Oakmont Of Santa Clarita Putting On Classic Car Show To Fundraise For Veteran Charity
Senior living community Oakmont Of Santa Clarita is organizing a classic car show and barbeque as part of their philanthropic series.
The staff of Oakmont of Santa Clarita and its residents are constantly working together to be involved in the community.
In June they hosted an art show with the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association where they partnered with local artists in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Oakmont operates a community service program for the residents, Oakmont Contributes, with the core element of connecting residents with their community.
Oakmont of Santa Clarita Marketing Director Mary Dembkowski added, “Connect is giving our residents the opportunity to give back to the community.”
“Every quarter we have a different theme, and last quarter it was all about about animals and pets. So we partnered with Shelter Hope Pet (Shop), the residents made dog beds, we volunteered at the pet shelter,” said Dembkowski. “We ended the project with a pet adoption at Oakmont.”
As this series comes to an end, Oakmont’s summer quarter will focus on veterans.
“Now we’re on to ‘Giving Back To Our Veterans,’ so on July 29 we are hosting a classic car show and barbeque at Oakmont, Saturday, July 29, at 10 in the morning,” Dembkowski announced.
The event will benefit The Wounded Warriors Project, a military and veterans charity service organization that empowers injured veterans and their families.
Oakmont of Santa Clarita is also scheduled to participate in the Walk To End All Alzheimer’s set to take place on October 7 at Bridgeport Park.
