The Wallis Ambassadors

The Wallis Ambassadors is a group comprised of community leaders and arts supporters who act as institutional advocates for the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. The members not only promote The Wallis throughout Beverly Hills and the greater Los Angeles area, but also serve as key influencers who champion our mission and programs.

Wallis Board Members, Ambassadors, staff, and members of The Wallis community can recommend candidates to The Wallis Ambassadors. Alternatively, prospects may apply directly to be considered.

Please click here to apply for candidacy or nominate someone. Nominations are accepted on an ongoing basis. 

To learn more, please contact Christine Bernardi, Senior Director, Development by emailing
