Recent donor reception was a success

The OC Foundation hosted its first donor reception in quite a while on March 23, in conjunction with the OC LIVE event. Foundation supporters gathered in the PAB Conference Center to enjoy camaraderie, local wine, and tasty snacks before watching Hermanos Herrera take the stage for their incredible performance.

The reception presented an opportunity to thank the Foundation’s financial supporters for their generous contributions. President’s Circle ($1,000 and up) and Condor Club (monthly giving donors) enjoyed the opportunity to meet one another, share experiences, and access great seats at the performance.
