Roseville Adult Center hosts ‘Fiesta’ fundraiser

Proceeds will pay for technology upgrades at the center
-A +A

Join the staff and clients of the Roseville Adult Center for the second annual La Fiesta Taquiera fundraiser Friday, Feb. 24.

The free event features $1 tacos, rice and beans, raffle prizes, beer and margaritas for sale, and a celebratory atmosphere to benefit the nonprofit organization that serves adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Placer County and the greater Sacramento region.

Proceeds from last year’s event went toward building the center’s new greenhouse. This year, funds will pay for technology upgrades in their classrooms.

Roseville Adult Center Community Outreach Coordinator Aaron Davis said budget cuts are continuing to put a strain on programs for individuals with disabilities, so fundraisers have become critical.

“Our goal as an organization is to keep these reductions away from matters that directly affect the people we serve,” Davis said. “Fundraising events like this one are an important step in meeting that goal, and maintaining the high standard of service that our clients and families have come to rely upon.”

The center serves 75 young to elder adults, and provides guidance on daily living practices, health and physical fitness, vocational training, cognitive growth and leisure activities.

Clients learn life and job skills, communication, appropriate social behavior, and receive encouragement and support to pursue their goals, according to the center’s website.

The center is funded by Alta California Regional Center and licensed by the state of California.
