“Hillsides summer camp starts the day the school year is over from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Staff keeps the children and youth challenged throughout the summer with activities that help them relax, refresh and heal, "said Nancy Garni, director of development. “And that’s what you’ve helped Hillsides do with your support at the Bartlett Cup."
Tennis players participated in a round robin competition at the Santa Anita County Tennis Courts in Arcadia. While Guild guests played bridge and bunco at the Arcadia home of Anita Peralaz, followed by a savory lunch catered by Kim’s Katering also in Arcadia.
