The luncheon will honor community members, public officials and organizational “Champions” who helped us as essential social services providers navigate the hardest phases of the COVID-19 pandemic. Awardees range from community, business and organizational leaders to local and state-level champions.

“Betty Yee, California State Controller has served our State well for two consecutive terms (2014 – 2022), providing a level of fairness, openness and transparency in the State Controller’s Office (SCO). As she prepares to leaves the SCO, we recognize her lifetime achievement and work of distinction with more than 35-years in public service, specializing in finance and tax policy.”

YWCA of San Gabriel Valley· LEADING THROUGH CHANGE Founded in 1935, YWCA of San Gabriel Valley (YWCA-SGV) has been a long-standing multi-service community resource in the San Gabriel Valley region for over 87 years. YWCA is committed to empowering women, girls, seniors and their families and providing the services they need to manage the critical issues in their lives. Although women continue to be our primary target, today, many of our services and programs are gender-neutral and are open to all regardless of race, sex or gender identity. We achieve this by providing culturally sensitive, trauma­informed social services to those impacted by violence and seniors experiencing food insecurities in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys within Los Angeles County.
