“Our Junior Builders did a fantastic job in capturing our industry’s history while highlighting how we are going to build future communities,” said BIASC CEO Jeff Montejano. BIASC is embarking on its 100th anniversary celebration and we are excited about having our young Junior Builders represent our industry for this historic event.”

BIASC will hold their unveiling on the grounds, with special attendance and speech by Amy (Kauzlaric) Wainscott, President and Chairman of the Board for the 2023 Pasadena Tournament of Roses®. Other notable attendees and speaking guests include Senator Bob Hertzberg, 18th Senate District, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, 5th District, and Scott Drury, CEO of SoCalGas. UCLA and USC football alumni and Jr. Builders along with the region’s most prestigious home builders will be in attendance as well.

“The Tournament House holds incredible history and is a pivotal landmark for everything the Tournament of Roses represents,” said Dave Bartlett, Vice President, Land Entitlement – Brookfield Properties Development and BIASC Chairman. “It is the ideal location to mark the unveiling of the Building Industry Association of Southern California’s Jr. Builders float design.
