The magnificent Vibiana was aglow for Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services’ 10th Annual Celebrating Children Gala on Saturday, April 13.

Over 300 guests attended the sold out event, which raised funds to support the organization’s clinical and supportive services that provide youth and young adults with homes and hope. Vibiana’s innovative Redbird restaurant served up handcrafted cocktails and bites to guests during a courtyard reception followed by dinner in the main hall. Guests had the chance to bid on a silent auction filled with exciting luxury items and once in a lifetime experiences.

Hathaway-Sycamores President and CEO Debra Manners welcomed guests and thanked them for coming together to support the organization’s services that impact more than 15,000 lives each year. Emmy-Award-winning CBS2 morning news anchor Peter Daut entertained all as the gala emcee. Guests were treated to a special performance by internationally renowned tenor, Nathan Pacheco, which included several operatic gems capped by a rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

The pinnacle of the night was the celebration of Hathaway-Sycamores’ board member, Dr. Robert Pynoos, who was honored with the Celebrating Children Award for his leadership and impact in the field of childhood trauma. Assemblymember Christopher Holden joined the celebration of Dr. Pynoos’ professional achievements and Hathaway-Sycamores’ commitment to children and families, presenting both with proclamations.

Special thanks to this year’s gala committee chaired by longtime Hathaway-Sycamores donor Rita Henderson. Our deepest gratitude goes to every individual, organization and company who supported through attendance, sponsorship, and donations. Your compassion and care for the youth and young adults we serve is truly appreciated. Thank you for helping us make this a night to remember so we can continue the work we are committed to each and every day to build hope and resilience in individuals across Los Angeles.
