On Saturday, June 5, 2021, over 250 guests gathered for Foothill Family’s annual gala, under strict COVID guidelines on the sprawling greens of Annandale Golf Club after 15 months since the last gala.
The signature cocktail, “The Firefly” on passed trays, and a harpist, provided by Pasadena Symphony & Pops, greeted each guest as they entered the Annandale Golf Club in beautiful Pasadena. The evening’s Emcee John Cervenka welcomed guests before turning the stage over to this year’s Gala Chairs, Becky Chuen and Wende Lee. The evening also featured both silent and live auctions along with an after-party featuring live music by Sister City and showcasing a coffee cart provided by Arrvo Coffee, a champagne bar, whiskey tasting by Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, and decadent chocolate bites.
Foothill Family proudly honored our Community Heroes, who were recognized for their leadership and herculean efforts in keeping our community safe, informed, and connected during the pandemic, in six categories: Dr. Sid Kumar, MD, Kaiser Permanente, Health; Blanca E. Rubio, California State Assembly, Public Service; Luis Patiño, Univision, Media Coverage; Teri Muse, Waste Management, Community Service; Connie Aguilar, Options for Learning, Education; Wendy Mour, Foothill Family, Mental Health during this year’s annual gala, The Enchanted Garden.
Thanks to the exceptional planning of the Gala Committee led by Chairs Becky Chuen and Wende Lee, an Enchanted evening was enjoyed by all!
