Location PortalLMGA Business Member, the Location Portal generously hosted the meeting on the 30th floor of the AT&T building in downtown LA.  The 360-degree view from the penthouse served as a spectacular backdrop and was enjoyed by the sixty plus guild members and guests who attended.  Several lucky members won Power Bank portable battery chargers, courtesy of The Location Portal.

Following the meeting, we dined on delicious food and drink and grooved to the island tunes of Hawaiian musician, Kapali Long.  Members were so busy catching up with each other that we had to bring out the hook after ‘last call’ to the clear the building.

The Philanthropic Committee’s clothing drive for “Big Sunday” at the meeting yielded bags and bags of clothing and backpacks for the San Fernando Rescue Mission.  Thanks to Kristan Wagner for organizing the drive and to Tom Ybarra (Reel Waste & Recycling) for delivering everything to the mission.  Reel WasteBig thanks also to our members who took the time to donate to those in need.
