May Off To Running Start 2009: Merry Month

May off to running start

The merry month of May got off to a running start in Pasadena on May 2 with tandem Kentucky Derby-themed parties.
This year the foundation recognized Mic Hansen, one of its charter board members and first CFO, for outstanding service in local architectural preservation. Joining in the tribute were Foundation President Charlotte K. Reith, President-elect Floraline Stevens, Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard and past awardees Claire Bogaard, Susan Mossman, Ted Bosely, William Ellinger and Winter, who presented the award. The Winter Award is yet another laurel for Hansen. She has been recognized by both the Pasadena and Los Angeles YWCA as well as Pasadena’s Women at Work. “We are delighted to be honoring Mic,” Stevens said. “She was a unanimous choice!” Others in the crowd were Larry Blinn, Jim Boyle, Suzanne and Dale Burger, Barbara Cole, Carol Fishburn, Sherry Grossi, Russell Hobbs, Gail and Grace Jamentz, Yolanda and Andrew Oliver, Kelly and Steve McLeod, Diana Peterson-More, Caryn and Ralph Hofer, Mary Lois Nevins, Francine Kolcz, Jane Muller, W. Elizabeth Watts, and Kathy and Ramon Huante. A Derby soiree Although the doings, titled “A Day at the Derby,” began at twilight, this soiree brought out an array of Derby-day millinery and natty attire on both the ladies and the gents.
Nearly 200 guests turned out for the racing-themed party that raised more than $130,000 for programs for San Gabriel Valley families affected by a diagnosis of cancer.
