Tip Your Cap & Pass the Hat 2023

Foothill Family was founded in 1926 in Pasadena, California by key community volunteer, Mrs. Josephine Marsh, who “passed the hat” to assist neighbors in need. She became the first director of the agency. To honor this humble origin, we continue Mrs. Marsh’s legacy by “passing the hat” to raise important funds for our client services through a friendly competition between teams. We also continue the tradition of honoring our most gracious community leaders by “tipping our caps” and thanking them for their service to Foothill Family.

The highlight of the event will take shape as we tell our story through the voices of our clients, families, and support staff. You will not want to miss the most heart-warming part of the event as we hear from community members who have received services from Foothill Family and have achieved success in their relationships. We’ll also have an opportunity to receive updates from clients who have spoken at the event previously. This is a not-miss!
