On Thursday, September 28 we hosted our 2017 Los Angeles Builders Ball® at the historic Beverly Hilton. It was an amazing night and thanks to the generosity of nearly 800 guests, we raised more than half a million dollars. The funds raised will go towards our Building a Greater Los Angeles campaign, helping to empower low-income families and individuals through homeownership, as well as support rebuilding efforts for regions affected by recent natural disasters.
We celebrated our deserving honorees, “Sugar” Ray Leonard, Luc Robitaille and Morley Builders for their dedication to transforming the landscape of Los Angeles. We were inspired by the Mulvihill family, who shared about the journey that led them to partner with Habitat LA and the hope it has given them. And the night culminated with a show-stopping, toe-tapping performance by R&B vocal group, En Vogue.
Celebrity attendees included Tina Knowles Lawson, Cookie Johnson, Apryl Jones, Kelly Rutherford, Tom Schwartz, Trevor Jackson and many others.
It was a lovely evening and we want to thank all our 2017 Los Angeles Builders Ball® sponsors including: City National Bank, Edison International, EY, Hollywood Sierra Kitchens, La Cienega Design Quarter, Los Angeles Magazine, the Lelia Fund, Proskauer, Southern California Gas Company, Zurich and many more. We also want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our Los Angeles Builders Ball® committee and all who support our mission to Build a Greater Los Angeles.
