VNACare earns $27,875 for home health care

A total of $27,875 was raised Oct. 18 during VNACare’s 60th

anniversary party at which 160 revelers dined, danced and played

casino games at Pasadena’s historic Castle Green Hotel.


Those honored during the evening were Arnold von Massenhausen, who

received the Patrick Liddell Award; Ken Scott, the Volunteer of the

Year Award; and Nora Derian, a registered nurse, the Employee of the

Year Award.


Swinging rhythms of Park Avenue West helped couples maintain a

steady beat across the dance floor. For those not dancing, there were

games and a silent auction to keep the action moving.

Established in 1943 by concerned citizens and the Glendale

Community Chest, VNACare has gone on to serve thousands of patients

through its home health, hospice and wellness services. It serves

Burbank, Glendale, La Crescenta and La Canada Flintridge.
