Service Clubs: Models are pretty as a picture

June 19, 2010|Isabel Adams

The Foothill Civitan Club of Burbank's Philanthropy Fundraising Event on May 8 at the Castaway Restaurant was a great success.

The fashion show, "Pretty as a Picture," with members of the club and families as the models was very well done and the clothes were marvelous.

The Foothill Civitan Club is extremely proud to have previously underwritten the cost of three Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), assistance dogs, at a cost of $10,000 per dog.


Proceeds from this year's event will enable them to continue to support projects like this, along with their other philanthropy projects including: scholarships at local high schools, continued support of Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, contributions to the Salvation Army's various programs, sponsoring three families in the Burbank Coordinating Council's Holiday Basket, sponsorship of the Annual Girls Ponytail Jamboree, which includes a parade, hot dog lunch and trophies and continued support of the BCR "a place to grow" and Tierra Del Sol, as well as many other charities.

Continued support of their many projects is solely dependent on the success of their fundraising events.

The club will be hosting the Ponytail League Ball Players on June 26.

The Foothill Civitan Club meets at 7 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at the Don Tuttle Center. For more information, contact Karen Hubbard at (818) 842-4370 or at kikibethhubz@
