In her role, Dana will oversee the logistics of the 53rd Pasadena Showcase House of Design, ensuring that all aspects of this fundraising project come together to provide guests with an enchanting experience.
“I have always wanted to be involved with Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts,” explains Dana, “and am delighted to experience the many challenges, rewards and friendships that will come my way as our organization continues its long-standing support of music and all the arts.”
Dana has been a member of PSHA since 2003. Previously, she was a volunteer for the San Marino PTAs, serving as president four times. She was very active in Grad Night for many years and chaired the event in 2002. Painting sets for Grad Night and the numerous theatrical productions triggered an enjoyment of painting. She took up watercolor painting and has studied under Eva Margueriette for quite some time. For 20 years, Dana worked at Bullock’s Pasadena as Publicity and Fashion Director, where she produced countless events from Breakfast with Santa and Lalique Crystal personal appearances to designer fashion shows.
