The Woman’s Civic League of Pasadena recently held its annual Holiday Boutique and Luncheon at the Woman’s City Club.
Jolly Boutique shoppers checked lots of items off their gift lists and, along the way, bought themselves a gift or two at the boutique.
Rita Elshout, Woman’s Civic League Ways and Means chair and her committee coordinated this annual event. All the hard work was rewarded by funds raised that provide grants to nonprofit organizations serving women and children in the Pasadena area. Each of the members did her part to make the boutique a financial success.
The Woman’s Civic League’s first vice president Margaret Hunter played Christmas favorites on the piano, entertaining members and guests before the luncheon. After lunch, the Blair High School Choral Group under direction of Amanda Engstrom sang songs celebrating the Christmas and Hanukkah season. An opportunity drawing and silent auction was also included.
