Mahalo from MHALA! We invite you to join us for a special Hawaiian-themed Golden Ducky Awards Celebration! We’re rolling out the red carpet to recognize the achievements of MHA Village members – those we serve who are recovering from mental illness - who have reached significant milestones in their lives.
This year, we’re congratulating 35 remarkable individuals who are graduating from our program. They all prove that it is possible to lead rewarding lives as co-worker, family member, neighbor, volunteer and friend – in short, as participating, contributing members of our community.
We will also celebrate community leaders who support our efforts and strengthen community awareness and involvement. This year, we’re pleased to honor The Downtown Long Beach Associates Board and Staff, Long Beach Business Owner Holly Santos, and The Staff of The Lodge Barber Shop.
Everyone is also welcome to join us for our pre-party festivities from 2:30 until 5pm! Relax in an island paradise with cool refreshments and the soothing sounds of the Islands drifting from the hands of local Long Beach ukulele bands. Enjoy Polynesian dancers and other festivities as we prepare to celebrate local heroes and some accomplished members of the MHA Village community!
Events are free and open to the public! The awards ceremony and pre-party will be held Friday, June 3rd at First Christian Church, 440 Elm Avenue in Long Beach, at 5 p.m. We hope you will be able to join us for an inspiring evening. RSVPs are appreciated for V.I.P. seating to Rhonda at 562-285-1330, extension 252.
