Esteemed local non-profit, Operation Project HOPE (Helping Other People Every day) hosted the 3rd annual Operation HOPE Awards luncheon at the Brookside Golf Club, in Pasadena, on Sunday, March 19.
For the last 3 years, OPH has honored the committed passionate individuals and corporations that went above and beyond the call of duty, giving so much more of themselves for the sake of the children in need. Its annual awards program recognizes the outstanding achievements of their dedicated volunteers and donors who make OPH projects and programs a success. OPH is pleased to honor those who demonstrate high ethical standards and exemplify the philanthropic spirit of their organization.
Amongst the honorees are a local Stevenson Ranch family, Melissa and Gilbert Alcazar, who are being recognized as our Distinguished Heroes for their dedication and generosity to Operation Project HOPE over the years. Originally from the Philippines, their humble beginnings were the foundation of selfless giving and ongoing support. The Alcazars recognize the importance of a good education and stand by our motto of “World Peace One Child at a Time.” Along with Melissa and Gilbert, their children Glyssa, Dennis, and Cecilia Joy will also be honored for their countless contributions to the advancement of OPH.
The mission of Operation Project HOPE is to refurbish and revitalize Los Angeles school campuses as well as revamp the school’s landscaping, making the learning environment more aesthetically pleasing and conducive to creating safe, supportive spaces where deserving students, staff and teachers alike can create and live their biggest dreams.
