Rummage Sale for Pen + Napkin

I had the opportunity to swing by the rummage sale to benefit the nonprofit organization Pen + Napkin.

Not only did I pick up some great finds, but the proceeds from the sale go to Pen + Napkin which provides furnishing and decorating of homes for families transitioning out of homelessness.

Special thanks to Helena Zann for volunteering and for inviting me to this event.

If you are interested in exploring some properties too I invite you to search at

Pasadena Rose Parade

I had the opportunity to see the Pasadena Rose Parade floats up close in person this year. The viewing happens after the Rose Parade in Pasadena. It was very exciting to see all the detail put into the floats and to support the volunteers who make the Rose Parade possible.

Looking for a home within walking distance of the parade route? Check out my online search.

PFAR Assists Local Charities

The Pasadena Foothill Association of Realtors has a charitable foundation that collects money throughout the year that is then distributed to local charities at a check giving ceremony. This article in the Outlook Newspaper has photographs from that event. My picture appears twice.

It was a great event I’m very proud of all the work of the Pasadena Foothill Association of Realtors Charitable Foundation and also grateful to the Outlook Newspapers for their continued support.
