Spindrift School of Performing Arts (SSPA) utilized a Pacificans Care Community Grant Program requesting funds to continue to offer free Performing Arts Workshops held at Sunset Ridge Elementary School. The after-school Workshops are extremely popular every year, teaching approximately 60 1st – 5th-grade students’ music, dance, and theater. Pacificans Care was able to give SSPA a $2,000 grant to help them continue to keep enrollment at capacity. SSPA & PAW says, “students cultivate social, emotional skills of collaboration, self-confidence and self-expression.” We are so grateful Pacifica has such an amazing performing arts school, Spindrift School of Performing Arts.
Double Gold Wine Tasting Fundraiser presented by Pacificans Care and Oceana Market was a flowing success. Your support and generosity helped raise over $27,000 to help our neighbors in need! On May 1, 2022, at the Pedro Point Firehouse, 125 attendees enjoyed over 75 award winning international wines along with tasty food, lively music, lots of laughter and friendly conversation. Our very own Pacificans Care Bear even made a special appearance. All funds raised at our event support Pacifica’s four core agencies: Pacifica Resource Center, Pacifica Youth Service Bureau, Pacifica Child Care Services and Pacifica Senior Services. Our cup runneth over and we want to thank all of you, especially our event sponsors, from the bottom of our hearts, for making this possible.
