Black Tie & Burgers: An Italian-Inspired Evening of Support for the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena

Published on Oct 13, 2021

The night of October 9, 2021, was a fun-filled in-person event celebrating the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena, the kids they serve, and friends and supporters. Along with Italian-inspired entertainment, everyone feasted on Habit Burger meals, bid on live and online silent auctions, participated in the Wine Wagon raffle, and supported the Club and the kids they serve.

More than 250 guests raised over $245,000 for life-changing programs for kids and teens in the greater Pasadena community. The Club is needed now more than ever, as the Club is helping kids recover academic ground lost during the school closures, recharge with their favorite physical activities, and rebuild their college and career pathways towards Great Futures.

Black Tie & Burgers was held this year in the backyard of a lovely historic Pasadena home. Black Tie & Burgers Committee Chair, Melina Montloya said in a previous interview, “What fun it was to see everyone dressed up and in person again.”

Lisa Cavelier, Boys & Girls Club CEO remarked in a previous interview, “Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena has provided high-quality out-of-school programming for children for 84 years, and we strive to provide the same quality programming for another 84 years and beyond. Black Tie & Burgers is a celebration of our past, our present, our future, and the supporters who make it all possible.”
