HOBY exists to motivate and empower individuals to make a positive difference within our society through understanding and action based on effective and compassionate leadership. To accomplish this, we strive to inspire and develop our community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation.
HOBY strives to not just be a one-time experience in students’ lives, but to provide opportunities to continue to engage them in service and leadership development. Through our Alumni Association and CLeW Programs, we empower alumni of our programs to bring together their peers in support of a cause that’s near to their hearts. On this page, we’ll try to showcase some examples of these projects.
On September 29th, 2012, HOBY Alumni participated in the 3rd annual L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade Stand event. This decadent chefs event brought together some of the best culinary minds from Los Angeles and across the country to the historic Culver Studios for a day of food, fun, and funds raised to fight childhood cancers. For the third year in a row, HOBY alumni served a crucial role as part of the volunteer team, making sure that the event ran smoothly and was a great success. Between ticket sales, donations, and a silent auction, the event raised over $500,000 for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
For information about this year’s event and the foundation, visit their website at http://www.alexslemonade.org/campaign/la-loves-alexs-lemonade. If you’re interested in volunteering with HOBY at the 2016 event, contact Chris Berry at email@example.com.
