On Saturday night, February 23, a sold-out crowd of more than 600 filled the ballroom of the iconic The Langham Huntington, Pasadena to celebrate the charityâ€™s 100 years of service and to enjoy an evening of spectacular entertainment and fine dining.â€œI canâ€™t thank our supporters enough for making the gala an incredible success,â€ said Joseph M. Costa, Hillsides chief executive officer. â€œThe funds raised will allow Hillsides to continue to create lasting change in the lives of at-risk children, youth, and families. This overwhelming outpouring of generosity is the best birthday present Hillsides could ever receive.â€Elizabeth Rusnak Arizmendi, Rusnak Auto Group Vice President of Public Relations and chair of the event, kicked off the evening by introducing the presenters who awarded Dr. Drew Pinsky of â€œCelebrity Rehabâ€ fame and NBC4 Weatherman Fritz Coleman special â€œHillsides Centennialâ€ awards for all the hard work they do for the charity. Tiffany Company of Pasadena generously donated the hand-cut crystal awards that were also given later in the evening to Emmy award-winning actress Jean Smart, comedian George Lopez, Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Marcus Allen, and Paul Rusnak, Chairman/CEO of Rusnak Auto Group.Presenters for the honorees were Colleen Williams, NBC4 anchor, Mike Catherwood, co-host of â€œLoveline,â€ NFL football players Willie Gault and Jason David, Robert C. Smith, CEO of Allied High Tech Company, Actress Kristen Renton, and Arizmendi.â€œHillsides Centennial Gala was truly a magical evening transformed into a winter wonderland with bursts of color everywhere once the new logo was unveiled,â€ said Arizmendi. â€œThe honorees were extraordinary, the entertainers were flawless, the bidders were extremely generous, and the winners were the children and families served by this exceptional organization.â€The evening was action-packed with a live auction filled with unique and exceptional opportunities and items hosted by award-winning comedian and actor, Christopher Rich. The live auction got fast and furious when a bidding war broke out among guests for a signed Elton John band guitar, with band members Davey Johnstone and John Mahon cheering the guests on. Guests also rushed to outbid each other for a Danube Viking River Cruise and a weekend away at The Langham with a Maserati or Bentley from Rusnak Maserati Pasadena and Bentley Pasadena, part of the Rusnak Auto Group, among other items.Selected by Miss California USA 2013 Mabelynn Capeluj, some lucky guests were also winners of the opportunity drawings, which included box seats to the Hollywood Bowl and a weekend getaway at the Omni San Francisco Hotel.

Diners also enjoyed sipping Maddalena Chardonnay and San Antonio Heritage Red, donated by the Riboli family of the local San Antonio Winery.Toward the end of the evening, Costa thanked guests, telling them, â€œAs people depend on us to provide unconditional support and access to programs and services that improve their lives, we rely on your unconditional support to help us impact their lives.â€ He gave special thanks to the eventâ€™s major sponsors, which include Paul Rusnak, Rusnak Auto Group, Wells Fargo, Specialty Car Craft, The Walt Disney Company, Susan and Bill Noce, Bolton & Company Insurance Brokers, Marge and Sherm Telleen, THE Magazine, Susan and Bill Noce, Jacob Maarse Florists, San Antonio Winery & Maddalena Restaurant, EFX-Event Special Effects.The evening ending with the unveiling of Hillsidesâ€™ new logo, a colorful pinwheel, representing childhood innocence and the power to turn obstacles into opportunities.

This puts farmers into good form, when you see the sunshine shining and see the mower working and the baler working and the bales stacked up here because farmers have just endured the worst winter on record.Niall Maloney, Director of Operations Shannon Airport and Joe Healey, National President IFA at Shannon AirportPicture: Eamon Ward“Those bales are a godsend and a life saver; the difference between farmers going to bed feeling very stressed and farmers going to be happy knowing that their animals have enough for tonight and tomorrow and next week. Normally it’s farmers helping farmers but for the likes of Shannon to come in and offer this, it shows the goodwill of Shannon Airport towards the farming community.”Shannon Airport’s Director of Operations Niall Maloney said that having opened up the airfield to the local farming community during the fodder crisis of 2013, the airport regretted that farmers were faced with another challenge of this magnitude so soon. But, he stressed, they hadn’t to think twice about responding.“We were approached by the local farming community to say there is a crisis, which we’re all aware of, and could we help. There’s only one answer you can give and that is ‘absolutely yes.”Among the farmers who came to collect bales directly from the airport was Joe O’Connell from Parteen, Co. Clare and speaking from the airfield he said: “This is important because there are people with a lot of damp land around us. It will just carry them over, until we get a fine week and it will ok again. My son is milking cows and I have sucklers. We had to put in the cows by night since last September and they’ve been in since. We had a lot of extra fodder but, with the long winter, we’ve ran out now and it has cost us a lot of money with feed and meal.“I’ve been getting calls this morning about this and will be bringing this load back for my own and neighbours’ farms. There’s great credit due to Shannon Airport and the IFA to put all this together to help out the local farmers.” Mr. O’ Connell concluded.More local news here.
