Since 1996, The Angelic Auxiliary has raised more than 2.1 million in support of Children’s Bureau through Carnival at the Pier, but their work extends far beyond this annual event.

Not only do we get to enjoy a private, fun day at the pier, but it is all the more rewarding knowing that all of the funds raised go toward Children’s Bureau’s life-changing programs and services,” says Yvonne Hsieh-Schumacher, President of the Angelic Auxiliary. Members to note include Angelic Auxiliary President Yvonne Hsieh-Schumacher and Vice President Jacqueline Pack who both reside in Pacific Palisades.
