Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts hosted June Bloom, a garden party fundraiser, which was located on the property of three La Cañada Flintridge estates.
The event offered attendees a day of shopping, live music, floral demonstrations, food and wine and docent-led garden tours — all of which were available at each of the three homes.
“Due to Covid we were not able to host our traditional showcase house event,” Benefit Chair Susie Aguirre said. “We got creative and crafted what we hope is a wonderful outdoor garden party allowing the exploration of three beautiful estates. Pasadena Showcase for the Arts is grateful to the three homeowners for their endless generosity.”
The garden party tickets sold out with every ticket sale going towards supporting music and the arts within the local community.
“Music and the arts are so important and will help reunite and strengthen communities after such a tough year,” Aguirre said.

New Benefit Chair Named for Showcase House of Design

Jill Fosselman

Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts has announced that Jill Fosselman has been selected as the benefit chair for the 2020 Pasadena Showcase House of Design. Fosselman joined the organization in 2008 because she was impressed by how hard the volunteers worked to raise money for music and the arts. “Particularly in an era of declining arts funding, I thought PSHA was a great organization with a very worthy cause,” she said.
One of her goals as benefit chair is to enhance the public’s understanding of the connection between the Showcase House of Design with the music and art programs that PSHA funds. “We want the public to know that we are “more than just a pretty house,” Fosselman said. “It’s important to emphasize the connection between the music and the arts programs we fund and the beautiful, inspirational design that people come to see.” Continue reading “New Benefit Chair Named for Showcase House of Design”
