We are thrilled to be #volunteering this weekend @kidspacemuseum for the annual #pumpkin festival!
Did you know that Kidspace, Pasadena's most popular interactive children's museum, was piloted by the Junior League of Pasadena?

In the winter of 1978, a group of volunteers from the Junior League of Pasadena created a hands-on children's museum on the campus of the California Institute of Technology. Their idea was so successful that the Junior League continued the exhibit the next year, this time in the Rosemont Pavilion near the Rose Bowl. 
In 1980, a Board of Directors, including two Junior League members, were given the task of helping Kidspace find a permanent home. Due to the hard work and creativity of the Junior league, Kidspace is still a Pasadena treasure.
The Junior League of Pasadena is honored to have been awarded best local nonprofit in Pasadena Weekly's "Best of Pasadena 2017" edition. 
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote and support our mission of improving communities, developing the potential of women, and promoting voluntarism within the San Gabriel Valley.

With October arrives an opportunity to raise #BreastCancerAwareness ! Whether it's by scheduling your next screening appointment, or taking part in a community event, there is no better time to take a stand against the second leading cause of cancer death in women. 
We loved getting to help and support @tedx_official #tedxpasadena #trdxpasadenawomen with volunteers.  Amazing and incredible speakers and some from our local community.
