Spotlight on Education РSpeakeasy soiree benefiting Switzer Learning Center

A casino night, and a roaring twenties theme were in full swing at the Shade Hotel in Redondo on the evening of December 3. Guests were dressed to the nines with sparkling forehead bands, feather headpieces, pearl necklaces and long gloves. It felt like the Great Gatsby revisited. Judith L. Borck, Switzer Center co-founder, and retired CEO at Country Home Bakers was among the guests. Proceeds benefited the Switzer Learning Center in Torrance, a special education school that offers individualized learning programs in a nonpublic school setting, paired with clinical support so students with special needs can believe in themselves, achieve success in school, and thrive as independent adults.
