2017 Gabri Awards Gala

July 1, 2017

On June 11, our 2017 Gala brought together nearly 400 of Los Angeles’ most devoted champions of creative youth development at Paramount Pictures Studios. Andrew Kin, long-time supporter and leader, received the Gabri Award, and the Student Gabri Award was presented to Jahselyn Medina.

Everybody dance! students from Gabriella Charter Schools and our after-school program inspired and entertained guests by performing dance selections from Peter Pan and pieces specially choreographed for the Gala. We were also treated to a remarkable performance by Versa-Style Hip-Hop Dance Company.

We are tremendously grateful for Gala sponsors, whose kind generosity will help us to continue our transformative work in 2018 and beyond. Our sincere thanks to:
