A small army of volunteers transformed ALCHEMY‘s anything-but-ordinary printing facility (generously offered free of charge to the Southern California Counseling Center) into a magical space to share and celebrate.


Board members, volunteers, counselors and community supporters enjoyed a Silent Auction, dinner, drinks and a bit of dancing.


Marianne Diaz introduced Michael Manzo, who provided a stirring account of his decade’s long journey with the Center: from RAGE Group participant, to Community Counselor Course graduate, to paraprofessional facilitator.


The energy was electric as Judy Belk, president and CEO of The California Wellness Foundation introduced the evening’s honoree: Elisabeth Hallman, MBA, RN, member of the Board of The California Wellness Foundation and a leader in healthcare innovation, for the incredible impact her work has had on individuals, and communities throughout the state.
