Keynote Speaker at Ojai Cares Fundraiser

Keynote Speaker at Ojai Cares Fundraiser

Our Annual Fundraiser- this year we're partnering with the beautiful Topa Mountain Winery! Thanks to your support, we're now in our 5th year of service to our community!

You'll find yourself among friends and community members, sharing a crisp glass of wine, scrumptious buffet dinner, and breathing in that Pink Moment, all while celebrating the ways we've shown up for each other since our last gathering.

Our speaker this year is the beloved Holly Thrasher. You may remember her as Ojai's former "Kingston's Candy Lady," but when breast cancer came she turned her full attention to healing, and authored a book about her experience! Holly's book "Bittersweet" will be hot off the press. We've heard she may be bringing copies!

But wait, there's more! Ojai's own, songbird Fern Barishman, will delight us and invite our participation in a sing-a-long! (And you know we all sound better after that glass of wine!)

Invite your friends! We look forward to seeing you there!
