Costa and Claud Beltran, chef and owner of Bacchus’ Kitchen.All 84 holiday wishes of the 12 teens living in Hillsides off-campus group homes were fulfilled by members of H100, Hillsides young professional support group, during their Fall Member Social held on November 19. Some 60 guests gathered together at Chef Claud Beltran’s new restaurant in Pasadena, Bacchus’ Kitchen, to share an evening of conversation, cocktails, appetizers, and giving back.The restaurant, still under construction with exposed walls and little furniture, provided a unique and elegantly sparse scene for the event. The room was dominated by an eight-foot silver Christmas tree from which the individual wishes of the teens dangled. The gifts asked for were new bedding, holiday wishes, and stocking stuffers for the teens.“The H100 group has taken the teens who live at Hillsides satellite homes under their wings, which is important because often during the holidays, donors focus mainly on the younger children and the teens get left out,” said Hillsides director of development Carrie Espinoza. “With these gifts, the teens will have a happy holiday and be reminded that someone cares.”During the evening, a former resident of Hillsides, Jamie Steinberg, spoke. Steinberg lived at Hillsides 27 years ago when she was 10. She told the guests that after being shuffled through 20 to 25 foster homes as a young child, she was placed at Hillsides. “I felt for the first time that people cared about me,” she said. “I got a sense of security I never felt before.” While at Hillsides, Steinberg received her first gift, a stuffed animal, that she still owns today. She also credits Hillsides with finding her a loving adoptive mother.Hillsides chief executive Joseph M. Costa also addressed the group, calling H100 “the future of Hillsides,” and thanking them for the considerable contributions they’d made to Hillsides. He also invited them to support the agency in its current capital campaign to raise $12 million for a renovation of the aging main campus in Pasadena. He explained that any donations made by the end of March, 2015 to the capital campaign will be matched.Bacchus’ Kitchen is located at 1384 Washington Boulevard in Pasadena and will open in early 2015.Hillsides, founded in 1913, is a premier provider dedicated to improving the overall well-being and functioning of children, youth, and families in need throughout Los Angeles County. Hillsides offers residential treatment services for children who cannot live at home or who face emotional and/or behavioral challenges. The group teen satellite homes offer older youth the opportunity to develop independent living skills, job training, and community experiences.

  • Dodgers’ top prospect Alex Verdugo arrives for audition

    first_imgSAN DIEGO >> Opportunity knocked Thursday morning and Alex Verdugo almost slept through it.Triple-A Oklahoma City manager Bill Haselman had to call twice to give Verdugo the news that he would be called up to the Dodgers when rosters expanded on Friday.“I had missed the first one, picked up the second one,” Verdugo said. “He just told me all the hard work I had put in to the season, it all paid off because I’m going to the big leagues. My first reaction was, ‘You’re messing with me, right?’ He told me he wouldn’t mess around about that.”Haselman had other calls to make. Along with Verdugo, the Dodgers also added Rob Segedin, O’Koyea Dickson and right-hander Fabio Castillo from Triple-A in the first wave of September call-ups. Veteran outfielder Andre Ethier and left-hander Clayton Kershaw were activated from the disabled list. Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year Wilmer Font will also be added from OKC today. For Dickson, the call was only the second-best thing to happen to him this week. His son was born on Monday.“Greatest week of my life,” Dickson said after arriving in San Diego.Verdugo’s arrival was the most anticipated of the group. The 21-year-old outfielder is the top-ranked position player prospect in the Dodgers’ system and the 28th-ranked prospect in baseball overall.But he didn’t expect to see the big leagues this year.“I wanted to. Everybody wants to be in the big leagues. But I didn’t think I was going to get up here this year,” Verdugo said. “It’s not my Rule 5 (draft) year and they’re obviously the best team in baseball. I just didn’t think it. But I’m happy it worked out this way.” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts wasted no time putting Verdugo to work. He started in center field and made his major-league debut Friday night against the San Diego Padres.“He’s had a great year,” Roberts said of Verdugo. “With young players, sometimes it’s best to get them in the fire and get them going. I know he’s excited about it. He’s had a tremendous season. He’s earned this opportunity.”That opportunity could grow larger as the month progresses. Joc Pederson has regressed both offensively and defensively – and clearly fallen out of favor with the Dodgers’ decision-makers (he was not included in the first wave of call-ups). Segedin could be a useful right-handed bat off the bench (both down the stretch and possibly in the postseason) for a team that leans heavily to the left.But Verdugo could play his way into a larger role, much as Corey Seager did after a September call-up in 2015. He supplanted Jimmy Rollins at shortstop and wound up batting third for the Dodgers in their NL Division Series against the New York Mets.Verdugo doesn’t have to supplant anyone, just prove he is big league-ready enough to provide a left-handed complement to Chris Taylor in center field (or left field). But Roberts stopped short of calling this an audition for Verdugo.“I think there’s an opportunity,” Roberts said. “He can defend at all three (outfield positions). He’s a tough out. He can run the bases. We want to see what it looks like up here.”Asked if that opportunity could extend into the postseason, Roberts pointed to the calendar and said “that’s getting ahead of ourselves” before saying everything depends on performance.“It’s up to the player,” Roberts said. “It’s always up to the player.”AlsoRoberts said he plans to give both Dickson and Ethier starts in today’s doubleheader. Ethier has not played since Sunday in Triple-A due to a stiff neck. He will start the second game Saturday, Roberts said.To clear spots on the 40-man roster for Friday’s moves, left-hander Grant Dayton was moved to the 60-day DL. Outfielder Brett Eibner and left-hander Luis Ysla were designated for assignment. Dayton underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this week.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
