Honoring John and Linda Seiter

The centerpiece of Celebrating Children is the presentation of the Hathaway-Sycamores’ Celebrating Children Award. Each year, the event honors an individual or family that exemplifies the values of integrity, leadership and commitment to the well-being of children, adults, families, and communities. For more than 100 years, these values have served as the foundation for the compassion and care that each child receives at Hathaway-Sycamores. On September 24th @ Dodger Stadium, Hathaway-Sycamores will present the Celebrating Children Award to honorees John and Linda Seiter.

Longtime residents of Pasadena, the Seiters also have been longtime supporters of Hathaway-Sycamores. For her part, Linda Seiter served on Hathaway-Sycamores’ Board of Directors from 1996 through 2005. She also has been actively involved in the agency’s annual “Shot-At-A-Million” golf fundraiser, not only as a player, but also as the host of several post-event parties. Additionally, for more than a decade, the couple has sponsored an annual holiday dinner for the youth in residential treatment at Hathaway-Sycamores’ El Nido campus in Altadena. Currently, the Seiters are directing their support toward Hathaway-Sycamores’ Transitional Independent Living Program – an innovative initiative designed to assist youth emancipating from the foster-care system by providing housing and helping them to master the skills needed to live independently.

The Seiters are dedicated philanthropists. “We really believe strongly in giving back and supporting the community,” said John Seiter, who – prior to retirement – spent the majority of his career with The Capital Group, where he served as a member of its Board of Directors, and as executive vice president of a subsidiary business, Capital Guard Trust Company. In addition to their generous support of Hathaway-Sycamores, the Seiters also donate to other worthwhile organizations through the Seiter Family Foundation. Their Foundation’s overarching focus is on the greater Pasadena area and the San Gabriel Valley, with a particular emphasis on education, children, and medicine.”
