Carousel Ranch's Heart of the West Nearly Sold Out!
Presented by Princess Cruises Community Foundation, Carousel Ranch's annual fundraiser, Heart of the West, is almost at capacity! If you're hoping to attend this August 24 event to support our community's Carousel Ranch kids, don't delay - only a very limited number of tickets were available at time of print. Didn't make the cut? You can still support Ranch miracles on horseback by logging on to make a donation.

Live Auction Preview
The Heart of the West live auction is always a high-energy blast, featuring incredible items and experiences. This year does not disappoint, with selections including "A Wicked Experience in Vegas" complete with house seats, backstage tour and opportunity to meet the cast; private Hawaiian penthouse getaway for four; Kings Staples suite for 12; Dodger dugout experience; one-week stay at a stunning Silver Strand/Oxnard beach estate; Rose Bowl game experience with VIP tailgate party and on-field access; all-inclusive "Tuscan Women Cook" trip to Tuscany; and the crown jewel: a Princess Cruises OceanMedallion™ Vacation - introducing the newest and most advanced wearable device at sea. Simple, effortless and personalized.

It's a Heart of the West Brownie Fest!
Marston's Restaurant, located in the Bridgeport Marketplace in Valencia, is again tempting your philanthropic sweet tooth with their Ardella's Hot Fudge Brownie. Through the month of August, Marston's will donate $2 to Carousel Ranch for every order of this toothsome treat! And don't miss Marston's day-long fundraiser for Carousel Ranch on Tuesday, August 6, when a portion of your purchase will go directly to the Ranch! 253-9910

The Carousel Ranch Story
Carousel Ranch is a community treasure that changes lives. Dedicated to improving the lives of children and young adults with special needs, this nonprofit organization has provided developmental therapeutic and recreational programs for children with special needs through equestrian therapy for more than two decades. Through both their equestrian therapy and vocational training programs, they strive to create an atmosphere where every student can and will succeed - a place where therapy is disguised as fun. Mission Valley Bank has stood beside Carousel Ranch nearly every step of the way since the bank's formation. From assisting with the financing of their property to the launch of their newest program - Ready to Work vocational training program - the support and guidance provided has been instrumental in the nonprofit's growth. This is a transformative place where therapy is disguised as fun, where every child can and will succeed. Mission Valley Bank hopes readers share their passion for the work of Carousel Ranch and join them in supporting the 23rd Annual Heart of the West Dinner, Auction, and Children's Demonstration on Saturday, August 24. To learn more, log on.
