Please tell us what you thought of our 1st Annual OCCares Benefit Celebration; what you liked most about our program, food & auction and what inspired you the most:
It was an absolute delight to attend the inaugural benefit event of the OC Cares. From the staff, the advisors, the volunteers, the performers...to everyone in the audience, they were all in sync with a common goal to raise funds to support outstanding organizations that are already doing excellent work to make a difference in our community. I wholeheartedly support OC Cares’ mission to provide Unity, Charity, and Compassion to those in need!
— Young Kim, representative from Congressman Ed Royce Office
It was my honor to support OCCares. The work you and your board are doing makes our community more united and stronger. I was amazed at the level of performances you had at the event. It greatly exceeded my expectations. OCCares sets the benchmark for other charity organizations to emulate.
— Councilman Chris Phan
I just want to formally thank you for having Charmaine and Jonathan at the benefit concert last Sunday. From the hotel stay, to the fellowship on Sabbath, to the actual concert, it was a very beautiful and fulfilling experience for all of us. Your team of people are amazingly welcoming and radiate such an enthusiasm for the work they are doing. I was flabbergasted at the scope of your vision and the inspiring perspective you have towards stretching out a helping hand to the community.
— Werner Carrasco (Father of vocalist Charmaine)
