Know an outstanding woman who lives, works or attends school in Pasadena? We’re betting you know more than a few. Here’s your chance to give her the proper standing ovation she deserves.
The Pasadena Star-News and Rose Magazine are now accepting nominations for our annual Jewels of Pasadena: Women of Distinction Gala.
Our first-ever gala celebrating Pasadena women was held last year, and our sophomore effort promises to be another extraordinary event. (Check out photos from the 2010 gala here.)
We are taking nominations through Feb. 28 in the following categories: Arts & Culture, Business, Community Service/Volunteer, Education, Family, Health & Wellness, Philanthropy, Sports, Youth (under 21 years old) and Woman of the Year.
The finalists selected by our gala committee will be announced in the next issue of Rose Magazine, and all will be honored at an April celebration at the Westin Pasadena.
Rose Magazine’s April issue — focusing on the women of Pasadena and the best of all things spring — is out tomorrow, April 14. Inside you’ll find:
Picnic perfection from Nicole’s Gourmet Foods and a sak primer
Q&A with Onil Chibas, chef and owner of Elements Kitchen, Caf and Catering
Spring fashion from Elisa B. and a shop-the-block adventure, South Pasadena-style
All our regular departments — GO, PLAY and THINK — with the best of upcoming events
