Every year Long Beach Heritage celebrates preservationists and the structures they have saved at our Annual Awards Benefit, our major fund raiser held aboard the historic Queen Mary. This gala event, in the Grand Salon, takes place in February. After a silent auction offering a variety of items from restaurant meals to objets d’art, over two hundred people dine on fine cuisine amidst the splendid Art Deco surroundings. Following dinner the achievements of ten outstanding awardees are portrayed in word and picture and the awards are presented. The 2016 Award Benefit was held on February 23rd.
