Grateful Grove Gala Is Oct. 16

Jason and Laura Berns

Monte Vista Grove Homes presents its Grateful Grove Gala: Community in all Seasons on Saturday, Oct. 16, as a tribute to the resilience, generosity and inspiration demonstrated by its many and diverse community supporters. The event, which will be held at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club, begins with a reception at 5 p.m. followed by the program and dinner at 6 p.m.
The Gala Spirit Award honorees are the Berns Team (award-winning real estate professionals), Rev. Chuck Osburn of La Cañada Presbyterian Church, Citizens Business Bank and CitizensTrust; and special honoree is the Pasadena Health Department. “Each has contributed uniquely to the health and well-being of MVGH residents,” an event spokesperson said.
The Berns Team, led by Jason and Laura Berns, has helped more than 850 families meet their real estate needs since 2012. The team displays incredible philanthropic generosity through their nonprofit “Berns Team Blessings,” which donates to dozens of nonprofits all over Southern California.
