Raising awareness and starting the conversation about breast cancer awareness is really important not only to me as a female firefighter, but to the community,” said Pasadena Fire Fighter and Pasadena Goes Pink Organizer Danae La Trobe.A team of approximately 25 volunteers and firefighters set out on the intersections walking across the busy streets and donned their highly visible “turnouts” uniforms and a pink boots ready to be filled with independent donations.The passerby’s in Pasadena have been extremely generous. Our firefighters have been walking up and down the streets asking for donations and it’s just been a great event today,” said La Trobe.One hundred percent of donations received go into a special fund that provides breast cancer patients and survivors in the community with services who cannot afford them.“We’re asking for donations to donate to our charity which is Huntington Hospital’s Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast Center,” said La Trobe.The PFD raised $20,000 last year through a series of events with primary funding from direct donation and merchandise sales and through a partnership with California Pizza Kitchen that hosts a side-by-side serving fundraiser event.“This year we hope to increase our sales,” said La Trobe.To find out more about Pasadena Goes Pink, visit https://www.facebook.com/pasadena.pink?fref=ts Business News Subscribe Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Your email address will not be published.

Nitish dismisses talk of JD(U) joining Union govt.

first_imgA day after senior JD(U) leader and party general secretary K.C. Tyagi had indicated that the party could consider joining Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Cabinet if the party was invited to join the government at the Centre on a proportional basis, party president, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday dismissed all such talk as ‘faltu’ (frivolous). Earlier, after the 2019 parliamentary poll results, the BJP had ignored the JD(U)’s demand for “proportional representation” in the Union Cabinet.Mr. Tyagi had on Wednesday said that if there was an invitation to join the Union Cabinet on the basis of “proportional representation” from the Prime Minister and Home Minister Amit Shah, who is also BJP president, then “we will welcome the step”. The JD(U) leader, who was addressing media persons following Mr. Kumar’s re-election as national president at the party’s national council meeting in Delhi, added that “the BJP should adjust with the JD(U) at the Centre” as Mr. Kumar had given its NDA ally proportional representation in the State government. Mr. Tyagi’s comment had fuelled speculation that the JD(U) was possibly looking to drive a hard bargain with the BJP for a Cabinet berth amid the saffron party’s face-off over power-sharing with alliance partner Shiv Sena in Maharashtra.However, on Thursday, the JD(U) President rubbished all such speculation. “Aisi koi baat nahin hui hai… sab faltu baat hai (no such talks have taken place… all this is frivolous talk),” said a poker-faced Mr. Kumar, while responding to queries from journalists in Patna on the sidelines of a function to commemorate the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.Earlier this year, after winning 16 seats in Bihar in the general elections, compared to the BJP’s 17, the JD(U) had found its demand for “proportional representation” in the Union Cabinet being brushed aside by the BJP, which had asserted that alliance partners would only get “symbolic representation” in the government.The contradictory statements by the top JD(U) leaders over joining the Union Cabinet drew a jibe from the Opposition RJD. “Some senior JD(U) leaders are desperate and keen to join the Union Cabinet but their leader Nitish Kumar is blocking their road,” remarked RJD leader and party MLA Bhai Birendra. “So, when party leader K.C. Tyagi expressed desire, Mr. Kumar snubbed it the day after,” quipped Mr. Birendra. The Congress too took a swipe at the JD(U) over the issue. “Nitish Kumar is soon going to land in a very difficult situation within his party itself,” said senior Bihar Congress leader Prem Chandra Mishra. “Bihar is slated to go for Assembly polls next year and there is much to be seen between the BJP and JD(U)… the real drama will unfold when talks on seat sharing would start between the two partners,” he added.last_img read more
