Some 140 Hillsides supporters attended a packed Holiday Celebration at the Parkway Grill in Pasadena on Tuesday, December 1.

The event was hosted by the Hillsides Guild, a volunteer group of Hillsides that provides outings and activities for the children who live at Hillsides. This annual event featured cocktails, dinner, and a performance by the renowned Citrus Singers from Citrus College in Glendora, who have been performing at this celebration for more than 20 years.

The restaurant was beautifully decked out for the holidays and definitely put the crowd in a holiday mood.

Hillsides, located in West Pasadena, provides safe places for children by treating abuse, neglect and mental illness; strengthening families; providing special education; and advocating for children’s rights. For more, see
