Operation Confidence will host a “Tribute To Our Veterans” gala on Sunday, July 30, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Knollwood Country Club in Granada Hills. The event will honor those who served in the armed forces.
Proceeds go toward the nonprofit organization’s Turning Point House Project for purchase and refurbish a low-cost housing for homeless disabled veterans. Veterans will live in the home where they will receive nutrition, assistance with mental health and substance abuse issues, adaptive equipment and other related services to help them become a productive member of society and live independently once again.
Honorees include Charles (Chuck) Schwartz, Commander, Jewish War Veteran Post 603, San Fernando Valley; Officers Anna Villasenor and Jeffrey Johnson, Los Angeles Police Department-Devonshire Division; Sgt. Coy Reyes, U.S. Marine, Readjustment Counseling Therapist, Chatsworth Vet Center and Sepulveda Outstation; and Shanty Acevedo, Global War on Terror Outreach Specialist for the Chatsworth and Sepulveda Vet Centers.
The event includes dinner, the award presentation and fashion show. To attend the gala or become a sponsor, visit OperationConfidence.org or contact Executive Director Consuella Mackey directly at (818) 368-4407 (office) or (818) 282-4916 (cell).
