On Saturday, May 12, 2012, the Pasadena Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. hosted its 24th Annual "Fashionetta: Scholarship and Salute to Mother's Luncheon and Fashion Show" at the Glendale Hilton.
This fun-filled afternoon awarded over $12,000 in scholarships to graduating college-bound seniors from Pasadena Area high schools and honored Ms. Lena Kennedy as the AKA 2012 Mother of the Year.
The Scholarship Presentation was impressive as the nine awardees took the stage while their accomplishments thus far and future goals were shared with the audience.
The guests were entertained by emcee Adai Lamar from KJLH Radio, the beautiful sounds of Marvelous Music, and the unique fashion designs of The Velvet Monkey with their Le Chic Couture fashion presentation. There was shopping galore with many vendors carrying unique clothes, jewelry, art and much more. It was truly a beautiful day, and a great way to celebrate the Mother's Day Weekend!
Fashionetta is a 501(c)3 fundraiser event for the Pasadena Chapter of AKA. The monies from this event fund future scholarships and many programs that support the Pasadena community like the Annual Health Summit, Scholarship Workshop, Power Networking, Emerging Young Leaders, and more.
The organization is thankful for the overwhelming support from the community of this annual event through ticket purchases, donations and ads.
