Angeleno joined together with November cover star Sandra Lee and BBVA Compass to celebrate the magazine's annual "The Give Back" issue. Held at Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills' restaurant Culina, the intimate event honored the top altruists in the City of Angels.
Following Group Publisher Chris Gialanella's warm welcome speech, Lee took to the stage to award her uncle Bill Singlehurst for his guidance and inspiration throughout her life; BBCA Compass California CEO Everett Orrick for his work to create opportunities for affordable living; and Thalé Blanc founder Deborah Sawaf whose The Happy Project which raises funds for The Make-A-Wish Foundation. If that wasn't enough, Angeleno and BBVA Compass gave top honors to Lee who was surprised with the Altruist of the Year award.
To conclude the spirited affair, guests meandered through the gorgeous patio which was overflowing with florals from Zen Craft and filled with food stations that offered up everything from truffle risotto to bruschetta and grilled octopus. Giving back never felt so good.
