SANTA MONICA, CA (October 25, 2015) – The Irene Dunne Guild co-hosted the 2015 Caritas Gala in partnership with the Saint John’s Health Center Foundation board of trustees October 24 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Beverly Hills. The black-tie event honored Wendy Goldstein, executive vice president and head of urban A&R at Republic Records; civic leader Raylene and husband Bruce Meyer, president, Meyer Pacific; and philanthropist Merle Mullin and husband Peter Mullin, co-founder and chairman of the board of M Financial Holdings and chairman of Mullin │ Barens │ Sanford Financial.  The evening featured a special performance by DNCE which is fronted by Joe Jonas, with JinJoo, Cole Whittle and Jack Lawless.

Gala Dinner Chairs were Abbott L. Brown, Donna and David Elmore, S.H. Ho Foundation, Darcie Denkert Notkin and Shelby Notkin and Dominic Ornato.

Gala Chair Judy Beck and Dr. John Robertson, Chairman of Saint John’s Health Center Foundation Board of Trustees welcomed the more than 450 guests.  Beck enumerated the work of The Irene Dunne Guild, “supporting Saint John’s Health Center for 27 years with human and financial resources raising critical funds …supporting Saint John’s Emergency Department, Neonatal Intensive Care Units, the Child and Family Development Center and much more.”

Dr. Robertson thanked the honorees and gala guests as “those who give back to their community because they are compelled by a compassion for others and an honest desire to strengthen their community.”  He then welcomed Marcel Loh, Chief Executive of Saint John’s Health Center. 

“In 2015,” Loh said, “Saint John’s Health Center was cited as one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals, marking the ninth straight year the Health Center has earned this distinction,”  leading him to announce the Center’s new branding campaign, “A place you can believe in. 

Dr. Lawrence Piro, President and CEO of The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute, presented the 2015 Caritas Award to Wendy Goldstein, executive vice president and head of urban A&R at Republic Records. Goldstein’s focus has cultivated and bolstered the label’s presence within the urban realm. In 2013, she collaborated with Ariana Grande on the conception and release of her full-length debut, Yours Truly, which debuted #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded the #1 double-platinum smash, The Way. Under her tenure, Republic Records signed Bay Area hip-hop sensation Sage the Gemini, soul crooner Adrian Marcel and super producer DJ Mustard. In addition, she handled artist & repertoire duties for Enrique Iglesias, Mika and Colbie Caillat among others. A division of Universal Music Group, the world’s leading music company, Republic is home to an all-star roster of multi-platinum, award-winning legends and superstar artists including Ariana Grande, Black Sabbath, Florence + the Machine, Godsmack, Gotye, James Blake, Of Monsters and Men, Owl City, The Weeknd and Hailee Steinfeld
