A Positive Spin

| February 17, 2015 | Parties

The night’s theme was Be the Hero Behind the Mask, and there were plenty of heroes filling the ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach for Serving People in Need’s annual gala—a masquerade ball, of course. The soiree netted a record $500,000 for the nonprofit, which aims to help individuals and families out of financial crisis. Among the guests in attendance: a former SPIN client who, just 18 months earlier, had been living out of his car with his wife and two children. He’s now employed, and the family is no longer homeless. And, as a gesture of thanks, he donated $1,000 to the cause. A hero, most certainly. –Photos by Ann Chatillon
