Gold Country Community Services (GCCS) will be hosting their “Second Annual End of Summer Bash” at 5:30 p.m. on September 16 at Rincon del Rio. The event is an annual fundraiser to assist Gold Country Community Services, a local nonprofit, ensure that vital senior services are available in Western Nevada County.

Since GCCS began providing home delivered meals, every four years the organization has had to compete for federal and state grant funding that doesn’t keep pace with their senior population. In each funding cycle, more federal and state dollars are lost to urban areas where there are higher concentrations of low income and ethnic diversity. Proceeds from the “Bash” will help raise funds for Meals on Wheels, the Senior Firewood program and other vital services that GCCS provides.

This year’s bash, co-hosted by Rincon del Rio and Jardin del Rio, is an all-inclusive event. Tickets for this event are $75 each, which includes farm fresh food, beverages and dancing to a mix of 60’s and 70’s tunes played by the Jim Wright Band. In addition, Aubree Young has spent the past few weeks, along with her mother, Carol, planning and preparing a variety of backyard-beach games, boat races, piglet races and a demonstration game of Human Hungry Hippos.

For more information or to purchase tickets to the End of Summer Bash, call the GCCS Business Office at 530-615-4541.
