Although the sky threatened and a light rain fell, guests at Black Tie and Burgers came dressed in their best bib and tucker to raise funds for the organization on Saturday, October 6, at a private home in Pasadena.

While enjoying nibbles from Cynthia Brook’s Catering and tasting the latest in rums, guests placed their bids for the various silent auction items. Later, there were burgers, onion rings and fries from the Habit Burger and a bit of a sprinkle.

Black Tie and Burgers is a celebration of the Boys and Girls Club of Pasadena and all of their friends that help to serve more than 2,500 young people.

Funds raised at Black Tie and Burgers support the programs and activities that help kids build self-confidence, develop character and acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become caring, compassionate adults.

The Boys and Girls Club of Pasadena promotes the health, educational, social, vocational, and character development of boys and girls ages 6 to 18. Their goal is to improve the lives of children by helping them to build self assurance and develop leadership skills while reinforcing positive values.
