The 117th Inaugural & Awards Ceremony marked the induction of President Lauren Kinkade-Wong and the 2024 Board of Directors. This special event occurred at the elegant grounds of The Huntington in San Marino, CA, where distinguished Realtors and industry affiliates within our association created yet another prestigious and memorable occasion.

PFAR Treasurer Jon Butler hosted the festive yet emotional ceremony. One of the highlights was the installation of 2024 President Lauren Kinkade-Wong – which started with an introduction by her mother and former Realtor, Barbara Wong, as well as the return of our age-old tradition of “Passing the Gavel.”
