We invite you to join us for our June Schmoozer on Thursday, June 16th from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Back Bay Bistro at the Newport Dunes, 1131 Back Bay Dr, Newport Beach, CA 92660. To support our charity partner Veterans First, we ask members and attendees to please bring full-sized and sample-sized toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, razors, shaving cream, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. for care packages). Also, please bring a written thank you card to thank a veteran for their service.
So far this year, we have raised over $500 in cash, over $700 in gift cards and have collected over 2,000 items for our partner charities! We couldn't continue to make such positive impacts in our community without our members and attendees, so thank you! Help us keep this momentum going by inviting your friends and colleagues to attend our June Schmoozer to benefit veterans in need in our community!
Veterans First is the only 501c(3) agency in Orange County that works to provide services exclusively to our region’s homeless and at-risk veterans. Our organization provides a multitude of services including housing, meals, life coaching counseling, life skills, access to mental health counseling, benefit counseling, transportation, as well as job training and employment placement assistance. For over forty years, Veterans First has set their goal of honoring every brave man or woman who has served this country by helping to restore dignity to those whose sacrifices for our freedoms have left them in need.
We are asking attendees to bring full-sized and sample-sized toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, razors, shaving cream, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. for care packages). Also, please bring a written thank you card to thank a veteran for their service.
If you know of an outstanding member that is doing good things in the community, please nominate them for "Member of the Month" by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also nominate yourself. Our "Member of the Month" is chosen by our board members.
