It's almost that time! Our largest fundraiser of the year is around the corner. The 2020 Spring event will feature brunch with mimosas, silent and live auctions showcasing travel, restaurants, cultural and retail opportunities, and an exciting program highlighting our impact over the past year.
This year, we are deeply honored to welcome Rebecca Makkai, author and 2019 Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist for The Great Believers, as keynote speaker. The book also captured the 2019 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction and the L.A. Times Book Prize, among other awards. In addition, Makkai has written The Hundred Year House, The Borrower, and Music for Wartime.
Irika Sargent, Emmy award-winning anchor of CBS2 Evening News, will emcee.
