On Saturday, August 24th, HEAR Center's board of directors and their guests attended the 3rd Annual Pasadena POPS concert fundraiser. The event was held at the LA County Arboretum in Arcadia. Conductor, Larry Blanks and soloist, Michael Cavanaugh performed the Music of Elton John for a crowd of over 5,000. HEAR Center guests enjoyed a delicious dinner and dessert under the stars. Wine was provided compliments of Barrett Cellars Winery.
Many thanks to the HEAR Center Board of Directors and their guests for their attendance and generous donations.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Pasadena POPS fundraiser has been cancelled. We look forward to attending the concert in summer 2021.
Please keep an eye out for exciting fundraising activities from HEAR Center that will be announced soon!
