Los Altos Auxiliary and Friends Raise a Glass in Support of Hathaway-Sycamores

first_img Business News Community News 200 guests attended the sold-out Los Altos Auxiliary “Wines of France” benefit at the picturesque La Cañada Thursday Club in La Cañada Flintridge. The 6th annual wine event, the largest fundraiser of the year for the 40-member group, raises funds for Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services.Guests, mingling under the oak tree shaded patio, enjoyed seven highly rated regional French wines, starting with a sparkling Crémant followed by crisp elegant whites and then moving on to heartier lush reds, including both a Bourgogne Blanc and a Vouvray and a Châteufneuf-du-Pape and a Côtes du Rhône. Light appetizers, prepared specifically to pair with the selected wines, were served and an impressive array of silent-auction baskets were on display for bidding.For the second year, volunteer culinary students prepared and served the food offerings under the direction of Chef Jamie Colboth-MacLeod from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Los Angeles. Los Altos also partnered with the new Gelson’s Market in La Cañada, who underwrote a generous portion of the food costs, along with Trader Joe’s La Canada and Broadleaf Game.Proceeds from the event, which was co-chaired by La Cañada Flintridge residents Michele Listo and Diane Poryes, will be used to help care for and brighten the lives of youngsters – many of whom have endured unimaginable trauma – who live at Hathaway-Sycamores’ El Nido campus in Altadena. (Hathaway-Sycamores is one of Los Angeles County’s largest, private providers of children’s mental-health services, delivering a comprehensive continuum of services to more than 8,700 children and families annually.)

Lakers blow a big lead, rally to beat Bulls for 4th straight win

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersRelated Articles Back in Chicago, Luol Deng says he still hopes for trade or buyout from Lakers “We struggled without a point guard in different stretches,” Coach Luke Walton said, “but down at the very end of the game, when it was winning time, Brandon stepped up nicely.”For Ingram, it was the kind of game the Lakers have come to expect. He was 10 for 18 from the field and made three of his five 3-point attempts. He added nine rebounds and five assists.“That is the game we want to see,” Walton said, “but I still think he can be more aggressive with the scoring. Yes, we are looking for him to do all those other things. … That is the type of player that he is. And that is when he is at his best, when he is doing all the things on the basketball court.”After Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic made two free throws to nudge the Bulls ahead 97-96, the Lakers forced four misses and a turnover on the Bulls’ next five possessions. The Lakers won another game with their defense.“That is how you win consistently,” Walton said. “So many NBA games come down to the end, and the players in this league are so talented that if you are not able to count on getting stops, it is 50-50 who wins those games.” One game after the Lakers (19-29) shot 21 for 36 from the foul line and missed 10 free throws in the fourth quarter, the Lakers shot 75 percent from the line against the Bulls, including 12 for 15 in the final period.The night was shaping up as a wasted opportunity for the Lakers, who led by as many as 17 points and held a 12-point advantage entering the fourth quarter. But the Bulls got hot in the final period, with Mirotic and Denzel Valentine combining to make six 3-pointers.Chicago outscored the Lakers 20-6 to start the fourth, taking a 92-90 lead on a 3-pointer by Valentine with 5:38 left. Before that, the Bulls’ last lead was at 4-3 in the opening minutes.The Bulls regained a 97-96 lead on a pair of free throws by Mirotic, but the Lakers scored nine straight points before Bulls’ rookie Lauri Markkanen knocked down a corner 3 with 13.3 seconds left.Mirotic led the Bulls with 18 points, while Valentine and Bobby Portis each added 16 points. The Bulls shot 47.2 percent from 3-point range, while the Lakers made just five of their 24 attempts from deep.In a matchup against his twin brother, Robin, Lakers center Brook Lopez scored 17 points, only the second time he has hit that mark since mid-November, but did not play after checking out with 3:07 remaining in the third period.Walton said he planned to return to Lopez in the fourth quarter, but the Bulls stuck with a small lineup, so Walton kept Randle and Kyle Kuzma on the floor.Walton called Lopez the Lakers’ “most consistent, best player” against the Bulls.“I felt bad for Brook,” Walton said, “but he was great tonight.”🎥 With a strong showing from start to finish, the Lakers begin their road trip with a win over the Bulls, 108-103 #LakersWin pic.twitter.com/ucb5xirGUn— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 27, 2018center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error PreviousLos Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball signs autographs before the team’s NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls on Friday, Jan. 26, 2018, in Chicago.

(AP Photo/Matt Marton)ExpandCHICAGO — A 17-point lead had vanished. The modest winning streak was on the verge of doing the same. As the Lakers fought to hang on against the Bulls on Friday, Brandon Ingram sought out Julius Randle.“I told him if he’s running the lane down the middle,” Ingram said, “go attack the basket.”After Randle came up with a steal with just over two minutes left and the Lakers trailing by one, the power forward heeded Ingram’s advice. Ingram found Randle in the lane for a layup and three-point play, as the Lakers scored nine straight points to dispatch the Bulls, 108-103.Ingram scored 25 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, to lead the Lakers, who won their fourth straight to kick off a five-game trip. The Lakers have won eight of their last 10 games and have found a way to be successful without rookie point guard Lonzo Ball, who missed his sixth straight game due to left knee soreness.last_img read more

Even in India, the boxing stalwart MC Mary Kom has taken to the internet in an education programme organised by the Boxing Federation of India (BFI), where the Olympian interacted with many rising talents in the country’s boxing scene.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/BFIThe fear of injuries in sports are something that irks any budding athlete, and to bust some misconceptions regarding the very topic, the six times world champion and 2012 London Olympics bronze medallist today spoke to almost 300 young pugilists from India.Mary Kom was joined with Elite Men Boxing Team Physician Dr. Karanjeet Singh, Elite Women Boxing Team Physician Dr. Amol Patil and Physiotherapists  Dr. Aayush Yekhande and Dr. Shikha Kedia.Advertisement The 37 year old Manipuri boxer recalled the early days of her career. The future world champion had started off without much awareness about exercise or injuries, something that is vital for a young pugilist or any athlete to know. However, interaction with the medical professionals assisted her concept of body fitness.“I started getting exposed to the team of physios and doctors and interacting with them helped me understand the importance of being aware of the body,” Mary said in the online seminar.Advertisement The session aimed to give the young boxers a proper concept of the reality in sports injuries, and help them avoid any mistakes that can prove to be career-ending. While there have been many myths among young athletes regarding weight training, flexibility or using tapes, Mary and the medical experts busted many such beliefs in the session, also stating that proper exercises can avert a number of injuries, without the requirement of surgeries.“How doing exercises can prevent so many injuries and surgery is not always the only answer, I understood much later,” Mary added, saying that it was following the words of the physio that even helped her recover from a back injury.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-10-year-old fan sends pocket money to help out financially embattled Plymouth ArgyleSachin Tendulkar reveals how he navigated an interesting battle of wits between himself and Glenn McGrath Advertisementlast_img read more
