Mardi Gras Fundraiser Feb 2023


Pleased to announce that the Mardi Gras Fundraiser sold out. The generous donations for the live, silent auction, from sponsors and from attendees overflowed with giving. We cannot thank Rotary Club of Ventura South enough for being our friends & partner for this epic event to succeed. Special thanks to John & Linda Zaruka for use of The Tower Club + all their incredible contributions towards both Rotary and Turning Point at this event. Special thanks also to Bre and her team of volunteers from Ventura College nursing program. Plus volunteers from both Turning Point and Rotary!

With that said, the best photo we can share to sum all this up are below. This was the idea of our very own Amanda (HR Manager). It was painted with care for the Mardi Gras live auction by clients from our New Visions Rehabilitation Center (which provides an amazing support program to help those suffering from severe mental illness). This special wheelbarrow (restored and provided by Growing Works!) was filled with good “spirits” both inside and out. It sold during auction for $1500 to the highest bidder!
