9/11-themed event to raise funds for first responders
A Sept. 11 Pasadena fundraiser for local first responders is scheduled at D’Gala Event Center, 2226 Shaver St. and will include a performance re-enacting stories from the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The re-enactments by actors from Pasadena Little Theatre will begin at 7:30 p.m. Hors d’ouevres and drinks will served starting at 6:30 p.m., said Ginny Ginn-Wagner, wife of Mayor Jeff Wagner.
“During the first hour, while guests are visiting, entertainment will be provided by several singers and musicians who are police officers and firefighters,” Ginn-Wagner said.
Ticket prices are $25, $35 and $50, with proceeds going to the Pasadena Citizen Police Academy Alumni and the Pasadena Volunteer Firemen’s Association, said Julie Owen, president of the theater group’s board.
