Thanks to all who came out to our 2nd Annual City of Lights Awards Dinner!
Thanks to all who came out to support City of Lights at our fundraising dinner last month! The event was a huge success, with several live and silent auction items going up for bid and some awesome honorees. Lisa Sarno and Dianna Gomez accepted the Shining Light Award on behalf of Mayor Villaraigosa. LA Times columnist Hector Tobar and DREAM Activist Laura Torres were both honored for their great work with the bicycling community.
We also had some great speakers, with Jose Guzman, a volunteer on the 7th Street Bike Lane PSA, and Rafael Guerrero, a Bici Digna volunteer, touching on their experiences with City of Lights.
Thanks to the over 100 people in attendance who came out to support, and the countless others that have contributed to the work City of Lights does. Thank you so much for your support! Looking forward to seeing you at workshops and events throughout the year, and definitely at next year's dinner!
