11th Annual Home Run for Kids
Upward Bound House presented the 11th Annual Home Run For Kids, a Brentwood community fundraiser in West Los Angeles. The event was action-packed featuring a DJ, MC Olivia Hill, fitness warm-ups and cool-downs, an expo area to learn about UBH and receive freebies, the Carlthorp Children's Choir leading us in the National Anthem, the 5K main event, the Kiddie K run, the beloved bounce house for the kids, and more.
The 2023 Home Run for Kids event was a resounding success, raising over $86,000 for UBH, enabling us to provide housing for 250 children and their parents.
The Inaugural Angel Awards
In October 2023, we inaugurated the annual Upward Bound House Angel Awards by honoring Carlthorp School. The event, hosted by acclaimed actor Brett Cullen, took place at a luxurious Brentwood residence. The evening included cocktails, a sumptuous sit-down dinner, the award presentation, and the highlight of the evening: an inspirational account from Chyenne, a UBH graduate.
