Get ready for desserts galore at Step Up Ventura’s Decadent Dessert Harvest Fundraiser to be held on Saturday, November 9, 2019 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Poinsettia Pavilion, 3451 Foothill.

Ticket prices start at $25 per person. Platinum Event Sponsors include James and Gunilla DeArkland, Silver Development & Associates, Charlotte & Piewacket, and Concours Motors, who are helping to underwrite the festivities. Businesses interested in sponsor opportunities or donations should contact Event Coordinator Jennifer Dawes at [email protected] or (805) 665-3385.

Since 2016, Step Up Ventura, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has worked tirelessly to change the lives of homeless children by providing therapeutic services and access to childcare and preschool to help them connect, heal, and learn. The group also helps homeless families become self-sufficient by working to break the cycle of homelessness where it begins…. in early childhood.
