The Zonta Club of Pasadena announces the launch of our Sheroes of Pasadena program for 2014!
We have selected five amazing local women who are making an impact on the lives of women and children. These women are highlighted on the Sheroes of Pasadena website (www.sheroesofpasadena.com) and we are honoring them with donations to their organizations and honorary membership in our club. Take a moment to get to know them and support their incredible efforts in the community!
This year's Sheroes include:
Monica Hubbard - Wired Women
Denise Jones - Alkebu-lan Cultural Center
Jackie Knowles - The Women's Room
Roberta Martinez - Latino Heritage
