Grow is a creative movement that is aiming to pool the creative resources of our community to help identify, and then meet the needs of Long Beach—one need at a time. The Grow team believes that cities are like people, comprised of both tangible and intangible qualities, when a city’s needs are met, it will thrive. Founder Caitlin Cutt says, “With Grow, we want help turn creativity into change. A benefit concert is one great way of doing that, and that’s where we’re starting, and we’re really excited to explore other avenues of combining local Art and philanthropy within this city.” For more information on Grow, please contact Caitlin Cutt at (714) 369 7924, or at http://www.growlb.com/.
About Leadership Long Beach:
Leadership Long Beach was founded in 1989 by some of our community’s most influential and visionary stakeholders. These founders envisioned the formation of a civic improvement program that would serve the community by developing and motivating leaders on issues important to the future and sustainability of our city. The leaders developed by the Leadership Long Beach program have shared experiences, associations and values that enable them to set imaginative, yet realistic goals, and achieve them through coordinated and effective strategies. Leadership Long Beach has three principled leadership programs – Leadership Long Beach Institute, Youth Leadership Long Beach and Executive Quick Start – and also offers continual leadership and networking opportunities throughout the year.
