MySafe:LA played host to its annual holiday party this week, and in addition to the home baked goodies, good company, and overall celebration, also presented two public safety awards, named after the organization’s late co-founder, Dean Cathey.

The MySafe:LA staff award was presented to Chris Nevil, for his diligent and tireless efforts to coordinate school presentations, older adult safety events, and to generally take on any project in the most positive and engaging way.
