Glendale’s Path Achieve celebrated its fifth anniversary in style. Its gala celebration, “Breaking News,” was held on Saturday (Sept. 10) at the ABC7 Broadcast Center in Glendale. More than 400 supporters dipped into appetizers and wine tasting on the back lot surrounded by dozens of looming blue news vans. For one night only, event sponsors took on the titles of news director, executive producer, producer or news writer, based on their level of sponsorship.
Path Achieve’s Board Chair Nick Lam described the organization’s humble roots — a Glendale warehouse transformed into a Homeless Access Center and emergency shelter. Today, Path Achieve helps more than 1,000 homeless people a year.
As twilight fell on the back lot, guests gathered for dinner in a mammoth sound stage. Lights were dimmed to create as intimate a setting as possible. Gleaming warmers with servers behind them stood ready to provide guests with a sumptuous dinner buffet.
