PCF SPOTLIGHTS

Classy & Sassy Luncheon & Boutique

Tuesday, November 4 from 11 am-2 pm at the Altadena Country Club.

The Classy & Sassy Luncheon is a very special event to benefit the Yes, Virginia Fund, which supports underprivileged children in our community at Christmas. Come relax with your friends while benefiting a great cause!

This year, the Yes, Virginia Fund celebrates 20 years of helping local non-profit agencies provide toys, books, gifts, and special experiences for disadvantaged children during the holidays. "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" means that no child is meant to go without. The Yes, Virginia Fund offers these gifts in an effort to help all children feel valued and supported in their lives. We are committed to our credo: "Some things have to be believed to be seen.”
