BCC is honored to have Mayor-elect Eric Garcetti as our special guest at the 2013 BCC Awards Brunch on Sunday, June 2, 2013.  Garcetti, the first ever Jewish Mayor of Los Angeles (and also LA’s youngest Mayor since Arthur Harper in 1906), is a longtime city councilman, and on May 21, won the Mayoral election. He will be sworn into office on July 1, 2013.

The BCC Annual Awards Brunch on June 2nd will mark Garcetti’s first Jewish event as Mayor-elect.
