Harlyne J. Norris will be honored as “Sage of the Year 2001” at the 5th Annual Salvation Army Sage House Gala on Saturday, June 2, at the Hilton Hotel in San Pedro, Calif.

Mrs. Norris is well known for her many philanthropic involvements, including chair of the Board of Trustees of the Norris Foundation, Trustee of the University of Southern California and advisory board member of the USC/Norris comprehensive Cancer Center. As a patron of the arts, she is also recognized for her contributions to the community through cultural enrichment programs.

A long-time Peninsula resident, she is active with the Palos Verdes Art Center and the Huntington Library, and is a benefactor of the new center named in her behalf, the Harlyne J. Norris Pavilion at the Norris Center for the Performing Arts in Rolling Hills Estates, Calif.

The evening will include a reception, live and silent auctions, dinner, entertainment by the Norris Chorus for the Norris Center for the Performing Arts, The Salvation Army Brass Band, and the presentation of the Sage of the Year award.

“Proceeds from this gala event will benefit the Army’s Sage House,” said San Pedro Corps Officer Capt. Raymond Erickson-King. Sage House is a state licensed adult day care center that serves the needs of frail older adults who can benefit from supervised hours of care outside the home and who enjoy social interaction with their peers in a safe, friendly and structured environment.
