The recent Change Begins Within benefit gala in Los Angeles, California, USA was an unqualified success, organizers said. The gala was hosted by the David Lynch Foundation to generate support and awareness for its many philanthropic projects, including improving education for at-risk youth and providing better treatment for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, through the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

The gala featured headliners like Ellen DeGeneres, Russell Brand, and David Lynch who established the Foundation.

Six hundred top VIPs enjoyed the event live in the theatre at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. About 250 also watched the fully subscribed event from a separate VIP screening room. About 350 more wanted to attend but could not be accommodated for lack of space.

According to Bob Roth, vice president of the David Lynch Foundation, at least 1,200 people in all were keenly interested in supporting the event. The hall was filled with influential people, leaders in many fields from Los Angeles and around the country, including top financial leaders; industry leaders in film, music, and the arts; and distinguished medical doctors and heads of foundations, Mr Roth said.

Members of the audience also came to hear about the successful treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) using Transcendental Meditation. These included heads of VA (veterans) hospitals and high-ranking leaders from different branches of the military who came to learn how Transcendental Meditation can help military personnel overcome PTSD—'active duty service personnel as well veterans, young men and women who've had the unfortunate experience of traumatic stress while in combat,' Mr Roth remarked.

Global Good News will continue to feature the 3 December 2011 Change Begins Within gala in Los Angeles.
