Wine, Cheese, and Smiles
Our 2nd Annual Food, Wine, and Flintridge Center Fundraiser on September 13th was a great success! It was so empowering to see people come together in support of adults and youth who have been impacted by incarceration and community violence. The funds raised that night will allow us to strengthen our programs that assist our community’s most vulnerable members in getting back on their feet and plugged into their communities.
Everyone had a fun time tasting all of the wines, mingling, and meeting some of our program participants, volunteers, and Flintridge team members. Team member Daniel Torres shared his personal story of growing up in Pasadena and his journey from incarceration, to program participant, to union construction worker, to Flintridge team member. Our President Jaylene spoke on the remarkable changes that Flintridge Center’s programs and services have allowed in peoples’ lives.
