Heroes & Living Legends Gala Approaches!

150 150 Open Gate International

We have drafted heavy-hitters to team up with us to help support our cause. When it comes to California influencers, not many can compare to Dr. Henry Nicholas III and his well-known stance for victim’s rights and educational philanthropy. We are pleased to announce that his foundation is the gala’s Title Sponsor.

An event of this magnitude is impossible without the fingerprints and touch of experienced and passionate individuals to make the vision come alive. Our volunteer committee is comprised of solid influencers in the Orange County and L.A. Areas: an amazing event planner at Disneyland, Danielle Kramer; Health guru and wife of World Series Champion, Chris Duncan – Mrs. Amy Duncan; Chief of Staff of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, Susan Kang Schroeder; Vice President of MVP Sports Group and Event Chair, Kimberly Woods Crossett. Their insight and hardwork is invaluable.

The theme of the event is influenced by the fun-loving fascination for Heroism and super heroes of our CEO, Deidre Pujols. The evening will highlight the amazing contributions of individuals who champion the cause of human rights and are heroes in reality. Of course, the Living Legend is Deidre’s record-breaking and 600 Home-Run hitting husband, Sir Albert Pujols – better known as The Machine or El Hombre. He has had an epic career in Major League Baseball and will easily take a first-class seat in the Hall of Fame. With Award-winning florist, Flowers by Cina, culinary surprises by our global Chef, Brent Southcombe, and hosts like Deidre and Albert Pujols, you can be certain it will be an evening of lifelong memories. With contributors like Prayers on The Side, Tenth Avenue North, and special performances, The Duke Hotel will transform into a magical evening of delight and goodwill.

Guests can expect access to rare trips, VIP experiences and and exclusive memorabilia during the live auction. There will be surprises around every corner and we can’t wait to entertain our honored attendees and guests.
