12 May Junior League Enjoys Top-Notch Speakers at Fundraiser
The Junior League of Pasadena recently held its fourth annual “Simply Speaking” fundraiser at the La Cañada Country Club. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, dinner and entertainment.
The keynote speaker was Trina Turk, creator of her own lifestyle brand and owner of numerous signature boutiques. Other guest speakers were Megan Grano and Molly Erdman from the sketch comedy group “The BreakWomb.”
The Junior League honored Georgianna Erskine with the Nancy Reed Payne Award for more than 50 years of service. Also honored was Mary Donnelly-Crocker, executive director of Young and Healthy, recipient of the Community Impact Award for devoting 35 years to improving the lives of children in the community.
The event highlighted female entrepreneurs and business owners in keeping with the group’s vision of empowering women to break barriers. An estimated $45,000 was raised at the event to support JLP community programs that encourage women to follow their passions and dreams into successful careers.
