Mike C. Manning and Allie Gonino Host Benefit To Support Homeless Youth Programs of Los Angeles LGBT Center

Mike C.Manning and Allie Gonino
On Saturday February 7, Mike C. Manning (Cloud 9, Youthful Daze) and Allie Gonino (The Lying Game) hosted a charity benefit in support of the homeless youth programs of the Los Angeles LGBT Center. It was also an opportunity to meet the Young Professionals Council and learn more about how the YPC helps support youth programs at the Center.

With a full house on hand, more than a quarter of the people in attendance made a large donation to help homeless children, signed up for tours, and/or became monthly donors to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

Among the 230 "Have a Heart for the Center" attendees were Kristen Alderson (General Hospital), Brittany Underwood (Youthful Daze), Lachlan Buchanan (The Young and the Restless), Kyle Schuneman, former Congressman and producer Mike Huffington, and Allie Gonino's band members from The Good Mad. The event also featured a musical performance by Eli Lieb.
