14th Annual Gateway L.A. Concert Luncheon


It was a wonderful afternoon at the LAX Marriott!   Great food, a room full of friendly faces, an LAPD toy drive, and a spectacular show of vocal talent by the Angel City Chorale, the multi-generational chorale that recently won top honors on America’s Got Talent.

The crowd was wowed as the chorale went through a repertoire composed of Christmas carols, holiday classics, and pop tunes, including an imaginative arrangement of the Toto classic Africa.

And to top it off, proceeds from the event went to the following local charities!

  • Airport Marina Counseling Service – Airport Marina Counseling Service (AMCS) is a private, non-profit, outpatient mental health clinic that has been serving the greater LAX region since 1961.
  • Badge of Heart – A wonderful turkey giveaway program for local families in Venice, Mar Vista, Palms, Del Rey and Westchester. These low-income families and victims of crimes will be sponsored by Los Angeles Police Officers assigned to the Pacific Division area and partners from local schools, churches and youth groups.  Founded by LAPD Officer Ken Lew.
  • EmpowerTech – Using the wonders of modern assistive technology, EmpowerTech helps individuals with physical and developmental disabilities by providing them with computerized wheelchairs, communication equipment, etc.
  • Westchester Family YMCA – Youth & Government Program – promoting leadership skills, character values, and civic engagement in teens.
  • Los Angeles Fire Department Station No. 95
