The Glendale Association of Realtors (GAOR) hosted its Centennial Gala on Thursday evening, celebrating its 100th anniversary of service to the community, according to CEO David Kissinger.
Approximately 175 people attended the dinner at the Chevy Chase Country Club, which included a cocktail reception and DJ dancing. Among the attendees were Glendale Mayor Paula Devine and City Councilmen Vrej Agajanian, Dan Brotman and Ara Najarian. Also present were representatives of Congressman Adam Schiff, state Sen. Anthony Portantino, Assemblywoman Laura Friedman and Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger.
Devine delivered a keynote address which included updates on city actions as well as personal recollections of her first experience buying a house and using a Realtor. GAOR also released a book and 20-minute video which was researched and developed by local journalist Vic Pallos.
GAOR had originally planned for the Centennial Gala to take place in July of 2020, which would have more closely marked the 100-year milestone of its history. That event was postponed due to the pandemic.
