THE GRIO: Byron Allen’s Oscar Gala a festive celebration and fundraiser on Hollywood’s biggest night

Byron Allen knows how to throw a party.

His 2023 Oscar Gala, which took place on Sunday night at the fabulous Beverly Wilshire was a night to remember.

As previously reported by theGrio, the gala returned for the first time since 2020 and is a benefit for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, “one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers devoted to children and the No. 1 provider of pediatric medical care in Los Angeles County (the most populous in the nation),” with a reach that “extends even further.”
