Community: Civitan Club hosts a Black & White Affair

May 22, 2012|By Joyce Rudolph

A lovely lunch, silent auction, fashion show and lots of socializing kept members of the Foothill Civitan Club, their friends and families entertained during the 30th annual spring event titled “A Black & White Affair” on May 12 at the Castaway Restaurant.

Co-president Mary Bernier and Co-president and event Chairwoman Elizabeth Kenney, assisted by Co-chairwoman Janet Jordan, kept things moving along with Mistress of Ceremonies Ann Marie Coppen and Master of Ceremonies and comedian Jack McGee.

Proceeds raised from past luncheons have underwritten the cost of three Canine Companions for Independence assistance dogs at a cost of $10,000 per dog. Proceeds also go to the Girls Ponytail Softball Jamboree, Adopt-a-Troop, Civitan International Research Center, the Burbank Coordinating Council's Holiday Basket program, Burbank High School Senior Scholarships and BCR “A Place to Grow.”


Guests of member Deanna Pettersen included her granddaughter Staci Phillips and 5-year-old great-granddaughter Layla Phillips, Terry Pettersen, Anita Verdugo, Lynn McWorthy, Susie Tarter, Ingrid Stine and Ramona Higgins. Joining member Sandy Dennis at her table were Carolyn Mace, Renee Hoenig, Marilyn Schull and Barbara Bartman.

Winning the stay at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel & Spa was June bride Angela Buckley, who will marry Jason Kilgore, son of member Joni Kilgore. Barbara Moreno, who was a guest of member Jenice McGlynn, will be donning her new 18k gold earrings and bracelet when she spends her gift certificate at Gary Bric's Ramp.

Modeling fashions from White House/Black Market in Sherman Oaks and Sy Devore in Studio City were members and family Janet Jordan, Elizabeth Kenney, Judy Torres, Kathie Kenney, Stacey Hubbard, Shannon Hubbard, Maureen Steinberg, Linda Colley, Clint Kenney, Joe Custer and Jack McGee.

A special treat was seeing fellow Burbank High School grads Janet Jordan, Robin Eisenberg Grosmark and Judy Torres singing together again like they did during many school assemblies.

Pancakes are a hot commodity

The delicious scent of sizzling sausage pierced the air of the YMCA parking lot. Jeff Prutz, a member of the Burbank YMCA Service Club, was rolling the links across the grill for the annual Pancake Breakfast to raise funds for youth programs.

His reason for giving back to the community put a lump in the throat.

A member of the Marine Corps Reserves, Prutz is waiting to be deployed to Afghanistan, he said.
