The Junior League of Pasadena will hold its annual Simply Speaking silent auction and dinner on Saturday, April 29, at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club. Proceeds from the event will support the Junior League of Pasadena’s community outreach initiatives and charitable efforts in Pasadena and the surrounding communities.
This year’s event features a keynote speech by Trina Turk, a local fashion designer known throughout the country for her bold and California-inspired line of contemporary apparel, shoes and accessories.
“I am thrilled to welcome Trina Turk to Simply Speaking,” said Jennifer Goldman, president of JLP. “She embodies the business, entrepreneurship and leadership skills that the Junior League of Pasadena is working hard to grow within the women of Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley through Lean-in Circles and our Women’s Career Workshops. She has a lot to offer our community, and I know it’s going to be a fantastic event.”
This is the JLP’s fourth annual Simply Speaking event. This year’s fete will also feature a silent auction, cocktail hour and dinner. Additionally, there will be entertainment provided by local musicians trioKAIT and Megan Grano and Molly Erdman from the comedy group the BreakWomb.
