Mark your calendar for an incredible evening of dinner, entertainment and inspiration, benefiting Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove’s programs and services that provide help and hope to more than 1,200 at-risk children and their families in Hollywood and South Los Angeles. A signature Hollywood event, this year promises to deliver even more of its celebrated spirit: For the first time the Norma Jean Gala will be held at the Hollygrove campus against the backdrop of the iconic Hollywood sign, which has overlooked the Hollygrove campus for decades.

Our main fundraising event of the year, the gala’s namesake is the Hollygrove campus’ most famous alumni: Norma Jean Baker, who benefited from our agency’s care as a child before she ultimately came to be known as the international icon Marilyn Monroe. Today, in our 150th year and in Marilyn’s spirit, we celebrate our impact as part of one of the largest, most comprehensive behavioral and mental health agencies in California. We do whatever it takes to heal the child – and the whole family – through a full range of programs providing complex mental health services and outreach for the entire family to support every aspect of that child’s life.

Join us and all our incredible supporters – who in the past have included Neil Patrick Harris, Busy Philipps, Matt Bomer, Colin Hanks, Peter Weller, Rob Reiner, George Lopez, Janie Bryant, Ian Ziering, Diane Ladd and many others, such as sponsors Houlihan Lokey, CB Technologies, RETS Associates, CAA, UTA, 3Arts, Wells Fargo, Granite Partners, ICG Advisors, the Johnny Carson Foundation, Paramount, Bryant-Reichling, O’Melveny & Myers, JAKKS Pacific, Juicy Couture, the California Wellness Foundation, among many others – and be a hero to the children and families we serve.

With your support of the Norma Jean Gala, you can help us continue our privately-funded programs that help create stability, strengthen the family and provide a greater chance of success for the child to become productive and thrive.

Your involvement will guarantee the event’s success, and serve as an important testament to our children and their families who are working to elevate their lives.
