Hello everyone,

A message from Elizabeth Brown, SacVCOA Planning Committee:

Please join the Sacramento Chapter of the VCOA for our Holiday Party and Toy Drive at Ginger's Restaurant in Roseville, CA on Thursday, December 19th at 7:30pm.

This is not an ambitious event, just an opportunity for club members to get together and share some holiday cheer while sharing a meal and supporting the UC Davis Medical Center Children's Hospital by bringing one unwrapped toy per person/family attending the holiday party to support their Child Life and Creative Art Therapy Programs!

About the Restaurant: Gingerís is a family-owned/operated classic American-style restaurant with a casual tropical/Hawaiian vibe featuring Certified Angus Beef menu selections and have won five Style Magazine Readerís Choice Awards. They also have free entertainment and on Thursday, will feature guitar music.
For those of you not quite done with your holiday shopping, the restaurant is near a number of Roseville landmark shopping destinations such as the Fountains, Westfield Galleria, and the Automall.

Hi Everyone,

The Sac Volvo Club Holiday Party has been canceled.

If you have already purchased an item for the UC Davis Child Life and Creative Art Therapy Programs, you can drop it off during their drive-up, drop-off hours as noted in their press release:

If this has caused you any inconvenience, I apologize.


In the meantime, we hope you and your family have a wonderful Holiday Season and wish to thank you for your support of the Sac Volvo Club!

We look forward to another great year in 2014!

Take care,
