We are hosting our 10th Anniversary Diamond Gala on Friday, November 1, 2019 at the Spartan Manor in New Port Richey as both a celebration of all we have been able to accomplish since 2009 and a fundraiser to help expand our programs and services to reach even more people in the years to come. We are dedicated to working together while changing lives in the Tampa Bay area. This evening will include dinner, live & silent auctions, environments that focus on our programs, and entertainment by the Black Honkeys.
We would like to invite you to join us in celebrating this 10-year milestone. Together we can change even more lives. We are seeking financial sponsorships along with donations for the live and silent auctions. All donations will be recognized at the Gala. All donations are tax deductible*
One Community Now Successes over the past ten years includes:
The Pack A Sack program, active in 34 different Pasco County schools provides weekend meals for 1344 food-insecure children. The program supports educational success through improved attendance and behavior.
The Neighborhood Impact program, which started in Holiday Lake Estates, has expanded to two other communities. Each week families receive a free hot meal and take classes to “Get Ahead in a Just Getting by World”. Over 60 adults have completed the course and learned skills that have placed them on the path to achieve self-sufficiency.
The One Community Now Sports program has provided opportunities for over 350 economically disadvantaged children. They participate in organized sports, learning teamwork and sportsmanship building skills through soccer, basketball and cheerleading.
Operations Stand Down has helped over 1000 homeless and at-risk Veterans to transition back into civilian life. This is accomplished by helping them find housing, gaining employment and receiving medical, dental, and mental health services.
