The Luminaires’ Gala Benefit Luncheon Will Celebrate Doheny Eye Institute’s Move to West Pasadena

Published on Jun 7, 2022

The Luminaires, a volunteer support group that raises funds for the non-profit Doheny Eye Institute, will be holding their Gala Benefit Luncheon on Wednesday, June 8, to celebrate the institute’s recent move to West Pasadena.

The event will be held at The Jonathan Club, at 545 S. Figueroa Street in Los Angeles.

Event chairwoman Alison Winter of Pasadena and her committee members are planning a special day to honor the medical professionals, research scientists and support staff at Doheny Eye Institute, which recently relocated to a newly remodeled property at 150 N. Orange Grove Blvd. in Pasadena.

The institute’s Doheny Eye Center UCLA Pasadena clinic, previously located near Huntington Hospital, has also relocated to the new headquarters.

Wednesday’s Gala Benefit Luncheon will open with a boutique featuring a variety of popular vendors. Guests will shop while sipping festive drinks, and the luncheon menu will be presented by the Jonathan Club chef. The Satellite Sisters, Lian Dolan and Liz Dolan, will be the featured speakers.

Lian Dolan will introduce her book, “Lost and Found in Paris,” which will be released in April 2023. She is a writer, producer and podcaster who also happens to live in West Pasadena.
