City Gala takes place on the evening of the Academy Awards as part of The Annual City Summit & Gala weekend of events.
Now in its 5th year, the City Gala has a vision to advance community through humanitarian activities and events. The City Gala assists startup, non-profit organizations by working with their founders and bringing influential humanitarians to the City Gala events to speak, host, and promote causes related to philanthropic endeavors such as feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, liberating and rehabilitating victims of human trafficking, education and mentorship programs, and health and wellness initiatives.
The Gala has supported growing start-ups such as Feed A Billion, Journey’s Dream, and the Firelife Foundation, as well as more established organizations such as THORN, INROADS, Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, Just Keep Livin, and the Jenesse Center, among others.
2020's Gala features Special Guest Speaker JOHNNY DEPP who joins our legacy of honorees and special guests that have included icons in business, entertainment, and philanthropy, such as Matthew McConaughey, Sir Richard Branson, Halle Berry, John Travolta, James Cameron, Charlize Theron, Quincy Jones, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Buzz Aldrin, Les Brown, John Paul DeJoria, Zendaya, Colin Farrell, Jane Seymour, Mario Lopez, Wesley Snipes, Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul), and Frank Shankwitz (Founder, Make A Wish Foundation).
On February 9th at The Burbank Marriott Convention Center, the City Gala will hold its 5th annual event to promote and support chosen organizations through the Global Unity Foundation.
The City Gala begins at 7PM and the dress code is formal.
