LACC Alum Mark Hamill expressed to the audience how proud he has always been to have LACC in his academic curriculum. “I’ve spoken at Oxford and Cambridge, and I always make a point of name-checking LACC” he said to applause.

Celebrating the 2016 LACC Gala!

On October 5th, the LACC Foundation held its 2016 Gala at the Beverly Hilton. We were privileged to celebrate a truly remarkable organization, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, for their donation of $2M to the College’s Cinema/Tv Department. We were also thrilled to have the opportunity to recognize Councilman Mitch O’Farrell for his extraordinary support of LACC and the Hollywood community.

The evening was hosted by NBC’s Natalie Morales and chaired by Mayor Eric Garcetti and NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt.

We thank them, our corporate sponsors, faculty, alumni, emeriti and students for helping us raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for LACC scholarships and other educational resources.

A big thanks to all of you who joined us for this special night!
