Mihaylo College’s third annual celebration of Southern California family businesses was held at the Richard Nixon Library on March 21. Sponsored by the Center for Family Business and City National Bank, the event featured speaker Lynsi Snyder, president of In-N-Out Burger, who was interviewed by Mark Steines, co-host of “Home & Family” on the Hallmark Channel, on her experience as the third generation leading one of the Southland’s iconic food brands.
The center and City National Bank presented a $5,000 check to Snyder’s Foundation, Slave 2 Nothing, which seeks to end human trafficking.
