Earvin “Magic” Johnson will be honored by Habitat For Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) at the Los Angeles Builders Ball this year!
According to Look To The Stars, Magic will be recognized for his work with Canyon Johnson Urban Funds, Magic Johnson Enterprises and Guggenheim Partners, in order to build more communities in the city of Los Angeles over the years. Other honorees include Bank of America, Bernards, and Gary and Sarah Siegel Magness.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Habitat LA, an organization that is doing great work addressing a critical need in Los Angeles,” Magic said. “Habitat LA is building stronger communities and hope for a brighter future.”
Over the past six years, Habitat LA has invested more than $100 million into neighborhoods across greater Los Angeles to improve housing stock, increase the local tax base and provide a stable environment for children, which research indicates leads to higher academic achievement.
“With the support of sponsors, volunteers and our homeowners we have helped nearly 4,000 Angelenos improve their lives through affordable housing over the past 25 years,” said Erin Rank, Habitat LA President and CEO. “We believe the time is right to build on this momentum by joining forces with like-minded partners such as Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson, Bank of America, Bernards and The Gary D. Magness Foundation to make an even greater impact over the next five years.”
The LA Builders Ball will take place on Wednesday, October 14 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel from 6pm-9pm. Sponsorships are available now here. Proceeds from the event will continue to go to building better communities and creating educational opportunities for children.
Congratulations to Magic for this great honor!
