Tickets for the event are $75 for Front Row and $50 for Center Row, with discounts for larger parties. Those interested in purchasing tickets can call (916) 806-4852. A cap of 200 guests has been set. Proceeds will go to support the center’s “Safe Room” for all military veterans.
The Veterans Community Center was founded by the late Jim Rounsavell, along with his wife Jeanne who currently serves as the center’s president. The center is located in the old 1862 Sylvan School house at 6921 Sylvan Rd. and was founded to provide a place for veterans to congregate, access services, have a cup of coffee, and enjoy various events and activities.
The center held it’s first Luau fundraiser in 2019, but discontinued the event for the next two years due to the pandemic.
