disabilities and their families each year in Los Angeles County. In California, ECF is the only organization to provide a lifetime of service to children and adults facing developmental, learning and emotional barriers, enabling them to reach their highest potential.
“Inclusion is a top priority for the Rams and when we returned home to Los Angeles in 2016 we learned of the impactful work being done by ECF and saw an immediate opportunity to partner with them in our community work,” said Higgins said.
