The LA Sports Awards, in its 16th consecutive year, is an annual star-studded awards dinner and gala that celebrates the best of the year in sports in the greater Los Angeles Area. Presented by the Los Angeles Sports Council Foundation 501(c)(3), the event recognizes the top sports moments and personalities of the year. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Council's most important program, Ready, Set, Gold!, a community health, fitness and social and emotional learning program that promotes healthy and active lifestyles to children in Southern California schools.
