Hero's and Shero's Award Dinner
Community Build, Inc. celebrated three decades of providing “a culture of care” by paying tribute to community heroes and sheroes at their 30th Anniversary Celebration. Wren Brown, Ebony Repertory Theatre co-founder and Producing Artistic Director, was the master of ceremony for the inaugural event which was held at the LAX Sheraton Hotel on Oct. 27.
“In the aftermath of the 1992 Civil Unrest, Community Build co-founder Brenda Shockley did not look for her community to be rescued, she rolled up her sleeves and got to work,” Community Build President Robert Sausedo said. “With financial support from the grand dame of the 43rd Congressional District and our champion in congress, the honorable Maxine Waters, Brenda was able to secure property, structure programs and provide services to a community in need. And for the past 30 years, we’ve continued to provide a culture of care for the community.”
