Girls Academy serves breakfast and much more

| December 4, 2019 | 0 Comments

PANCAKES were served by Jim Sullivan, dad to 6th grade Gala student, Piper.

GALA, Girls Academic Leadership Academy, held its first annual pancake breakfast fund raiser Nov. 16 at the school’s Olympic and West boulevards campus.

The event marked the first time the Academy has reached out to the surrounding community (of Brookside and Longwood Highlands), and the results were impressive, local resident Caroline Tracy told us.

Attendees came out to support the school and, in the process, enjoyed a delicious pancake breakfast and a shopping event.

LOCAL ARTISANS displayed products at the breakfast, including Amanda Koblin Foley, co-founder of Halo Heart Designs.


Several vendors displayed their products and services (many of them local artisans), and breakfast-goers were happy to get a jump on holiday shopping. Some 20 percent of the proceeds from all sales went to GALA. The all-girls LAUSD school was founded in 2016 by educator Dr. Elizabeth Hicks. The science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) school serves grades 6 to 12. For information, visit
