Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove campus, Hollywood, California, United States
Hosted by Busy Philipps.
The generosity of Hollywood will once again be on display this May 19, 2018 as the community comes together to celebrate Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove’s 7th Annual Norma Jean Gala, presented by Houlihan Lokey, under the stars at the beautiful Hollygrove campus against the backdrop of the Hollywood sign, an event to benefit the agency’s behavioral and mental health programs that provide help and hope to more than 1,200 at-risk children and their families in the Hollywood and South Los Angeles communities.
This year the gala proudly honors the agency’s friends and champions Ike Barinholtz and wife Erica Hanson with the Ambassador of Children Award, and will also bestow the agency’s first-ever Volunteer of the Year Award to CAA’s Chris Andrews. Ike and Erica were selected to receive this honor because they, through deed and example, embody the values of the organization’s mission, share its passion to strengthen and support children in crisis, and advocate for those most in need. Long-time friend Colin Hanks is set to present Barinholtz and Hanson with their award. Andrews, who has been an ongoing volunteer and supporter of the agency for several years by regularly tutoring and mentoring kids in the agency’s after school program, is being singled out for the impact he has made and the example he sets for others. Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominated actor Edgar Ramirez will present to Andrews.More info Back to calendar
