The Wooten Center was honored to present our Vision Awards trophy to The California Endowment, the largest private health foundation in our state, for their support at our youth center and throughout California. See www.calendow.org for more information on their work building healthy communities. The dinner was held on May 26, 2016 at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel with over 120 guest.
