11th Annual Cottonwood Awards Luncheon

May 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


The Cottonwood Awards Luncheon is a unique event that honors those who’ve made positive contributions to the city’s cultural and historical resources, including Rancho Los Alamitos. Hosted by the Rancho Los Alamitos Foundation (RLAF), the event helps promote and support the Rancho’s educational programs and cultural preservation efforts. It is a much-anticipated opportunity for Long Beach community and business leaders to gather to enjoy one another’s company, have a traditional ranch-style barbecue lunch, celebrate the year’s honorees, and help raise funds for the
Rancho’s important work. And it all happens in a setting alive with history — the Rancho’s barnyard lawn.
