Chapman Partnership’s Illuminations Gala is an evening of dining, dancing and entertainment in support of the men, women and children who reside at the homeless assistance centers.
A 33-member Gala Committee is led by Event Co-Chairs, Marile and Jorge Lopez, Esq., and Gala Committee Chair Lucy Morillo, Esq.
The evening’s theme represents the shining light in the lives of the 5,000 men, women and families with children that Chapman Partnership serves annually. As a culmination of the work done throughout the year for the homeless, the event honors the many generous donors and volunteers who support the mission.
Alvah Chapman’s legacy lives on through the Alvah H. Chapman, Jr. Humanitarian Award. This award is given to an individual or organization that has been instrumental in leading the way in helping the homeless in our community. This year, Chapman Partnership will have the honor of naming Carlos Fernandez-Guzman, Chapman Partnership’s Board Chairman and CEO of Pacific National Bank, as the recipient of this award for his commitment and passion to help the homeless regain their dignity.
The black-tie event gets underway at 7 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner and dancing at 8 with special live entertainment, and 11 p.m. for the lively nextgen After-Party.
