O.C. Family Justice Center stages annual ‘Memorable Magical Motown’ experience

By BTB Staff

Saturday night was Motown Night in Anaheim.

Crowds enjoyed “The Memorable Magical Motown Experience 2016” at Pearson Park Amphitheatre on July 30.

The concert was presented by the Orange County Family Justice Center and KazArte Motivational Song and Dance.

Anaheim PD Chief Raul Quezada made brief comments before the show, which featured the talents of members of the OCFJC Youth Dance Program and staff and La Serna High School students under the direction of Lisa Kazakos.

The Orange County Family Justice Center, a multi-agency non-profit run by the Anaheim PD, serves survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, elder/dependent adult abuse and sexual assault (visit orangecountyfamilyjusticecenter.org for more information). The APD’s Lt. James Kazakos is director of the center.

Tickets to the Motown performance were only $5 and proceeds went to support the “Kids Creating Change program” at the OCFJC.

Here are moments from Saturday’s event:
