Last Tuesday evening, December 7th, LAEDC members, community partners, and guests gathered under the stars of Grand Central Market’s outdoor patio. Golden Road Brewing generously sponsored the event, and guests enjoyed various craft beers and delicious bites. Bill Allen, President & CEO of the LAEDC, welcomed guests and encouraged folks to support small Los Angeles businesses this holiday season. Bill introduced Bobby Banahan, Brand Director of Golden Road Brewing, and shared a story of how LAEDC’s Business Assistance Program supported the expansion of Golden Road just a few years ago.
LAEDC Members and guests also received a Holiday Gift bag that included gifts from local Los Angeles businesses, including Pocket Square Clothing, Groundwork Coffee, Tapatio, and Golden Road Brewing. Thanks again to all our members, whose investment of time and resources makes our work truly collaborative and effective. Here are a few photos from the evening.
