Saturday’s festivities celebrating local nonprofit Men Educating Men About Health (MEMAH) ended with a surprising twist for founder Jim Morris when guests and supporters called him to be honored along with the night’s three other honorees.
The event was MEMAH’s gala. The organization honored Pasadena entrepreneur Robert C. Davidson as Man of The Year 2016, former Pasadena Water and Power General Manager Phyllis Currie as Woman of The Year 2016, and Kaiser Permanente in Pasadena as Business of the Year 2016.
About 55 gathered for the event in the Art Center South Campus’s former postal facility building, for wine and conversation in the lobby against the throbbing beat of African drums.
Then the group moved upstairs to a large U-shaped table, where each guest introduced himself or herself. After dinner and dessert by California Pizza Kitchen, the program highlighted the people of the year and the local institution of the year.
