Heart for Bakersfield 2020
- First Responders
Guests enjoyed the music of Amy Adams & The Rising Stars from the comfort of their homes.
Our sponsors were given the option of designating their sponsorship in the name of a “COVID hero” from one of the five categories (seen above). During the live event, we highlighted a representative from each category and celebrated all of our heroes.
Before the virtual event, everyone was invited to visit the Garden Pathways Facebook page to honor a COVID hero!
Proceeds benefit Garden Pathways mentoring and educating programs for at-risk and low-income families and youth.
INDIVIDUAL – $85

We were delighted to recognize Beverly Camp, Robin Fleming, Lili Marsh and Janis Varner as our 2018 “Women with a Heart for Bakersfield.” Friends, family, and colleagues celebrated their exceptional contributions to our community, along with the contributions of our past honorees.
A full house gathered at Seven Oaks Country Club to honor these women, to hear stories of mentoring transformation, and to raise support for Garden Pathways mentoring, training, and education programs.
Our past honorees include these amazing women in our community. Click on the names for bios.
