On June 8th, CSPF welcomed over 350 guests to Will Rogers State Historic Park for our Golden Poppy Awards Gala. Located in Pacific Palisades, Will Rogers SHP set the stage for a magical evening under the stars.
Dressed in festive vintage attire, attendees dined on fabulous fare created by Patina; enjoyed lively music provided by the Mo Emmett Band and Art Deco and His Society Orchestra; and had their pictures taken with Will Rogers. Elizabeth Goldstein, CSPF President, new state parks director Major General Anthony Jackson, USMC (Ret.), and awardee Peter W. Mullin provided inspiring presentations and encouraged guests to contribute to both the fund-a-need live auction to support the Park Champions program, and to continue to stay involved in advocating for and supporting our treasured state parks.
The Golden Poppy Awards are presented to individuals, corporations or foundations for their extraordinary contributions to protect and enhance state parks and the California environment. CSPF and state parks were thrilled to honor and thank the following Golden Poppy Awardees this year:
Peter W. Mullin
Thomas J. Long Foundation
S.D. Bechtel Jr. Foundation
City of Oxnard
County of Ventura
CSPF supporters and partners helped make our Golden Poppy Gala a huge success by raising more than $450,000 for this year’s event.
