The Trusteeship welcomed “home” two former Adrienne Hall Emerging Leadership Award winners, Cynthia Sanchez, Executive Director of Proyecto Pastorale and Lynn Houston, Founder & CEO of A Different Point of View. Along with these former awardees, Trusteeship member, Wendy Garen, President & CEO of the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation graciously moderated an informal panel about the changes in philanthropy and the non-profit world. Our own Chris Essel, President & CEO of Southern California Grantmakers helped to round out the panel.
Additionally, the panel engaged in a discussion about how philanthropists, activists and non-profit organizations are partnering to achieve greater impacts in critical areas of need.
We also had a chance to view the new LEF video PSA. Click here to take a look:
Thank you to hostess Marcia Hobbs for sharing her wonderful private club, the Bel Air Bay Club, Lower Club in Pacific Palisades with all of us. What a spectacular location! We all enjoyed the mussels, swordfish, chicken, tomato watermelon, kale and butter lettuce salads…oh, and of course, the awesome Hot Fudge Sundae Bar!
