What a fabulous 7th annual Coats for Casa Pacifica Drive!

We cannot thank the community enough for coming out to our 7th Annual Coats for Casa Pacifica Drive on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at Three Springs Park in Westlake Village. Over 450 people donated 2,500 coats to local kids in need. You rock! It was a beautiful, sunny winter day in Southern California – kids and adults alike enjoyed the 30 tons of snow we brought in for sledding and play, plus free smoothies and coffee for all! We had The Hideout Playground here with fun crafts for the kids along with everyone’s favorite Ice Princess saying hello.

We want to thank our sponsors: Zwaag Termite Control, Skinny Wimp Moving, Cheryl Meyers Insurance Agency, Healthy Pet, Michael Lang Design and the City of Westlake Village for a community service grant. We could not do this event without you!

Thank you to local area businesses for their support in donating raffle prizes and having collection boxes in their storefronts. Amazing community we live in here!

More Than 2000 Coats Donated to Casa Pacifica

Coats for Casa Coat DriveMore Coats Donated to Casa…

The Coat Drive was a great success!  Saturday’s coat drive at Three Springs Park in Westlake Village, brought in over 2200 pieces of winter clothes for the kids at Casa Pacifica.  The sixth annual event was not only a big success, but the children and visitors who showed up were treated to hot chocolate and smoothies, supplied by Apollos Espresso and Shaved Ice, along with some winter activities. We had a great turnout during the four hour event. Many folks stayed to sled, play in the snow, created by Arctic Glacier, and enjoy the treats.  It was a perfect SoCal winter day and at least in this case, the cool and cloudy weather worked perfectly for the winter theme.  We can’t forget to send a big thank you out to the thirty volunteers that helped greet guests, collect items, sort and count clothing and help with the sledding area. Additionally we owe a giant debt of thanks to our sponsors, Zwaag Termite, Michael Lang Designs, and Costco and Macaroni Kids, who also helped with winter crafts.  We could not have made this happen without them. The Ventura County Star ran a wonderful piece about the Coats for Casa event in which they quoted me. It reads in part.

‘We serve children that are abused and neglected and kids that are suffering from mental health challenges — kids that are at the deepest end of our system that really need all of our help,’ said Vicki Murphy, chief advancement officer of Casa Pacifica, a nonprofit that serves 585 individuals a day ranging from 6 to 21 years old. Saturday’s event was inspired by local residents Lydia Gable, who works for Keller Williams Realty, and Rick Winters, a financial adviser at Winters Financial Group. ‘We do a lot of business in the community, and it’s a nice way of giving back to the community,’ Gable said. ‘Casa Pacifica has done a tremendous job for kids. They help the kids that are in need and they are a good local resource for families to be able to rely on.’

I am so proud to be a part of this beautiful event every year especially knowing how many children and families it helps. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart and from all of us at Lydia Gable Realty Group for all who came by, volunteered and donated.
