Fiesta At Ten Thousand Villages of Pasadena
Ten Thousand Villages of Pasadena is planning a sizzling summer celebration to mark the second anniversary of selling fair trade products at their store, located at 496 S. Lake Ave, in Pasadena. The fiesta will take place this Saturday, July 5th from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Drinks and light food will be served and a free gift will be given with every purchase made. A performance and presentation by Mojácar Flamenco will take place at 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pasadena-based Mojácar Flamenco is a dynamic group of flamenco artists led by guitarist Stephen Dick and dance dynamo Katerina Tomás. Together, they offer a virtuosic tour-de-force in which music and dance weave together in tight interplay.
Globally, Ten Thousand Villages works with over 100 artisan groups in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to bring fair trade jewelry, home décor, gifts and more to the U.S. and Canada. There are 160 retail stores in North America and all of the locations are nonprofit organizations staffed mostly by volunteers. Fair trade enables artisans from around the world to earn a fair wage and provides the opportunity for a better quality of life.
Recently, Ten Thousand Villages was named one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” by the Ethisphere Institute and Forbes Magazine. For more information about the event, please call  626.229.9892.
