An Evening Out with OLLI@Pacific

June 21, 2019

OLLI@Pacific celebrated their success and spread the word about the Generosity Never Retires fundraising campaign on Thursday, June 13th at Klinkerbrick Winery in Lodi.

 

Over 100 OLLI members and staff came together to enjoy a lovely evening of wine, appetizers by Bon Appetit catering, and music by Kevin Swenson, a recent graduate from the Pacific Conservatory of Music. Program Director Jennifer Juanitas shared information about OLLI@Pacific’s finances, gave a status update about the campaign and read a letter written from an OLLI scholarship recipient. Everyone in attendance enjoyed the beautiful scenery, cool Delta breeze and catching up with friends.

Halfway to our goal!

May 14, 2019

Just six weeks into our campaign and we have exceeded the halfway mark! This is a fantastic start, THANK YOU to everyone for their generous donations. Let's keep this momentum going!

 

Scholarships: As part of this fundraising effort we have received $600 towards our scholarship fund which covers approximately six new OLLI memberships in the next semester.

 

Improving Our Variety of Classes: We are adding new programs in the fall, including special programming for "Active Aging Week" and new courses such as Exploring Latin America and Death Over Dinner.

 

Increased Outreach: Thanks to our wonderful partnership with the Development Department, we have identified a foundation that has similar goals with aging societies and we are applying for a grant from them.  We have specifically asked for money for scholarships and programming for our lunch and learn programs. The lunch and learn programs would be open to the public allowing us to expand our reach to our community.

 

Make sure to save the date for our Generosity Never Retires Summer Social, Thursday, June 13th, 5:30-7:30 at Klinker Brick Winery. Invitations coming soon!

 

We are so grateful for your support of lifelong learning at OLLI@Pacific.

 

Sincerely,

Jennifer Juanitas
