Lula Washington was selected to join the Reverend Cecil “Chip” Murray and the Toyota Motor Company for special recognition at the 2015 Torch Awards at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Marina Del Rey. All three will be saluted for work they have done in their various arenas.
Ms. Washington, founder of Lula Washington Dance Theatre, will receive the first-ever Adopt-The-Arts Award from the Legacy Ladies Inc., organization – which mounts the annual Torch Awards program.
Ms. Washington was chosen “because of her 35 years of transforming lives through the joy of dance,” said Jacqueline Castillo, President of Legacy Ladies. “Lula’s award winning choreography in such films as “Avatar” and “The Little Mermaid” movie puts her in a league of her own, worthy of recognition,” added Toni Counts Rose, a member of Legacy Ladies.
The Torch Awards are scheduled for Saturday, March 21, from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm. The Ritz-Carlton of Marina del Rey, is located at 4375 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, CA 90292.
“Each year we honor exceptional individuals that demonstrate the importance of giving back to our communities, and leaving a legacy of service,” added Ms.Castillo. “This year we decided to focus on the arts. Therefore we chose Lula Washington for Adopt-The-Arts”.
