Dressed to the nines, donors, friends and staff of Five Acres celebrated their annual gala, “Starry Starry Night,” at a private estate in Pasadena.
Co-chaired by Trish Gonzales and Nicole Rasic, the event of nearly 300 guests took place poolside with views overlooking the Arroyo and on the sprawling lawn of the estate.
This year’s event included hors d’oeuvres and a seated dinner, cocktails, an auction and live entertainment by the ’80s and ’90s cover band Past Action Heroes.
