Guests Enjoyed a Safari of Delights at Young & Healthy’s Something Tells Me It’s All Happening at the Zoo

Published on Feb 5, 2023

On Saturday, February 5, Young & Healthy Pasadena held their annual benefit at the Los Angeles Zoo. Guests dressed in their best Safari gear. 

Upon checking attendees were whisked away to the Cambodian Pavillion where elephants were the backdrop to delicious bites and adult libations. From there it was a short walk to the Treetops Terrace where dinner was served.

Authors Dr. Tina Payne Bryson and Dr. Daniel Siegel, as well as, the Helen and Will Webster Foundation were honored with the J. Donald Tomas Award for dedication, perseverance and selfless devotion to the well-being of children and exemplifying the spirit that led to the founding of Young & Healthy.

The evening concluded with a paddle pledge and live auction to raise funds to support the vital prevention, education, family support and access to healthcare services that Young & Healthy provides to the uninsured and underserved children and their families in the greater Pasadena area.

Founded in 1990, Young & Healthy was born from a community need to improve quality of life for children in the Pasadena area.  The result is a human-scale solution to a large-scale problem: people helping people; and health professionals sharing their time, skills and resources with children whose families would otherwise be unable to access that care.
