Congratulations to all Nominees!

The Youth Center recently hosted the 10th Annual Ceremony for A Night Among the Stars in which eleven outstanding volunteers that have selflessly given their time and talents to charities were nominated by non-profits, schools, and community groups.

Selected nominees and their families will received an invitation to this special formal event. Youth nominees each received certificate of recognition from the U.S. Senate, The Los Alamitos City of Commerce, and a chance to win four $500 scholarships.
