Harambee Christian Family Center and Elizabeth House were the recipients of just over $4,300 from the La Cañada program, representing 10% of its fundraising proceeds this year.
The LCPC Parent Education Program also raised $3,800 raised for scholarships to program participants through the Founders' Fund, named in honor of: Annie Latte Krach, Gail Hanson and Claudia Zentmyer.
Additional funds go to other charitable efforts year-round.
