Jona Goldrich, a Los Angeles developer, will become the eighth recipient of Los Angeles County Scouting's "Good Scout" Award Tuesday at a luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
The award is presented annually by the Los Angeles County consortium of the five Boy Scouts of America councils: Los Angeles, Van Nuys, Claremont, Pasadena and Glendale, to a professional who best exemplifies the character and qualities promoted by the Scouting movement.
Goldrich is president and chief executive officer of Goldrich & Kest Industries, Culver City, which has been responsible for development and construction of more than 27,000 housing units for all income levels and 2.5 million square feet of office and commercial space.
Goldrich escaped the Holocaust at the age of 14 and immigrated to the United States from Israel in 1953. Stanley Black of KB Management Co. is chairman of the tribute luncheon. Previous winners were Clair L. Peck Jr., J. Douglas Pardee, John W. Bernard, Nathan Shapell, Ray A. Watt, Ernest W. Hahn and George M. Pardee.
