The Weingart Center | Transformation Gala

The Weingart Center is a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to empowering and transforming lives within the community. Each year they host a gala to mark another year of success and to continue the fight against poverty and homelessness and we are looking forward to hosting the event at Vibiana once again on November 2nd.

Last year’s gala honored four leaders who spearheaded a renewed effort to combat homelessness across Los Angeles. Due to the influence of Mayor Eric Garcetti, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, United Way President Elise Buik and Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce President Gary Toebben, Proposition HHH was passed last November. That measure will raise $1.5 billion to get 10,000 homeless people off the streets and into permanent supportive housing. Additionally, they guided County Measure H to victory in March, which will help pay for the services those individuals will need to truly break the cycle of homelessness.

The Transformation Gala for the Weingart Center at Vibiana will be held on November 2 at 6:30 p.m. Vibiana owners Amy Knoll Fraser and Chef Neal Fraser will be honored at the gala for their leadership and dedication to this well deserving cause.
