The American Red Cross hosted its Annual Humanitarian Celebration at the Skirball Cultural Center on Friday, March 9. In attendance was a sold-out crowd of more than 500 guests, including some of Los Angeles and the nation’s leading philanthropists, elected officials, business leaders, and celebrities. This year’s celebration honored Humanitarian of the Year, Dr. Laurence E. Paul; Humanitarian Company of the Year, California Resources Corporation; and Humanitarian Organization of the Year, the Los Angeles Chargers for their distinguished dedication and support of the American Red Cross.  

Attendees enjoyed a live auction and live entertainment from singer Judith Hill. The evening concluded with an after party where guests danced to music provided by DJ Flobito while enjoying fabulous desserts and festivities.

The 2018 Humanitarian Celebration was presented by the Walt Disney Company and supported through generous gifts from many local families and businesses, including Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Westfield.
