Urban Compass Receives Overwhelming Support at 10th Anniversary Celebration
On April 30, 2015, Urban Compass celebrated their 10-year anniversary by hosting a gala, “The Best is Yet to Come,” at the Los Angeles River Center & Gardens. The gala honored Verbum Dei High School and the Water Buffalo Club for their continued support of Urban Compass. The Rat Pack-themed event included dinner and drinks, whiskey tasting, a cigar bar and a special performance from fourth grade student Ashley Ropon.
Partner Patrick McNicholas, co-founder and board member of Urban Compass, would like to extend his gratitude for the overwhelming amount of donations, pledges and support received from the Los Angeles community. “We appreciate those who attended the event in support of Urban Compass, not only at the gala but throughout its 10 years,” Mr. McNicholas comments. “We look forward to continuing our work in the community.”
Urban Compass, a non-profit organization serving the diverse youth in the economically challenged Watts community, focuses on providing mentorship from local high school and college students, core academic support, and engaging enrichment activities.
