Spirit of Life Celebration

The Los Angeles Real Estate & Construction Industries Council presents:
 
The 2015 Spirit of Life® Celebration
honoring
Victor J. Coleman
Chairman & CEO
Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc.
 
City of Hope’s Los Angeles Real Estate and Construction Industries Council recognizes industry leaders each year for their outstanding professional and philanthropic contributions at the Spirit of Life Award Celebration.
 
The Spirit of Life Award is presented to individuals who exemplify the ideals and values that have guided City of Hope for a century, and whose professional and humanitarian accomplishments are worthy of celebration.

Recipients of this prestigious award include a broad range of leaders from the world of business, entertainment, science and philanthropy. What connects them is a shared commitment to elevating the human condition and a profound belief in the power of each individual to effect change.

The Spirit of Life, by its very name, represents the intangible qualities that make an individual’s life worthy of admiration: their generosity, their ability to inspire and their desire to make a difference in the world.
 
City of Hope extends its heartfelt congratulations and gratitude to its Spirit of Life honorees past and present.
