The entire HOLA family mourns the passing of Los Angeles Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss. Dr. Buss and his family have been friends and generous supporters of HOLA for many years. In 2000, Dr. Buss was honored with the “Heart of LA” award at HOLA’s annual gala for his philanthropic efforts on behalf of disadvantaged youth and education. “Dr. Buss championed not only winning teams, but also many philanthropic causes addressing the education and development of underserved youth throughout our city. His philanthropy was directly felt and continues to be felt across all of our programs, in rooms and buildings that remind us daily how much he and his family truly care for every large and small corner of Los Angeles. We know that his spirit will live on through his family and the many inspirational memories that his efforts have given to us all. We will miss you Dr. Buss.” ~ Tony Brown, HOLA’s Executive Director. We send our deepest condolences to the Buss family.
