Five Acres 135th birthday celebration gala

We are pleased to announce that long-time supporters, Nicole Rasic and Trish Gonzales, will once again co-chair Five Acres 2023 fundraising gala. Inspired by the agency’s 135th birthday celebration, next year’s gala is sure to be a huge bash.

As one of its two largest fundraising events of the year, next year’s gala will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2023. The much-anticipated birthday celebration will take place outdoors at a historic Pasadena residence built in 1897 and designed by Frederick Roehrig, American architect of landmark building Hotel Green, once the home of the Tournament of Roses and the Valley Hunt Club. Castle Green, which was built as an annex to Hotel Green, and the Andrew McNally House in Altadena were also designed by Roehrig.
