PEN is a network of more than 1,500 parents who support and send their children to Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) schools. The grassroots nonprofit promotes family participation in public education in Pasadena, Altadena and Sierra Madre, and believes that parent and community involvement are essential to building strong schools for all students. Annually, PEN recognizes parent and community leaders who represent the type of involvement for which they advocate. This year, three outstanding volunteers are being honored: Begonia Bautista Beltran, Scott Harden, and Angie Uriu. PEN will also recognize Diane Orona with the PEN Founders Award for her commitment to PEN’s work.
Tickets for the Wine Tasting are $75; $100 ticket includes the Beer & Spirits Tasting also.
