Will Rogers Awards Gala recognizes local achievements

Priscilla Hopper staff writer

The Will Rogers Awards Gala was hosted at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills on Nov. 9, 2016. Nominees and spectators walked the red carpet to make an appearance before entering the dinner and awards show.

Will Rogers was a respected writer, actor and social commentator. The award recognizes the achievements of Beverly Hills real estate institutions and businesses.


The gala promoted the restoration of parks around the city like the Beverly Hills Garden Park and was hosted by Vicki Smith, regional education director of La Mer Skin Care.


“You have to maintain, and when you’ve been gifted with such a beautiful city, whether it’s a home or a garden or a park, you have to take care of it,” Smith said.

Proceeds from the event were contributed to the City of Beverly Hills Community Charitable Foundation.

“If it was not for Beverly Hills residents’ businesses, our community would not be as well known as it is. Celebrating our community and bringing people together to raise money for the restoration of our parks helps to benefit everyone in the city,” junior Sophia Martin said after reporting on the event for KBEV6.
