As pioneers in the South Bay, Las Primeras was established in 1950 by a group of altruistic women. Many organizations in our area were fostered through the guidance of our first members.
Throughout our existence, Las Primeras has assisted many community-based groups integral to our local residents. Often, these groups operate on shoestring budgets, or are small start-up companies. Regardless of size and overall budgets, we advocate and provide funds to these organizations whose missions and/or programs offer guidance, acceptance, education, patience, empathy, and healing
Today, we honor our founding members and mentors in continuing our volunteer efforts, and community awareness. Our annual gala remains the manner in which we primarily raise funds. Our distribution to worthy beneficiaries changes year by year, thus fulfilling our desire to remain relevant to the needs of our residents and local organizations.
