Crunch Time Party Tickets Now Available

Tickets are now available to attend Crunch Time, the major fundraiser for the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses’ self-built parade float.
The popular annual event will take place from 6-10 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 29, at the War Memorial Building at 435 Fair Oaks Ave.
“South Pasadena’s Crunch Time Party is a way for community members to have a great time while helping to raise funds to support the float,” said Ed Donnelly, SPTOR president. “It is because of this support that our float rides in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade Jan. 1.”
All proceeds from the fundraiser — after expenses — go toward building and decorating the city of South Pasadena’s 2024 parade entry, “Boogie Fever.” Costs are estimated to be as much as $150,000. The float is built entirely by volunteers.
The theme of this year’s party is disco to reflect the float’s title. “Boogie Fever” was the name of a top song from the 1970s. The tune echoes the parade’s overall theme: Celebrating a World of Music. Guests are encouraged to dress in disco-era attire.
Dinner will be catered by StoneFire Grill. Beer, wine and a signature cocktail will be available. Live and silent auctions along with a raffle will be featured as part of the evening.
Tickets are $75 each and can be purchased by credit card by visiting For more information about the event, contact Wende Lee at For ticket information, contact Ellen Torres at
A separate online auction will be available in late December. This will be accessible 24 hours a day at from Dec. 28 to Dec. 31 at noon.
