Assemblymember Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake), State Senator Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge) and Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) have announced grants to be distributed to six non-profit agencies within the 21st State Senate District, the 43rd and 44th State Assembly Districts. The grants of $2,930 each came from monies raised by the annual Women in Business luncheon held earlier this year.
Women in Business celebrates women who have contributed to the greater good of the region by advancing business, creating new jobs and serving the community.
Assemblymember Mike Gatto has chosen the Glendale Youth Alliance and the Armenian Nurses Association as recipients of the Women in Business grants in the 43rd Assembly District.
“Supporting these great local charities furthers the Women in Business spirit by helping to empower the women in our local communities. The Glendale Youth Alliance helps women and families by providing mentoring and job skills training. And The Armenian Nurses Association provides free healthcare to low-income women in need. I salute the work of all the great charities for which the annual Women in Business luncheon was able to raise funds and awareness,” said Assemblymember Gatto.
In the 21st State Senate District, Senator Carol Liu has directed donations from the Women in Business event to support the YWCA Glendale Women and Girl’s Financial Literacy Program and Women At Work in Pasadena.
“I am happy that the Women in Business event has generated support for these important programs that empower women and girls with knowledge and the opportunities they need to achieve their full potential,” Sen. Liu said. “Managing personal finances and securing meaningful work are fundamental to leading an independent and fulfilling life,” she added.
Assemblymember Anthony Portantino has designated the YWCA Pasadena – Foothill Valley and the Flintridge Center Reintegration Council to each receive a grant:
“Residents of the 44th Assembly District are blessed to have these two terrific organizations serving the San Gabriel Valley,” explained Assemblymember Portantino. “Both have outstanding legacies and I’m grateful to the tremendous number of people who support the successful Women In Business event that raised money to continue these positive missions.”
Mike Gatto is the Chairman of the Appropriations Committee of the California State Assembly. He represents the cities of Burbank, Glendale, La Canada-Flintridge, La Crescenta, Montrose, the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Atwater Village, and portions of the Hollywood Hills and East Hollywood. www.asm.ca.gov/gatto
