Pacificans Care annual Speakeasy Night, Friday, November 4, 2016

"On Friday, November 4, 7-11 PM, the Pacifica Community Center will again transform into a lively "speakeasy" as 200 Pacificans join in the annual fundraising event sponsored by Pacificans Care.  

The evening will feature great food, desserts, a "Speakeasy Special" cocktail reminiscent of the rum runner days of the 20's, the famous Truffle Chocolate Bar that will give away great prizes to all who participate, a silent auction with trips, mountain cabin getaways, gift certificates and fabulous gift baskets, and much more "roaring" fun!

The real winners of the event will be Pacifica's social service agencies  which benefit from the event including the Pacifica Senior Center, Pacifica Child Care Services, Pacifica Resource Center, and the Pacifica Youth Service Bureau, the core community agencies supported by Pacificans Care.
