Join CAS for our Centennial Celebration

For the past nine years the Convalescent Aid Society has held an annual Garden Party in October. This year the 10th annual Garden Party will evolve into the Centennial Celebration. We will honor the founders of the Convalescent Aid Society and acknowledge individuals that have continued to guide and support CAS through the years.

The 10th annual Garden Party evolves into a Centennial Celebration


The Centennial Celebration
Sunday October 29, 2023 at 4pm

The Centennial Celebration will be held at Castle Green, 99 South Raymond St, Pasadena, on Sunday October 29th from 4-7 PM. Castle Green is a nationally registered Historic Monument and officially designated Pasadena Treasure. Its gardens and ballroom have been host to many celebratory events during Pasadena’s history. It is also the place that the Convalescent Aid Society was founded in 1923.

At the Celebration you will enjoy food and beverages while listening to music of the decades and walking through the lovely gardens. The Opportunity Drawing will have lots of surprises as well as some of the original favorites. We will adjourn to the Castle Green ballroom for a program of amazement and wonder as well as cake and a champagne toast.

There will be other surprises and events at CAS to celebrate 100 years but you won’t want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to join us. This will truly mark an important watershed moment for the Convalescent Aid Society. We can’t wait to see you there!
