The Placer Care Coalition, Inc. (PCCI) is a group of about 30 individuals who gather together for about six months of the year to raise money for the homeless of Placer County.
Last year, they contributed about $10,000 to our organization which we use to buy food to feed the homeless which we distribute as far as we can to as many people as we can on a daily (well, 6 days a week) basis.
What they do to raise money is to solicit sponsors, sell tickets, run raffles, and in general, through a big “sponsored” (paid) party once a year. They gather food from restaurants, wine and beer from local wineries and breweries, and donations for gifts to hold a raffle. Last year, it was strictly a silent raffle. The years before it was both silent and open.
This year the event is on Saturday, April 30th, 2017 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at the Catta Verdera Country Club, 1111 Catta Verdera, Lincoln CA.
So, if you enjoy good food (and too much of it I would say because I went away quite full and that was just from the samples they were offered). If you enjoy some good wine or beer samples then come. Please come. If you enjoy good company and good music then it is even more important that you attend. But, if you just want to walk around a great looking golf course club house and enjoy the scenery then that’s OK too.
The big thing is to come. Bring your family. Bring your friends. Bring your neighbors. The important thing is to enjoy yourself. Your contribution will help us feed the multitudes over the course of the year because without your sponsorship, we would not be able to do that.
