SPTOR Committee Wins City Image Award

The folks responsible for the Rose Parade's oldest self-built float are recognized by the City of South Pasadena.

The South Pasadena Tournament of Roses Committee is this year’s recipient of the City Image Award, incoming Mayor Richard D. Schneider announced at Saturday night's Crunch Time party.

Schneider presented the honor, awarded to individuals or groups that enhance the image of the city beyond its borders, to Committee Chair Bill Cullinane at the annual fundraising event for the City’s Tournament of Roses float.

“The Committee improved the image of the city beyond its borders when it was awarded the Fantasy Trophy for its 2012 float, ‘When Life Gives You Lemons,’ and when it creates the float that travels down Colorado Boulevard year after year in a parade attended by some 700,000 people and viewed worldwide,'' Schneider said.

The mayor added, “The committee oversees all aspects of creating, building, and funding the city’s float, which has the distinction of being the parade’s oldest self-built float.”  He said it was only fitting that the award was presented at the fundraising party for the float.

The Image Award has been presented since 2004, when former Mayor Mike Ten initiated the annual award. This year's float is entitled "Sailing the Sea of Knowledge.''
