Parti Gras 2022 | Through The Looking Glass

South Pasadena Educational Foundation Announces Return of Parti Gras

SPEF is excited to announce that it’s annual fundraising gala, Parti Gras, is returning to the rolling greens of the Arroyo Seco golf course Saturday, May 14th. Save the Dates are arriving in mailboxes this week.

Jean Zenas, longtime South Pasadena resident and past SPEF board member, is returning to chair the highly-anticipated event. “We have assembled a fantastic, enthusiastic group of people to create the party of the year,” says Zenas. “Parti Gras is always such a great way to bring the community together and support our schools – and this year it’s more important than ever to shake off the dust and come out to celebrate our little town!”

In a nod to one of the last pre-pandemic SPEF events, (the 2020 5th grade musical production “Alice in Wonderland”) the Parti Gras theme will be “Through the Looking Glass” a punchy play on the collective experience of the last 2 years and, it’s an excellent symbol of the resilience and staying power of our community.
