In celebration of National Foster Care Month, The Fountains at The Carlotta hosted a Rock and Roll-a-thon fundraising event to raise money for local children in foster care. The event was hosted by Carlotta Cares, a philanthropic group of volunteers and residents of The Fountains at The Carlotta.
Residents, their families and associates of The Fountains rolled around the mile-long driveway at The Fountains by bike and wheelchair, while other volunteers handed out refreshments and cheered for participants. Carlotta Cares set out with a goal to raise $2,500 for the County of Riverside Foster Care Services, and with the community’s help, were thrilled to exceed that goal by raising $2,750.
“We are so grateful for all of our volunteers and participants this year for working hard to exceed our donation goal for these wonderful children coming from very difficult situations,” said Ronn Ellenich, executive director of The Fountains at the Carlotta. “With the money raised, Foster Care Services will purchase gift cards to local department stores for the children, allowing them to shop for their own clothing, and we are so pleased to be a part of that.”
