Our two honorees have made extraordinary contributions toward local preservation in unique ways. Get a glimpse below and learn their full stories at the Gala!

Ernest Marquez, a descendant of early Mexican land grantees in the Santa Monica area, has compiled over 10,000 photographic prints, rare negatives and ephemera focused on the development of Santa Monica and Los Angeles starting in the 1860s. His collection is housed at The Huntington Library. He is also the author of several books, including the bestselling Santa Monica Beach: A Collector’s Pictorial  History.

Doris Sosin is a co-founder and long-time supporter of the Santa Monica Conservancy, as well as the founder of the North of Montana Neighborhood Association (NOMA), where she worked to restrict the size of mega mansions being built that were changing the character and density of the neighborhood. She served on the City’s Recreation and Parks Commission, where she conceived of and advocated for a long-range master plan, as well as on the city’s Urban Forest Task Force. 

Join us in what promises to be an unforgettable evening!
Proceeds from the gala support the Santa Monica Conservancy's educational programming and advocacy in Santa Monica. 

Sponsor the gala or congratulate our honorees with a tribute! Sponsorships and tributes are tax-deductible.
