The 101st Tournament of Roses Queen and Royal Court will be the featured guests on December 10, 2018 during the Oneonta Club’s annual holiday dinner at the Woman’s Club of South Pasadena.

Social hour begins at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

The Rose Queen and Court were selected after a month-long selection process among 24 Pasadena-area schools and 44 finalists. On the go, they will attend numerous community and media functions, serving as ambassadors of the Tournament of Roses, the Pasadena community, and the greater Los Angeles area.

The grand finale will be their appearance on the Royal Court float in the 130th Rose Parade and attending the 105th Rose Bowl, both on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.

In addition to the TOR Queen and Court, the Pasadena Girl’s Choir will perform at the holiday season event.

Founded in September 2107, the Pasadena Girls’ Choir is under the direction of  Barbara Allen (L.G.S.M). With its mission statement of “finding a voice through song,” the choir gives an opportunity to girls who love to sing to grow their vocal abilities and understanding of vocal techniques through varied vocal repertoire including classical, pop, jazz and Broadway songs.

Oneonta Club’s history dates back to 1923 when a group of12 men in South Pasadena gathered to discuss the need for a group, which would provide supportive fellowship in the area. The Oneonta Club was the result. The club continues today almost unchanged in any way. It has a limited membership to 300, and membership is by invitation only and represents a cross section of the leadership in South Pasadena, San Marino, Pasadena, Alhambra and other San Gabriel Valley cities. Except for the December meeting, the non-sectarian, nondenominational club meets monthly for dinner programs in Gray Hall at Oneonta Church, featuring speakers from the arts, crafts and all professional fields drawing from the talent of California as well as other areas.
