The Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills recently hosted its 12th annual Festival of Trees fundraiser in Pasadena.
Decorated Christmas trees, nearly all of which had special themes, were auctioned and raffled to winners to raise money for the organization.
The event’s premier sponsors were Monte and Meghan Baier; Bowden Development; Dr. Q Dental; Mr. and Mrs. Mike Slessor; Toffer Mann Investments; and Volkswagen Pasadena.
The Festival of Trees co-chairs were Kristy Bowden and Robin Cragoe, and other members of the event committee included Jodi Breneman, Erin Igoe, Christina Llorens, Alissa Marquez, Amanda Navar, Alison Oliva, Jennifer Oyoung, Jeanine Scott, Erin Slessor, Betsy Wilson, board chair Kurt Luginbuhl and Executive Director John Wilson.
