We are thrilled to announce that Serena Williams will be honored at our upcoming Imagine Ball on Sunday, September 23! A 23-time Grand Slam champion, Serena is widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes alive.
Imagine LA has been working with the Compton-based Yetunde Price Resource Center, founded by the Williams sisters, which helps families and youth who've been affected by senseless violence. We are beyond impressed with their work as well as how much Serena is doing to shine a spotlight on working moms as she navigates first-time motherhood herself and cannot wait to formally honor her on the 23rd.
We are also delighted that Good Day LA Host Rita Garcia will be our emcee.Musical talent -- always exceptional -- will be announced shortly, and Melissa Nielsen of Charity Angels will be auctioning one-of-a-kind experiences and jewelry.
We'll be back at the intimate Peppermint Lounge in West Hollywood. Capacity is very limited so act swiftly. Visit imagineball.org for sponsorships, tickets and all the details ASAP.
We hope you'll join Serena, Rita and all of us to empower hundreds of families to break the cycle of homelessness, trauma and poverty -- to thrive!
