Details About the Event
The Brain Injury Center of Ventura County (BIC) invites you to participate in our annual fundraiser, "An Evening of Magical Memories, 2019" again this year. I hope we can count on your support again this year.
We are excited to announce a new venue this year, The Las Posas Country Club in Camarillo, which includes gourmet meal prepared by Chef Aldo Sardi. This year's event will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019. The evening will include both silent and live auctions along with a gourmet dinner and award presentation.
Our gala annually honors the brain injury survivors, professionals, and family/caregivers for their hard work and dedication. This year we are honoring Leanne Ford as our Survivor of the Year and Margaret Harris, MPH, CBIS as our Professional of the Year.
Over 16,000 adults and children in Ventura County currently live with the permanent and devastating effects of brain injuries. Common causes include auto, sports and other accidents; military service injuries; and stroke or other illnesses. The monies raised by this event will provide funding for hands-on support, counseling, education, support groups, advocacy, and care coordination for brain injury survivors and their families.
Your sponsorship and participation at our gala will enable the Brain Injury Center to continue to offer critical services at no cost to the survivor or family. We also do not rely upon government grants. Last year's event, raised over $85,000, allowing BIC to expand its support groups to Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley as well as extend our Care Transitions (hospital to Home) Project to serve more clients. Your generosity will make this year's event an even a bigger success.
Thank you in advance for your support!
