The Langham Huntington, Pasadena, Southern California’s iconic landmark hotel, recently launched Heritage with Heart, a series of events with local ties to the community. The series consist of quarterly events hosted at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena where a percentage of proceeds will be donated to a local charity. Each event will have a different theme, non-profit partner and will be held in a different venue within the 23-acre property.

In celebration of Earth Month, the Heritage with Heart series launched on April 19 with “Sunset & Symphony,” which featured a spring feast held on the property’s historic Horseshoe Garden. The magical evening under the stars highlighted family-style dishes prepared by The Langham’s expert culinary team, utilizing organic and sustainable ingredients, many sourced from the onsite vegetable garden. Guests wined and dined to the sounds of a string trio from The Pasadena Symphony with idyllic views of the classic Pasadena sunset.

“Connecting with the community is of upmost importance to us,” said Paul Leclerc, Managing Director, The Langham Huntington, Pasadena. “We are thrilled to launch the Heritage with Heart series and create new memories for our locals and guests, while also bringing awareness to charitable causes within Pasadena.”

The event was held on Thursday, April 19 and 10% of the event proceeds benefit Pasadena’s Union Station Homeless Services, a non-profit organization committed to helping homeless individuals and families rebuild their lives.

About Union Station Homeless Services

Union Station Homeless Services is the San Gabriel Valley’s largest social service agency helping homeless adults and families rebuild their lives. We have been selected by LA County as one of 1 of 8 lead agencies to coordinate services and work towards ending homelessness in the region. With our partners, we identify and rapidly house the most vulnerable members of our community, and then surround them with the services they need to stay housed for good.

The vision expressed by the community volunteers who founded this agency 45 years ago still rings true today: Everyone deserves a life of dignity and a place to call home. While our vision has never changed, our services have expanded and evolved. From the time we first meet people on the street, until well after they have keys to their own place, Union Station provides people with the intake, shelter, housing, and employment services they need for a better life.
