Busy Summer | Around About North County

Don’t miss out on the last two Tuesdays in the Park, Atascadero Chamber sponsored barbecues as summer winds down.

The next is Tuesday, July 30 hosted by P.E.O. (Philanthropic Educational Organization) and CALL (Creative Alternative for Learning & Living).

Proceeds from the BBQ will support Atascadero’s Chapter P.E.O.’s mission “to celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans and stewardship of Cottey College; and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.”

Many local women have benefited from one of the “mission goals” mentioned above. The P.E.O. sisterhood is a nonprofit organization that has helped more than 109,000 women pursue educational goals by providing over $344 million in educational assistance, making a difference in women’s lives through six philanthropies and a foundation.

The Tuesday in the Park tickets are available at the Atascadero Chamber located at 6907 El Camino Real, Ste. A, Atascadero, and are also available at the barbecue. 

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, July 30 for the P.E.O. and CALL barbeque and Aug. 6 for Quota International of Atascadero and the Community Church of Atascadero.

The barbecues are located at Atascadero Lake Park, 9100 Morro Rd., Atascadero.

Barbecue dinners are prepared by Atascadero Elks Lodge No. 2733 and are served by nonprofits from 5 to 7 p.m. The Atascadero Community Band plays from 7 to 8 p.m. at the lakeside Bandstand!

For more information, contact the Chamber at 805-466-2044.

Come out and enjoy our beautiful park and our beautiful weather, while eating a delicious dinner supporting our local nonprofits.

Speaking of local nonprofits, this next nonprofit covers the whole county, so save the date of Thursday, Sept. 27, 12 p.m., at the Alex Madonna Center in San Luis Obispo, for the Women’s Legacy Fund Annual Luncheon. 

The Women's Legacy Fund is a fund for The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County. Proceeds from the luncheon are added to the permanent endowment that had grown to more than $1.5 million since its inception in 2003. More than $400,000 has been awarded in grants to local nonprofit programs that benefit women and girls in our community.

This is the only event on the Central Coast that brings 700 of the most influential and passionate women and men in San Luis Obispo County together in one location, sharing the mission of the Women’s Legacy Fund.

Tickets are available online at WLFSLO2019.BPT.ME.
