Pasadena Heritage will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a cocktail reception, dinner and entertaining program on Saturday, October 7th,
Pasadena Heritage was founded in 1977 by a group of concerned citizens who saw historic resources being threatened and demolished at an alarming rate. The city had recently adopted its first historic preservation – or cultural heritage – ordinance, but community support was seen as essential. Over the past 40 years, Pasadena Heritage has grown from its first 200 members to more than 2,000 and has become known for providing effective advocacy and outstanding educational programs. Thousands of residents and visitors come to Pasadena every year now to experience our historic city, attend architectural tours, celebrate on the Colorado Street Bridge, or immerse themselves in the Arts & Crafts Movement. The heritage group’s advocacy efforts have protected neighborhoods, designated more than 2,000 buildings, and strengthened local preservation policy, ordinances, and codes.
Hundreds of hours of skills and services have been provided by volunteers, contributing immeasurably to Pasadena Heritage’s success. Volunteers have donated over 100,000 hours of service during Pasadena Heritage’s first 40 years. You may give Pasadena Heritage additional support through http://pasadenaheritage.org/volunteer/
The event is at Pasadena Convention Center’s Original Exhibition Hall (Hall C) 300 East Green Street, Pasadena, CA 91101
Tickets: $250 per person. For more information call 626-441-6333 or visit http://pasadenaheritage.org/40thgala/
