The 2019 Goodwill, Serving the People of Southern Los Angeles County, Celebrate the Power of Work Awards Dinner is just around the corner. Mark your calendars and get ready for a night full of inspiration.

The awards event is organized each year to honor a special community leader as well as inspiring individuals who now lead successful careers through Goodwill SOLAC’s job programs.

The awards event also will recognize an Employer of the Year for its role in hiring graduates and other participants of Goodwill SOLAC’s job programs. In addition, a Community Partner of the Year will be awarded.

Popular radio personality Pat Prescott of 94.7 The Wave will host the event, which will be attended by local community and business leaders as well as the general public. Attendees will be able to peruse the event’s silent auction before taking their seats for the dinner and awards program.

The awards dinner will be held at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. All proceeds from this memorable event will go toward funding Goodwill SOLAC’s mission: providing job training and placement programs for individuals facing barriers to employment.
