BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA.com) — Former President Bill Clinton delivered a foreign policy address in Beverly Hills Monday, a day after advising several thousands of youth on financial literacy and receiving an award for his support of jazz.
Clinton delivered the inaugural address in the Los Angeles World Affairs Council’s new series, “America’s Role in the world” at a sold-out luncheon at The Beverly Hilton.
The former president was busy Sunday. Clinton made the keynote speech at what organizers billed as the “World’s Largest Financial Literacy Education Event” at Galen Center. Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa also spoke at the event.
Later that night, Clinton received the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz’s Maria Fisher Founder’s Award at the All-Star Gala Concert at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
The award honors an individual who has made major contributions to the perpetuation of jazz music and the expansion of jazz and music education in schools around the world.
The Clintons have made several Southern California appearances the past few weeks. Bill Clinton rallied for Democratic Congressional candidates in Ventura County before the mid-term election last week, while his wife, Hillary – and a likely candidate for the 2016 presidential election – attended a Democratic fundraiser in Brentwood three weeks ago.
