Monday, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa comes to Beverly Hills to take a Walk with OUR Mayor – Lili Bosse. He might learn a little about accessibility and staying close to the people he governs – lessons for sure! The former LA Mayor is one of our State candidates for Governor and it will be an awesome opportunity to meet and greet this venerable icon of LA politics. And the walk will visit the Dina Collection and the Church of the Good Shepherd.
Monday’s first visit will be to the Dina Collection, where celebrity pawnbroker Yossi Dina dishes it up for Reelz TV on Beverly Hills Pawn. Truly an eclectic guy, Yossi Dina was born in Israel and grew up on a kibbutz. He served as an intelligence officer in the Israeli army and, early in his career, he sold jewelry door-to-door. He built his business from the ground up, with a mix of chutzpah, knowledge and hard work. He has earned every rung on his ladder of success, and his store is filled with wonderful things. (HINT: think HOLIDAY SHOPPING).
The Church of the Good Shepherd is Beverly Hills’ Catholic Community center. It is also the place where so many of the world’s most notable people held some of their most important life events. For example, Ronald Reagan, Rudolph Valentino, Rita Hayworth and Danny Thomas had their funeral masses there. Liz Taylor wed Conrad Hilton, Jr. there, and Jane Powell wed Geary Stephen there. It is an archival piece of the history of the nation, as well as a beloved monument of the City of Beverly Hills and a cherished home for the Catholic faithful.
Walk with the Mayor is part of Mayor Lili Bosse’s award-winning, internationally acclaimed #BHHealthyCity initiative.
