Special to The Press-Enterprise
The 122nd Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade is watched by millions of people worldwide on Jan. 1, starting at 8 a.m. Several local connections should add to this year's viewing pleasure.
Riverside County Regional Medical Center will honor organ donor Amanda Katherine Seraphin with a memorial floragraph portrait on the "Donate Life" float titled "Seize the Day!"
In collaboration with OneLegacy, an organ and tissue recovery organization, the medical center will honor Seraphin, whose death from a tragic equestrian accident in 2003 allowed four others to receive the gift of life.
