The nonprofit center, which provides academic and recreational services and programs to at-risk youth in East Los Angeles, presents its Angel’s awards to individuals whose work supports the goals and values of the organization that include family, community, individual responsibility and citizenship.

Proceeds from the event benefit services offered by the youth center, including a summer camp,  aquatics, tutoring, boxing, arts, mentoring and family services in a safe environment for boys and girls 7 to 17.

Frank Villalobos, of Barrio Planners and a long-time supporter of the youth center, helped present the 2013 awards and at times seemed taken over by emotion as he saluted recipients for their outstanding work to support local youth, and the center.

The 2013 Life Achievement Award was presented to Judge Gregorio Roman.
