Mary Pinola – 2020 Exemplary Leadership Honoree

The CFV extends a happy “congratulations” to Mary Pinola on receiving Business Life Magazine’s 2020 Exemplary Leadership Honoree Award!This year’s presentation was in conjunction with the magazine’s annual Women Achievers Awards held virtually. Ms. Pinola was behind the establishment of the Mary Pinola/Crescenta Valley Chamber Education Fund, a donor advised fund, with the CFV back in 1991. At that time, the Fund’s starting balance was $1,200; today, Mary Pinola and the Fund’s Advisory Board grant out well-over $20,000 annually toward nonprofits and schools for educational needs. Under Ms. Pinola’s energetic leadership, the Fund is continually growing through donations and proceeds from its well-known Smart-a-Thon event. If you wish to celebrate Mary Pinola on her award, please consider making a gift in her honor which will go directly toward the Education Fund!
