Los Angeles, CA 90014

5 – 7:00 p.m.  Cocktail Reception

Tickets start at $2,500 per person (includes the cocktail reception)

A rare opportunity to tour Vibiana’s historic rectory building before dinner is available to a limited number of VIP dinner sponsors at a special per-person rate of $3,100 (in recognition of Linda’s 31 years of service to the community; includes cocktails, dinner, and a digital tribute ad). Limited spots available at this level.


The former Cathedral of St. Vibiana, now known simply as Vibiana, opened in 1876 and was designed by architect Ezra F. Kysor, one of Los Angeles’ first practicing architects.

Vibiana was one of the Conservancy’s toughest battles and greatest victories.  A decade-long preservation effort led by the Los Angeles Conservancy saved the deconsecrated cathedral from demolition and helped facilitate its adaptive reuse as the lovely event space where we gather to honor Linda and her leadership in preserving Los Angeles’ historic places for future generations.

The fundraising event will be held on Sunday, November 5, with a festive cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception followed by a sponsor dinner celebrating Linda’s leadership in saving this and many other of our region’s significant historic properties.
