South Pasadenans Venture North to Altadena for Tournament of Roses Float Fundraiser


Story and Photography by BILL GLAZIER, Editor, South Pasadena Now

A group of South Pasadenans ventured out of the city on Sunday afternoon as the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses (SPTOR) held a wine and beer tasting fundraiser at the Altadena Ale & Wine House in the 2000 block of Fair Oaks Avenue.

Guests at the establishment made a $25 donation each to sample wine and beers. All proceeds will benefit the construction and decoration of the 2016 South Pasadena Rose Parade float that will roll down Colorado Boulevard on New Year’s Day.

SPTOR President Chris Colburn called the event a great “no effort” fundraiser that began a year ago and allows the community to get together in a fun setting.

“We drink a little wine and beer and make some money to help build his float,” he said.

Some of those on hand for the event included, above, Joey Randolph, Pat Mahoney, Peter Heinsendory, Carrie Russell, Cindy Kenney, Anita Scott, Megan Fielding, Ryan Fielding, Sandra Fielding, Chris Colburn, Donna Benjamin, Rob Benjamin, Janet Benjamin, Lillie Getty, Chris Ziegler, Ashley Ziegler, Bernoldette Hendry and Greg Hendry.
