Oakmont League Raises Funds for YWCA, GCC

Oakmont League of Glendale President Pam Sorem set a goal of making an impact in the community at the beginning of the 2022-23 club year — a goal that was recently achieved with the group’s “All in for Oakmont” fundraiser.
The event raised funds to provide assistance to YWCA’s Camp Rosie and much needed equipment for Glendale Community College’s Disabled Students programs, in addition to scholarships to GCC and high school students.
At a recent event, philanthropy chair Ellen Farewell presented checks to Tara Peterson, chief executive officer at YWCA Glendale and Pasadena, and to Shauna Hagemann and Ellen Oppenberg of GCC’s Disabled Students Programs and Services.
Scholarship chair Jackie Kubel spoke of the scholarships presented to GCC students Jasmin Balasanian and Stacy Hovhannisyan, who both plan to transfer to UCLA, and to Nicole Shahi, who plans to continue her education at West Coast University.
Scholarships were also presented to Alex Boghossian, Clark Magnet High; Melinda Khechumyan, Glendale High; Naomi Leader, Crescenta Valley High; and Kristen Marshal, Hoover High.
Sorem, who continues as president for a second term, thanked Mary Broerman, Amanda Duffy, Carol Eldred, Ellen Farewell, Mary Jo Ferrell, Kim Klosterman, Jackie Kubel, Mary Kay Prather, Liz Reed, Pam Riley, Nancy Spencer, Lydia Brown Trout and Allison Weir, for accepting leadership roles for the coming year.
