Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles to Host 

‘The Big Night In’ Virtual Gala 

Honoring Kenya Barris, Jane Cha Cutler
 and Richard and Demi Weitz


On September 17, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles (BBBSLA) will host ‘The Big Night In’ virtual gala honoring producer, writer and director Kenya Barris, producer Jane Cha Cutler and partner at William Morris Endeavor and father/daughter creators of RWQuarantunes, 
Richard and Demi Weitz


 The event will kick off with a DJ set by D-Nice during the 5:30 PM PT / 8:30 PM ET virtual red carpet arrivals, followed by the program at 6:00 PM PT / 9:00 PM ET. 


Netflix will serve as the Presenting Sponsor of ‘The Big Night In’ gala, which benefits youth facing adversity from underserved communities in Los Angeles by providing and supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships.


Honorees will receive their awards virtually during the ceremony. Barris will be honored with the Defender of Potential Award, Cutler will receive the 2020 Sherry Lansing Award, and Richard and Demi Weitz will be honored with the Walt Disney Philanthropists of the Year Award.


“During a period in our collective history where human connection is at an all-time low, we are incredibly grateful for all of our allies who believe in the power of mentorship and work with us to keep kids connected. We celebrate the big, bold impact of this year’s honorees – Kenya Barris, Jane Cha Cutler and Richard & Demi Weitz – and we thank them for their incredible support of the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Lauren Plichta, President & Chief Executive Officer, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles.


This year, the digital ceremony will be held in line with COVID-19 restrictions. The events of the past few months – both COVID-19 and the tragic injustices against Black communities – have disproportionately affected the youth that BBBSLA serve, 95 percent of whom are youth of color. BBBSLA has embraced its role not only as “Defenders of Potential” of the youth they serve, but also “Defenders of Futures” for every young person in Los Angeles.


‘The Big Night In’ gala is presented by Netflix. Other co-sponsors include Amazon Studios, The Chuck Lorre Family Foundation, City National Bank, IMAX, Mar Vista Investment Partners and Union Bank.
