Habitat LA Highlights LCDQ’s Support at the 2017 Los Angeles Builders Ball®
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles was honored to highlight La Cienega Design Quarter for its continued support over the last five years at the annual Los Angeles Builders Ball@ at the Beverly Hilton on September 28, 2017.
LCDQ was represented by an entire table of members at the Builders Ball, which celebrated Habitat LA’s counterparts in the building and real estate industry, as well as partners and donors who support the organization’s mission of transforming the landscape of Los Angeles.
For LCDQ, the highlight of the night was being recognized as a Platinum sponsor. Since 2012, LCDQ has donated a total of nearly $200,000 to Habitat LA from the sale of VIP passes during LCDQ’s annual LEGENDS event. Additional Habitat LA honorees included Morley Builders, “Sugar” Ray Leonard and Luc Robitaille of the Los Angeles Kings. The evening featured live entertainment by En Vogue.
Gerry Bross, founding board member of LCDQ and Habitat LA board member, shared remarks at the VIP Reception on behalf of LCDQ. “I am proud of all that La Cienega Design Quarter has done for Habitat over the last several years, and couldn’t be prouder of what Habitat LA does for our community every day,” Bross said at the Builders Ball. “It is so important that we continue to give back to make LA an even better place. Seeing so many people at the event who feel the same way really feels good.”
Through volunteer labor, donated building materials, professional services and land, Habitat LA provides safe, sustainable and affordable homes for low-income families and individuals.

By 2020, Habitat LA will invest $100 million into revitalizing neighborhoods across LA and creating more access to affordable housing.
