Tuesday evening, January 14th, Together LA hosted a beautiful dinner under the stars with Chief Equity Strategist at Nuveen and philanthropist, Bob Doll. The event was held at the home of Together LA founder, Brannin and Tanya Pitre. We had nearly 40 people in attendance. It was a diverse crowd including marketplace leaders in the areas of finance, investing, start-ups and business ownership. We also hosted non profit leaders from various organizations focused on integrating work and faith, justice, and mercy, as well as local pastors and professors of theology.
Some notable attendees include anti-trafficking activist and founder of Dressember Foundation, Blythe Hill. Jocelyn White founder of LA anti-trafficking organizaiton, Slavery No More, Tom Hseih, entrepreuner and CEO of the new start up, Float, Joanna Waterfall, Founder of Yellow Collective, and Jonathon Wu from Made to Flourish.
We enjoyed a vibrant discussion on investing, money, philanthropy, and other topics. More importantly, we heard a variety of interesting perspectives on how we use the tools of finance and investing to enhance human flourishing.
In addition, Bob Doll shared his top 10 predictions for 2020 and then took time for questions and answers and discussion at the end. Here are his predictions for the new year, and we are pleased to bring you a video interview with Bob Doll in the coming weeks.

The vision of Together LA is to bring marketplace leaders, pastors, nonprofit leaders, and others together to work together to answer the question, how do we love and serve the city of LA. And this event with Bob Doll was a reflection of the vision. We look forward to bringing more events like this to the city of LA this year in many different capacities.
