It was a day of fun and philanthropy at the 23rd Annual Keyes for Kids Teddy Bear Golf Classic on September 22 to benefit the children of The Help Group. The generosity and friendship of everyone who supported this year’s Classic made it a resounding success!

Capping off a great day of golf at the Lockton Insurance Awards Dinner, The Help Group presented its Help Fore Children Humanitarian Award to Jonathan Pollack in recognition of his remarkable spirit of philanthropy and his commitment to giving back.

As a way of thanking the Pollack Family for their support and commemorating the special occasion, Dr. Firestone announced the naming of The Pollack Family Innovation Lab in the new education building in Culver City. “We are so grateful to the Pollack’s for extending their hand of friendship to the children of The Help Group, and to Jonathan for scoring a hole-in-one for the kids,” she said. “The lab will be giving young people cutting-edge, 21st century skills in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.”
