The Foundation’s primary mission is to provide college scholarships
for children who have lost a parent to breast cancer.


We have a supporter who runs the LA Marathon each year to benefit Pearls of Hope. He is running again this year to bring awareness to, and raise funds for Pearls of Hope. To pledge your support for Danny and Pearls of Hope, click here.

We thank everyone who made our Golf Classic and Awards Gala a huge success this year. Our work continues and your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.

This year, the Gala was held at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, CA.

Our Keynote Speaker was Robert O. Klein.

Mr. Klein is a former USC Trojans, Los Angeles Rams and San Diego Chargers football player. He is currently the President and CEO of Saint John’s Health Center Foundation where he oversees the overall management of the Saint John’s Health Center Foundation and the John Wayne Cancer Institute philanthropic development efforts. Bob’s wife, JoAnn is a two-time breast cancer survivor.

Our Honorary Speaker and Medical Advisor, Dr. Becky Miller provided an update on new discoveries in cancer research.



The recipient of our Pearls of Hope Champion Award was Bonnie Rubin and 1st Century Bank in recognition of their outstanding service to the community and invaluable commitment to helping provide scholarships to children who have lost a parent to breast cancer.
