Colburn Gala

April 22, 2018

Each year, we look forward to our annual Celebrate Colburn gala as an opportunity for the school to connect with our greater Los Angeles civic community, as we honor leaders who have made a difference. Celebrate Colburn is a chance to showcase our students’ and faculty’s outstanding work, and to demonstrate the impact of your support. We hope you will plan to join us for another spectacular evening of Colburn at its finest.
