Larry Vescera likes being a surrogate parent. The 57-year-old Eastbluff resident becomes one -- albeit for only a few hours every week -- when he volunteers for Court Appointed Special Advocates, a national organization that helps abused or neglected children who are wards of the court and child welfare system. Vescera, who works with the Orange County chapter of the group, has been assigned to four teenagers over the last seven years. Volunteers like him carefully study an individual child's disrupted life and make a recommendation to the court as to what they believe is best for the child.

COSTA MESA — South Coast Plaza might be associated with shopping and restaurants, but the center also hosts Pumpkins and Pancakes, an annual October event that benefits children in need. Sunday's installment of the 20-year-old tradition drew a crowd of about 1,200 to raise money for the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) Children's Foundation, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Orange County and Orangewood Children's Foundation. "One-hundred percent of the money that we raise from this event goes to all the three charities that are presented with us today," said event organizer Jennifer Segerstrom, who was dressed as a devil in black horns, a long black robe and a spider necklace.
