Guests will experience a themed evening along the Mediterranean at Foothill Family’s upcoming gala, Rendezvous on the Riviera, on Saturday, May 21, at Pasadena’s Annandale Golf Club.
Guests can expect to enjoy the twinkling lights and garden setting as they sip cocktails with friends, bid on auction items and help raise critical funds for Foothill Family’s programs.
Foothill Family’s annual gala is the largest fundraiser held by the organization each year to raise unrestricted funds in support of mental health services and early childhood development programs.
Through client care, outreach, and community education opportunities, Foothill Family reaches nearly 20,000 children and families each year to support those who battle mental illness; have suffered from abuse, trauma and violence; or are challenged with behavioral health or developmental concerns. All proceeds from the event benefit Foothill Family’s life-changing programs.
“It’s been another challenging year for so many in our community and getting the support they need is crucial. This event raises necessary support for our work in the community. We are thrilled to have the talented Marie Levenick and Melissa Wu as our gala co-chairs and Liz Hall as our auction chair,” said Steve Allen, Foothill Family chief executive officer.
“We are exceedingly grateful for their leadership and for the steadfast commitment of the Friends of Foothill Family, who know how to throw a phenomenal party while going above and beyond to raise critical funds in support of our mission.”
Festivities will begin with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live music and a silent auction featuring mobile bidding. Guests can bid on any number of unique items, ranging from luxurious home goods to travel packages for the whole family, or special date nights.
