The Mission Advancement team has gone out to support Kathy Walton, a long time Verbum Dei donor and founding board member of Urban Compass, during the Urban Compass 15th Anniversary Gala. The event was held in Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, 135 North Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, on November 2, 2019.
Annie Levine, Individual Giving Officer, and Paul Hosch, Senior Vice President, both Mission Advancement staff attended the Urban Compass 15th Anniversary Gala. The fundraising goal for this event was $50,000, and the expected attendance was 250 people that night.
“I thought the Gala was fantastic,” said Levine. “Beyond honoring Kathy, it did a great job showcasing the amazing work that Urban Compass does – plus the food was delicious!”
“She has been an incredible asset to Urban Compass and so deserving of this honor,” said Levine. “Kathy is also a Verb volunteer at our annual galas and also a donor since 2008.”
“The event was great, wonderful celebration of her accomplishments” said Hosch.
Money was raised in both a live and silent auction, and many other nonprofit organizations were present as well.
