Mar 27, 2016

El-Portal_PasadenaThe Community Organization of Pasadena for Advancement in Education invites the public to its spring mixer on April 2 at El Portal restaurant.

COPA Latinas for Education is a women’s group that raises funds for scholarships, which are presented to PUSD students on an annual basis.

The last financials we could find indicate that in 2012, COPA raised $6,000 that was then dispersed to Latina seniors in five of the high schools within the Pasadena Unified School District. These seniors were planning to attend UCLA, USC, PCC, Texas Christian, UC Santa Barbara, and Georgetown.
