Dear Friends and Family of PAIF,

The Pasadena/Altadena Ivy Foundation (Foundation), in coordination with the leadership of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Eta Lambda Omega Chapter (Pasadena, CA), recognizes the public health risks the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) poses not only to our community, but communities around the world.

In an abundance of caution, and in response to the March 19, 2020 “Shelter-In-Place” order by California State Governor Gavin Newsom; we have decided to cancel the May 9, 2020 Scholarship Jazz Brunch (SJB).

While the cancellation of the Scholarship Jazz Brunch does not eclipse our commitment to both recognize and award the scholastic achievement of matriculating high school seniors in the San Gabriel Valley, it is important to note that we will proceed with awarding scholarships in 2020 as planned.

Our commitment to help mitigate any potential transmission of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), far outweighs the financial loss the Foundation will encounter this year as a result of cancelling this event. While we will honor any SJB refund requested between now and May 9, 2020, we do ask that you wholeheartedly consider converting your ticket purchase into a 100% tax deductible donation to the Pasadena Altadena Ivy Foundation as your donation will help fund the Scholarships for 2021.

If you have already purchased a SJB ticket or have paid for a vendor booth, you may request a refund by emailing INFO@THEPAIF.ORG. Again, registered guests and vendors who do not request a refund by the aforementioned date, will have their ticket purchase converted to a tax deductible donation. As always, donor receipts will be available upon request. We thank you in advance for your continued support of our scholars. Stay safe, be well and we will be back with this amazing and worthwhile event in 2021!
