Hillsides Thanks Upcoming Gala Donors

Hillsides, a foster care charity, recently held a gala sponsor reception for donors at Alma de la Rosa restaurant in Pasadena. Some 70 guests enjoyed appetizers and drinks at the new restaurant owned by Robert and Deborah Simon, the site of the former AKA Bistro in Old Town Pasadena. The event was an opportunity to thank the sponsors of Hillsides upcoming gala, Las Flores de Hillsides, which will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Langham Huntington in Pasadena.
The gala is the charity’s biggest fundraiser of the year and will benefit the 13,000 children and families that Hillsides serves.
Los Angeles businesswoman Sara Simpson, who is chairwoman of the event, said, “I am honored to be the chair of Hillsides annual gala, which combines two of my greatest loves — flowers and nature, with my passion for helping children in need. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
Tickets to the gala are $300, and can be purchased by visiting hillsides.org or by contacting Hillsides special events coordinator Bernie Gore at (323) 543-2800, ext. 253, or bgore@hillsides.org.
