Decked out in their best ‘80s attire, more than 150 members of the Pasadena Business Association, their friends and supporters partied the night away at Kurtz’s Beach for the annual scholarship fundraiser, this year with a throwback theme to the era of leg warmers, parachute pants and big hair. Returning this year was ‘80s cover band Guys In Thin Ties, and between ticket sales, sponsorships and auctions, the event garnered more than $11,400. Those funds will cover the PBA’s annual scholarships for graduating seniors, as well as mini scholarships for eighth-graders and fifth-graders. “This is still truly a great event and it is for a great cause,” said Jerry Nicklow, the PBA’s past president and chairman of the fundraiser. “Those who know me had heard me say over and over that one of the best ways we can invest in Pasadena’s future is to invest in Pasadena’s youth. And that is exactly what this event does and is why I am truly honored to have been able to be the chair of this event for the last seven years.”
