Regis House offers hope and support every day to MacArthur Park families in need: a vibrant After-School Program, a rigorous Pre-Kindergarten program and a bustling Summer Day Camp. More than 300 children and their families benefit yearly from these programs. Other Regis House outreach efforts include a monthly food bank, a Thanksgiving Dinner serving 150 families and a “Santa Store” where families can “shop” for holiday gifts from a large assortment of donated new and gently used gifts. The common thread of these programs is dignity and hope, as Regis House provides a safe haven where entire families are supported with the resources and education to turn their lives around.
Regis House relies on our financial support to provide these outstanding programs. The Candlelight Ball is the primary fundraising event that provides the majority of the Regis House operating budget. These funds are carefully stretched to cover the year’s budget but with the current economic climate, it is challenging to raise sufficient funds to cover all the costs to run these community programs.This year, in lieu of holding a Ball, our primary fundraiser will be an opportunity drawing and patron drive. You can show your support and have the chance to win wonderful prizes all from the comfort of your own home. All proceeds go directly to Regis House Community Center, so your donation means more than ever this year.
