Description

The Museum SFV is cordially inviting you and a guest to a VIP reception on Wednesday, July 24th from 4:00 - 7:00 pm to celebrate its Powerhouse Women of the SFV exhibit.

There will be a program with special guest Joy Picus speaking beginning at 5:00 pm. Several local leaders and dignitaries have been invited.

The first exhibit in this series centers around Government, one of many Valley sectors The Museum SFV intends to highlight.

We will feature two special San Fernando Valley Powerhouse Women - Joy Picus and Leah Cartabruno. Although each woman's path to success was different, both women have been influencers, first for their gender in their fields and an inspiration to other men and women.

In 1977, Joy was the first woman elected to the Los Angeles City Council from the San Fernando Valley. She was a wife, mother of three, and civically active from childhood, but did not run for political office until 1973 in her 40's.

In 1969, Leah Cartabruno was the first woman ever professionally hired by the California State Legislature as a Committee Consultant. Through her non-civil service position, she worked with various state senators and assemblymen to help research and write bills in Committee.

Reception will include food and beverages, There will be docents for tours of The Museum as well.

Free parking. Elevator and ADA access.

We request an RSVP for this event, so please register today.

Thank you,

Jackie Langa
Vice President
