Pin-Ups, Pann’s & Patriots:
Our Veteran Appreciation Day on Wednesday, October 8th
Historic LA Landmark, Pann’s Restaurant, joins forces with award-winning nonprofit
Pin-Ups for Vets with classic homestyle cooking that supports hospitalized veterans
Moved by the recent news about Veteran's healthcare or lack thereof, Jim Poulos, owner of Pann’s Restaurant in Los Angeles, knew that he wanted to do something to support America’s hospitalized Veterans and their families.
In an effort to help our heroes, Pann’s will be donating 100% of sales from their Thanksgiving style meals served between 11am - 9pm on Wednesday, October 8th to the award-winning nonprofit, Pin-Ups for Vets. In Pin-Ups for Vets signature style the day will be filled with retro fun, classic homestyle cooking, calendar girls, raffle prizes, live entertainment and more. Jim’s Family is an example of the American Dream, and this fundraiser will support the troops that have given his family the freedom to thrive. Pann’s 56 year history began with George and Rena Panagopoulos. They moved to California. George, a Greek immigrant, enlisted in the US Air Force and was later sent to Italy where he cooked in the field for our troops and Generals during World War II.
By joining us for a meal, Los Angeles can come together as a community to show their support for our nations injured heroes. The goal is to raise in excess of $10,000 for the Pin-Ups for Vets charity that has been working diligently since 2006 to support hospitalized veterans and deployed troops.
Founded by the vivacious Gina Elise, Pin-Ups For Vets raises funds to improve Veterans' healthcare, donates funds to VA hospitals for medical equipment and program expansion, improves quality of life for Veterans across the United States through personal bedside visits to deliver gifts and show appreciation, promotes volunteerism at Veterans Hospitals, conducts boosting events for military spouses, and delivers care packages to troops.
2015 marks the organization’s 9th calendar and almost a decade of supporting our American Heroes. Every year the nonprofit is featured in the media for the work they do to bring hope to veterans through more than 6,000 in-person bedside visits with hospitalized Veterans nationwide. The organization has been able to donate over $50,000 in rehabilitation equipment to VA Hospitals across the U.S. thanks to the sales of their calendar.

Each autumn, Pasadena resident and avid gardener Maezie Powell would donate her prize-winning pumpkins to the Children’s Garden at the Huntington Library. In August of 2012, vandals destroyed Maezie’s pumpkin patch. The story made the newspapers and the TV news. The crime was never solved, but it brought out Maezie’s neighbors who offered their help and support. Neighbors who had never met their neighbors helped put the garden back in shape. Maezie also received pumpkin seeds, cards and letters from all over the country. When Maezie showed her friend, Lynn, the collection of letters and cards, Lynn was so moved she went home and wrote a story about it that night. Lynn then asked Maezie's grandaughter, Kyle, to illustrate it. And, so the creation of a heartwarming children's book began. Come to Crowell Public Library on Wednesday, October 8 at 7:00 p.m. to Meet the Authors in the Barth Community Room.
Lynn Martin Snowden has devoted her life to children and their creative endeavors. Teaching students of all ages for over 36 years, her career has spanned both coasts of the United States in a variety of disciplines. Currently, she is an educator in southern California. Maezie’s Pumpkin Patch is her first children’s book. Kyle Sydney Powell grew up surrounded by a family of artists and can always be found with a pencil or camera in her hand. She received her MFA in New York and has been a graphic artist, and an art instructor for both children and adults. She lives just blocks from the great pumpkin patch.
Maezie Powell, a remarkably youthful ninety-five year-old, gives her pumpkin seeds to all who are interested in creating a garden of their own. Crowell Library and their Friends are hoping to see Ms. Powell in person at this very special evening!
