This week, Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA), an organization committed to advancing the lives of youth in Los Angeles through free after school academic, art and athletic programming, honored actor Roselyn Sanchez, Wells Fargo and posthumously architect Stephen Kanner during the organization’s annual Holiday of The Heart Gala. Held at Montage Beverly Hills, the gala celebrated HOLA’s distinguished friends and colleagues and their commitment to the association.
Serving as a wonderful inspiration to HOLA’s youth and an incredible voice for the children growing up in the heart of Los Angeles, Roselyn Sanchez was presented the Heart of LA Award. Roselyn attended with her husband Eric Winter and graciously accepted the award. She told us: “I believe in HOLA. It’s a very special place. I am honored to be considered part of the HOLA family because of the amazing contributions and opportunities they provide to the youth in our communities. I look forward to coming back and watching the continued growth of HOLA’s campuses and it’s students.”
