Our Special Host for this year’s event is none other than the fabulous Angela Bassett from the Blockbuster movie “Black Panther” and the popular Fox TV series “9-1-1”.

LAPD, and LAFD first responders helped evacuate our Hope Gardens families safely during the #creekfire, so we are honored to present them with the “Heart of Courage” and “Heart of Valor” awards.  URM will also honor the Porto family with the “Heart of Generosity” award for their many years of faithful and delicious food donations that have helped us serve over 3,000 meals daily and Patty Phillips of Patty’s Gourmet Pizza will receive the “Heart of Service” award for her longtime dedication of fundraising and support of Hope Gardens Family Center.
