Gala for the Children
Each year, our Gala for the Children brings together APCH’s long standing supporters as well as new friends to celebrate our children and raise critical funds to support the organization.
It is a fun and meaningful evening dedicated to understanding our mission, meeting our young people, enjoying APCH music and dance, and sharing the company of our Board of Directors and fellow donors and investors in the lives of the youth and families we serve.
This year, we honor Johnny Lopez, Founding Partner of Platinum Equity, with the Debrah Constance Humanitarian Award and Damon Wolf, President of Worldwide Marketing for Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, with the Children’s Inspiration Award on November 19th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Each night begins with a cocktail party and extensive silent auction that includes fantastic, once in a lifetime experiences, trips, rare wines, sports tickets, artwork, jewelry, and more.
Once seated, guests are treated to stories from our APCH families, music from luminaries like Stevie Wonder and Gavin Rossdale, and heartfelt remarks from our Board Chair, Executive Director and our annual honorees.
