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.

The Heroes event recognizes individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations that have demonstrated exceptional leadership in the Hollywood community. This year, the program will honor four exceptional leaders who have made a difference in the Hollywood community. The Heroes of Hollywood Event Committee is proud to recognize the achievements of the following 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.

Entertainment journalist and television host of Entertainment Tonight, Nancy O’Dell, will be honored with the Mary Pickford Award.

The event has saluted over 150 Hollywood leaders – through its predecessor, the Women of Distinction Awards – and has raised over $800,000 since 1993.

The event is attended by over 300 dignitaries, community leaders, and special guests and is a premier networking opportunity.
