Hollywood Chamber Installation and Awards Luncheon at Hilton Universal, March 31st

This year, the program will honor four exceptional leaders who have made a difference in the Hollywood community. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation is proud to recognize the achievements of these heroes: Beatrice Girmala, Assistant Chief, Director of the Office of Special Operations for the Los Angeles Police Department; John Lyons, Owner of Avalon Hollywood; Baydsar Thomasian, Deputy District Director, Office of President Pro Tempore Kevin de León; Pink’s Hot Dogs, Hollywood’s most iconic hot dog stand for over 75 years.

Additionally, Founder and President of the Hollywood Museum in the Historic Max Factor Building, Donelle Dadigan, will be honored with the Distinguished Service Award in Memory of Johnny Grant. Entertainment journalist and television host of Entertainment Tonight, Nancy O’Dell, will be honored with the Mary Pickford Award.

The Community Foundation welcomes back Carole Sarian of The CrisCom Company and Cindy Braun of Braun Consulting as the Heroes of Hollywood event co-chairs. George Pennacchio, ABC7 Entertainment Reporter, will emcee.

Heroes of Hollywood is the most recognized fundraising event of the year for the Community Foundation. The event has saluted over 150 Hollywood leaders – through its predecessor, the Women of Distinction Awards – and has raised over $800,000 since 1993. Last year’s event raised over $30,000 in grants, which, in turn, were awarded to non-profit organizations in Hollywood. The event is attended by over 300 dignitaries, community leaders, and special guests and is a premier networking opportunity.
