Join The Casa Pacifica Angels

Whether joining a committee and planning events, volunteering the day of the event or participating through your Angel membership fee, each Angel has a heart made of gold, the attitude of a saint, and the strong desire to make a difference!

If we've just described you, consider becoming an Angel today! Planning for the fundraising events and children's parties begins months in advance and Angel members are invited to join one or more of the event planning committees or sub-committees. We realize not everyone can give their time to volunteer for these activities, but just joining the Angels does a lot for the kids of Casa Pacifica as your membership fee contributes to funding the children’s parties!

Our Mission Statement

Casa Pacifica Angels LogoTo foster interest and community involvement in Casa Pacifica, engage in fundraising activities, solicit in-kind gifts for programs, and volunteer hours for programs.

Casa Pacifica Angels Parties

When the campus was completed in 1994 and children began to live in the residential treatment center cottages, the Angels added planning and decorating four children's parties each year to their volunteer efforts:

Casa Pacifica Annual Prom
Held each May at the end of the school year, the Prom is a special event for all the kids of Casa Pacifica – and includes a fantastic sit-down dinner, followed by a wonderful evening of dancing to the irresistible beats of a D.J. The kids dress up to the nines for the fabulous party and are treated to hair cuts, manicures, and limousine rides courtesy of kind professionals from the community.

Annual End-of-Summer Party
The End of Summer party allows the Casa Pacifica children and staff to enjoy a great day playing, playing lawn games, and competing in the summer favorite picnic games – tug of war, egg toss, sack race, etc and enjoying a BBQ outside!. It’s a really special afternoon that promises to last as a favored childhood memory for our youth’s lifetimes.

Casa Pacifica Annual Halloween Party
Held in Casa Pacifica’s hauntingly transformed gymnasium, each year the Angels collaborate with the Amigos to create a fun evening for the kids we serve! The kids are able to enjoy trick-or-treating at the various carnival-style booths sponsored by the different agency programs followed by a costume contest and lots of dancing! It’s a night the children so enjoy and look forward to all year long. For additional information contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Annual Children’s Holiday Party
A special and memorable evening for Casa Pacifica’s children, the Angel’s Children’s Events co-chairs and their team always come up with a wonderful theme that sets the tone for a magical evening that includes a special sit-down dinner (served by volunteers from the community), performances by the Casa Pacifica Choir and special guests, and the highly-anticipated visit from Santa Claus, who hands out a gift to each individual child. The Christmas Party is a heartwarming evening that shouldn’t be missed! For additional information contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

In addition to the above mentioned events and parties, the Angels also:

Volunteer at the Children’s Holiday Boutique
This annual event offers Casa Pacifica’s children the opportunity to "shop" for holiday gifts (which have all been donated) for important people in their lives – family members, social workers, care staff, and friends. The Angels are on hand to wrap each gift in splendor and with love, so each child has something special to hand to their loved-one.

Casa Pacifica Angels Fundraisers

From the inception of the Angels Auxiliary in the late 1980s as the entity focused on fundraising much of the money necessary to bring Casa Pacifica to reality (the first Angels Ball was held long before Casa Pacifica was ever built), the Angels Auxiliary has continued over the years in its essential fundraising role, organizing, hosting Casa Pacifica's major fundraising events: Wine & Food Festival, and Spotlight on Fashion Show.

Wine, Food & Brew Festival
Voted the “Best Charity Event of Ventura County” and "Best Food & Drink Festival of Ventura County" for several years in a row, the Wine, Food & Brew Festival has grown into a premier, must-attend event. The Festival offers delicious samples from more than 150 exhibitors, including wineries, breweries, restaurants, bakeries, caterers, and food specialty shoppes – along with continuous entertainment throughout the day, and a terrific online silent auction.

Spotlight on Style Fashion Show
A wonderful afternoon of delicious food and high-style fashion, the Spotlight on Style Fashion Show also offers excellent boutique shopping from unique, high-quality clothing, accessories, and home goods vendors. Learn more about the Spotlight on Style Fashion Show

Top Chef Yummie Dinner
At the Festival’s sister event, Ventura County’s top chefs come together to prepare a seven-course dining and wine-pairing experience. Help bring this evening to life by helping with soliciting auction donations, tablescape designs, soliciting sponsors, and various administrative tasks.
