2024 Heart & Excellence Persimmon Donor Luncheon

Join us this Spring to celebrate the power of philanthropy at YWCA Glendale and Pasadena’s 27th Annual Heart & Excellence Awards & Persimmon Donor Circle Luncheon. Connect with 200 local supporters as we celebrate the impactful contributions of exceptional women while providing a space for diverse networking. Connect with individuals from various social, ethnic, economic, and cultural backgrounds, all fostering a supportive mosaic for our shared mission.

Caring individuals have always generously donated their time, talent, resources and hearts to furthering the common good. This abiding event is a chance to show reverence for them.

Proceeds of this event will help support the YWCA Glendale and Pasadena’s mission to empower women, children and girls through our programs and services. Join us for an unforgettable afternoon of connection, celebration, and a shared commitment to creating a better tomorrow!

This year, we have the privilege of recognizing the outstanding contributions of outgoing board member and Persimmon Donor Leadership Circle member Valerie Merritt, whose profound impact has greatly enriched our community. We also extend our heartfelt appreciation to Grace Yuen, a former YWCA Pasadena Foothill Valley Board Member and distinguished member of the Persimmon Donor Circle, for her steadfast dedication to advancing equity. Additionally, we are honoring The Oakmont League for their outstanding volunteer services and contributions, which play a vital role in empowering women and girls.
