Rema Hort Mann Foundation

25th Anniversary Gala 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, it is with great pleasure that we announce

The Rema Hort Mann Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Gala and Art Auction Tuesday, November 1st, 2022

6.30pm to 10.30pm

The Gala will include cocktails, a seated dinner, and exciting silent and live auctions.

In November of 2022 we will be celebrating 25+ years of funding for the Rema Hort Mann Foundation. In the wake of Rema’s tragic passing from stomach cancer in 1995, the Rema Hort Mann Foundation was born, not only in remembrance of the things Rema held so near and dear to her heart, but with an overarching mission to take action and create positive change for others. The Rema Hort Mann Foundation now provides Quality of Life Grants which provide the means for hope, inspiration, and support to cancer patients and their families and provides grants to promising emerging artists.

The Rema Hort Mann Foundation started 2020 with the intention of celebrating our 25th year of meaningful funding for cancer patients and their families and promising emerging artists. This year’s plans changed significantly in the face of the pandemic and the Foundation has seen and experienced the tragic consequence of distancing cancer patients from their families and the devastating economic repercussions the emerging artist community has experienced.  This has certainly challenged the Foundation to be more creative in how we support and how funding to these particular sectors is needed more than ever. In this unprecedented year, we are committed to providing even more funding than we EVER have in our 25-year history in order to support the communities that mean so very much to us.

Since 1995, we have awarded over 2,000 Quality of Life Grants to cancer patients totaling over $3 million and over 600 unrestricted art grants to emerging artists totaling over $5 million.

Through the generosity of individual donors, artists, galleries, and organizations, such as The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, RHMF continues to increase its impact in the arts.
