PBA Update


The Pasadena Business Association hopes everyone had a wonderful holiday.

PBA’s A Child’s Christmas program, with the help of our wonderful members and the community, was able to sponsor 63 children from 27 families this year. We were concentrating on grandparents raising grandchildren, aunts and uncles raising nieces and nephews, and siblings raising younger siblings. Thank you to everyone who donated, sponsored a family, and helped with delivering items.

Join us for dinner, drinks, dancing, great silent auction items and more at PBA's annual scholarship fundraiser dinner. This fun, themed event is always a good time. We have given out over $215,000 in scholarships to students in Pasadena and we'd like to give out more this year. We hope to see you there!

We are having a good old-fashioned country hoedown on March 7 at Kurtz’s Beach from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. DJ Marcus will spin the records for dancing. We will have a country buffet and oyster bar with draft beer, wine and soda included. There will be a silent auction for some great deals.

All of the proceeds go toward scholarships for local high school seniors. Visit the scholarship fundraiser page for more info.

Tickets are $40 each if purchased by February 28 and $50 each if purchased after February 28. For tickets, to donate a silent auction item or to volunteer, contact event co-chairs Jerry Nicklow from Huff Insurance at jerry@huffinsurance.com and Heather Fees from Keller Williams Realty at hfreesrealtor@gmail.com.
