CADDYSHACK – Let’s Par-Tee for Children’s Healthcare
On Saturday, January 26, 2019 Young & Healthy held its annual gala event at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club. The theme was CADDYSHACK and our guests took advantage of the opportunity to dress in their favorite CADDYSHACK golf attire! Golf caps, bright plaid pants and argyle sweaters were a hit and made for some fun photo booth shots!
We are very thankful for this year’s event chairpersons, Carrie Walker and Cristina Navarrete, who worked hard to make the event so successful, raising approximately $300,000. The club was creatively decorated and golf inspired for an evening of food, friends, fun and fundraising for Young & Healthy.
We were proud to honor the DiMassa Family/Summerkids with the Alliance Award and Dr. Janice DaVolio and Dr. Seth Vaccaro with the J. Donald Thomas Award during the event. These awards are given to those whose dedication, perseverance and selfless devotion to the well-being of children exemplify the spirit that led to the founding of our healthcare program over 27 years ago.
Many thanks to those who could attend the gala. We missed our friends who could not participate this year. We hope to see you all next year!
You are invited to join us for Young & Healthy’s free annual friend and fundraiser event. Our goal is to bring together current supporters, as well as new potential supporters, to learn about what Young & Healthy has most recently been doing to provide for the children in the greater Pasadena area who are in need of quality healthcare and have nowhere else to turn. Young & Healthy continues to adapt to the needs of the children and families we serve. Come learn how we are meeting these needs today!

“Paper Tigers is a moving and profoundly important film that offers critical insights into one of the most widespread educational and health challenges in American society. It should be mandatory viewing for teachers and principals across the country, and anyone who works with vulnerable youth” said David Bornstein, New York Times author and Co-Founder of The Solutions Journalism Network. The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington. After radically changing its approach to disciplining its students, Lincoln High School saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates. The school has become a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families through the practice of ongoing trauma-informed educational strategies. Told with intimate verite and diary cam footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest research on childhood adversity is proving: that one caring adult can change the trajectory of a young person’s life.
Save the date for Gala 2017, “Making Waves with Young & Healthy”, on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at H Studios in Burbank. We will enjoy an “island-style” evening with friends and raise funds for the underserved children in the Pasadena area who need our help to access quality healthcare.
