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.”
Allen, CEO of theGrio’s parent company Allen Media Group, has hosted the gala since 2017 and has raised millions for the hospital. Throughout the evening, a special QR code was shown on the many screens alongside the Oscars broadcast, and guests could use the code to make donations to the hospital right from their seats.
