LCBAG Celebration Event
To remind the people that
Each is as good as the other
And that no one is beneath

LCBAG celebrated the members and volunteers of our coalitions!
We gathered in the warmth of what unites us, the thought that our Lake County community can be a better place for all of us who live in it. We celebrated the hard work of all members and volunteers in this altruistic work. The laughter, the camaraderie, talking to each other like we’ve known each other forever, the games, the art, and delicious food brought us that much closer.
LCBAG is committed to the ideal of a better life. On this occasion, we extended our gratitude to all the members of our coalitions, with some special mentions that we will highlight below:
Dan Northcraft, Housing Coalition
Vanessa DeLira, Food Access Coalition
Sara Luna, Childcare Coalition
“I really wanted to honor one of our coalition members, even though she wasn’t able to make it tonight. She is the Director of one of our licensed centers in Lake County called Bright Start. After struggling with the pandemic, having a busy personal and professional life, she has been such a reliable partner. She is incredibly helpful and supportive in our coalition. I feel very grateful to work with her.”–Hannah Guilford
Daisey Monge Montes, Youth Coalition
Zoila Saucedo, Cooperativa Nueva Unión
“She is someone who has really impressed me. Previously, Zoila had never been part of something like that (a board of directors) since she was always focused on housework and childcare. However, she became the president of the board of directors. She has had incredible personal growth and learning. Even with the difficulties that come with being part of a board of directors! She has always remained involved, even in times when she was the only participant on the board of directors, because no one else wanted to get involved. Thanks to her, the board is now complete and continues to work with our community.” — Eudelia Contreras.
We also want to publicly thank local artist Justin Stewart’s sculpture of the LCBAG logo!
Thank you Lake County community and LCBAG team for making this event possible!
