The honorees at the Los Angeles induction, which was held at Palihouse West Hollywood, included Kip Fulbeck, artist, filmmaker and author of The Hapa Project; Sonja Rasula, founder of Unique USA and CAMP; and Jorge Valencia, Executive Director & CEO of The Point Foundation.
Fulbeck, Rasula and Valencia were recognized for their individual talent and expertise, as well as their devotion to fostering opportunities for others. Through the Rémy Martin Circle of Centaurs, each honoree is sharing their knowledge by mentoring an up-and-coming member of their local community. In addition, Rémy Martin offered each honoree and mentee a grant of $2,500 and $1,500 respectively to bestow upon a charitable organization of their choice.
At the end of the evening, there was a surprise performance by local up and coming solo artist Myke Terry; the evening was hosted by design aficionado jeffstaple.
