You’re invited to join us for a lovely, family-friendly brunch filled with purpose and inspiration. Meet and mingle with our community of supporters and celebrate the impact of our work, while helping us raise critical funds for LA’s BEST. This year’s event will be at the Skirball Cultural Center, with special guest speakers and honorees, plus featured performances by our students, who will be sharing the stage with our wonderful host, Michaela Pereira.

Your attendance will help LA’s BEST engage children creatively, emotionally, intellectually and physically, empowering them to explore and discover the opportunities in their lives. Together, we can inspire and prepare children to create lives full of choices.
