SDSA HONORS
Sunday, April 23rd, 2023

The SDSA proudly presented the return of the annual event formerly known as the SDSA Awards Luncheon, now named the SDSA Honors.

Held at the Universal Sheraton Garden & Ballroom on a beautiful spring day, and one of the warmer after this gloomy grey Los Angeles winter, members and guests were welcomed by a Garden Party atmosphere, where they were able to enjoy a cocktail and greet old & new friends and colleagues.

Raffle ticket sales were robust for the vast array of prizes donated by Business Members and displayed in the grand hall. Also on display in the hall was the
Community Outreach Committee Silent Art Auction featuring artwork created by SDSA members, with proceeds benefiting the non-profit organization
Set For Life.
 
Moving into the ballroom, the luncheon and Honors program began with the comedic rendering of our masters of ceremonies, Ellen Brill and Don Diers. Humanitarian and Hall of Fame awards, Business Member of the Year and Chair awards were presented. And, after a long three year wait due to COVID-19, the Earl Cooperman Lifetime Achievement Award was finally and happily presented to Mary Ann Biddle SDSA.
 
2023-24 Scholarship bestowments
Leslie Frankenheimer Scholarship, funded by Lennie Marvin's Prop Heaven
Marvin March Scholarship, funded by IATSE Local 44 & the SDSA Community
Robinson Royce Scholarship, funded by R.C. Vintage

Congratulations to all of those honored and awarded!
and...
THANK YOU
to the SDSA Honors co-chairpersons, Ellen Reede and Corri Levelle
and their dedicated committee and volunteers
and to our generous sponsors
