Volunteer for the Ride

Volunteer for the Ride

If you joined us last year to watch as Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer and their cycling colleagues roar around the Rose Bowl, you know what a thrill it is to have them in town. They’re coming back in late May for the next Amgen Tour of California, aka the Tour de Sunshine. Many of the [...]

Sip to Support Sierra Madre Library

Sip to Support Sierra Madre Library

Think Moby Dick and a great white wine. A glass of Chianti and The Godfather. Cannery Row and a Viognier from Monterey.  See how wonderfully wine and great library books mix? Sierra Madre’s library supporters agree and bring the two together this Friday at the annual  fundraiser. For 40 years, the Friends of the Library have been gathering [...]

A Home for Your Homegrown Produce

A Home for Your Homegrown Produce

Swimming in citrus? Rich in garden-grown greens? Set aside some of your backyard produce to donate to local food banks — they’re happy to pass along the bounty to our hungry neighbors.

The Red Cross & Haiti

The Red Cross & Haiti

Every red-blooded American is trying find some way to help Haiti recover from its devastating earthquake, which has inspired us to champion Pasadena’s very own outpost of the American Red Cross.

Adopt a Family & Gift Programs

Adopt a Family & Gift Programs

One of the most rewarding and meaningful ways to share in the holiday season is by “adopting” a family — which basically means buying both gifts and essentials for a needy family that has registered through a local agency. Because of my own family’s generations-deep history with the L.A. Archdiocese, we’ve adopt a family through [...]
