CASA of Ventura County Informational Presentation
Location: Furnished upon Registration
Contact tel.: 805-389-3120
Contact: Bernadette Cardenas
Are you ready to stand up for a child who needs you? CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CASA volunteers change that. Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time—and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.

To enroll in our informational session, call 805.389.3120, Fax to 805.389.3451 ATTN: Bernadette Cardenas, or Email registration to bernadette@casaofventuracounty.org

Santa Paula Concert Series
The Santa Paula Concert Series has been revived and will have its second concert of the new series, An evening with Singer/Songwriter Wendy Sobel, on Saturday, August 1st at 8:00 PM at the historic Universalist Unitarian Church, a Ventura County landmark, located at 740 East Main Street, Santa Paula. Parking is on the street or behind the church.

Wendy Sobel is that rare performer who approaches singing with sensitivity to lyrics that turns the song into a short story. Her vocals are velvet smooth and her guitar playing is nothing short of inspired. She writes songs that speak to the human emotion in a way we can all hear. Both with bands and as a solo artist, Wendy has performed all over the Northeast. She has shared the stage with acts such as: Kathy Mattea, Dan Fogelberg, The Four Tops, Lily Tomlin, Karla Bonoff, Martha Reeves, Livingston Taylor and Dave Mason, just to name a few. She is also the guitarist in Rev. Maddie Sifantus’ longtime band, TVS (The Vocal Section) and we can count on Maddie sitting in on vocals for some songs.

Included in her credits are a vast number of radio and television interviews and appearances both in the United States and England. Seeing Wendy Sobel in a performance is truly an unforgettable experience. Her scorching guitar riffs, riveting vocals and compelling songwriting is nothing short of electric.

The Universalist Unitarian Church of Santa Paula has been home to a number of musical events throughout its 126 year history. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the historic building and the programs of the church. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by calling 805-525-4647, at a table on Cruise Night in front of the church or at the door on the night of the concert.
