2015 Annual Humanitarian Awards Dinner

On May 21st, 2015 CCEJ celebrated its 52nd Annual Humanitarian Awards Dinner. Four distinguished honorees were recognized with The California Conference for Equality and Justice’s 2015 Humanitarian Award.  These leaders were recognized for their advancement of the mission of CCEJ, their many civic contributions, and their lifelong commitment to humankind.

 

With more than 300 guests in attendance, over $160,000 was raised in support of the organization’s Human Relations Programs.

 

CCEJ also recognized Community Hospital Long Beach with the Building Bridges Award for their support of the vision of CCEJ and for valuing diversity and the worth of every individual.

The always elegant Humanitarian Awards Dinner began with entertainment provided by the Hawaiian trio – The Kolohe’s, playing during cocktails. The room was decorated in black, silver and purple and 40 of the past recipients were recognized and welcomed at the beginning of the program.

The evening opened with the Pledge of Allegiance by Thomas Le, past Intern from Long Beach Branch NAACP, followed by an inspiring opening thought from Gregory Sander, Sr. Pastor, the ROCK Christian Fellowship, Long Beach.

Dr. Mario Molina, President and CEO of Molina Healthcare Inc, Program Director for Jordan High School, closed the evening, with heartfelt remarks about the honorees humanitarian works and the importance and impact of CCEJ’s work in the community.

Thank you to all who attended, supported and donated.
