The event will be held Tuesday, April 30 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Lakeview Room at Almansor Court, 780 S. Almansor Street, Alhambra, 91801.
This year’s honorees include the Alhambra Educational Foundation, Reyna Del Haro at Kaiser Permanente Foundation, SoCal Edison Foundation and Nicole Tilley at William H. Tilley Foundation.
