"Autumn Magic" were the appropriate words to describe this year's Scholarship and Fashion Luncheon of the Patrons Club of Glendale Community College. Indeed, magic was woven into each activity in the plush Verdugo Ballroom of Burbank's Castaway on Friday. A reception and silent auction began the afternoon. An annual favorite is brunch at Oakmont with Glady and Jack Kabateck. This year, college board member Vahe Peroomian donated two of his glistening black-and-white photographs to the auction.
Patrons Club President Judy Gorham welcomed her audience of several hundred college staff and supporters. College Supt./President Dawn Lindsay introduced event Chairwoman Marianne Jennings who, in turn, introduced college board of trustee members — President Tony Tartaglia, Vice President Anita Quinonez Gabrielian, Peroomian, Ann Ransford and clerk Armine Hacopian, the longest-serving member on the board. VIPs also present included city fathers Mayor Ara Najarian and City Councilman Dave Weaver, college Foundation President Ellyn Semler and college Supt./President emeritus John Davitt.
