WMMC Charitable Foundation Gala
Priscilla Lizarraga, presented with Woman of the Year Award at Gala 2012, surrounded by WMMC/TELACU Nurses
Gala 2012 proved another financial and social success. More than 600 guests attended to meet and greet, to dine and enjoy special entertainment provided by a number of outstanding and local performers, including six students from the Los Angeles Music and Art School.
In addition to Priscilla Lizarraga pictured above, Honorees included Monica Garcia, President of the Board of Education for the LAUSD, Community Leader of the Year; Al Deininger, WMMC Vice President for Facilities, Volunteer of the Year; California State Senator Kevin De Leon, Civic Leader of the Year.
The evening’s proceeds are being used for the creation of the WMMC Simulation Center, to serve as a critical educational resource for all clinicians.
A special highlight of the evening was the Fund A Need, a kind of fast-paced auction of giving. This exciting activity, lasting less than 10 minutes, generated more than $97,000 in support of our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit’s equipment needs.
Leticia Aguilar, EVP regional Executive L.A./Central Community Banking for Union Bank and George A. Ramirez, EVP and Chief Diversity Executive for Union Bank Co-Chaired this most enjoyable and successful evening.
