Villa Esperanza Services Celebrates Launch of Capital Campaign

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week 21 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Local philanthropic leaders, including Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, celebrated the launch of Villa Esperanza Services’ Capital Campaign. The mid-day celebration with more than 50 guests in attendance was held at a private club and was sponsored by Wells Fargo. “For the past 21 years Wells Fargo executives have served on Villa Esperanza Services’ board of directors. Since 1993 devoted Wells Fargo team members such as current director of the board Joe DeFur and former board member Rich Byrd have lead the charge in bringing hope to families in Southern California,” said Jonathan Weedman, head of the Wells Fargo Foundation in Los Angeles.“Due to the urgent need in our community, and as a result of the passion and confidence we have in the mission of Villa Esperanza Services, Wells Fargo has committed to this first phase of the Capital Campaign with a gift of one million dollars,” said Lisa Stevens, Wells Fargo Pacific Midwest Bank Executive. Stevens also recognized The Ayrshire Foundation for leading the way with the first one million dollar gift to the campaign.Following Wells Fargo’s opening remarks guests heard from Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, Villa Esperanza Services CEO, Kelly White, and Villa Esperanza Services board member and campaign co-chair Jim McDermott, but it was, board member and father, Jay Henneberry, whose personal family story emotionally moved all those in attendance.“To really understand the impact of Villa Esperanza Services I want to share with you what my son Jamie was like before he came to Villa for his education. Jamie was born with a rare genetic disorder, and at the time of his birth the doctor, in words I’ll never forget, told us that his condition was quote ‘incompatible with human life and we could take him home but he would be dead within a few months.’” Henneberry went on to say, “Villa Esperanza welcomed us when no one else would. They did a phenomenal job with our son, well beyond my expectations and they continue to open their arms to us. And for that I will always be hugely, hugely grateful.”Hope Moves Forward is the name of the Villa Esperanza Capital Campaign. The organization’s namesake means “House of Hope” and Phase I of the master plan is to build a new school and purchase and renovate a new permanent home for the adult day program, entitled Dimensions. The new Villa Esperanza Services School will include seven classrooms, designed for 12 students, each 71 percent larger than the current classroom size, allowing for an increase in school enrollment by 41 percent; Dimensions Adult Day Program also forecasts growth of 36 percent. Currently the school can only accommodate five children in wheelchairs, but once complete it will be able to accommodate as many as needed in the new facility, making the school more accessible and inviting. All buildings will be energy efficient, built to LEED-certified standards as well as full American Disability Act standards.Villa Esperanza Services has secured 45 percent of the nine million dollar Phase I goal and plans to break ground in July 2015. Phase II, another nine million dollar goal will help complete the renovation, including new occupational and physical therapy facilities and administrative offices, will begin shortly thereafter. When both phases are completed, the main campus will have grown 37 percent to 41,000 square feet.“We are extremely grateful to the Ayrshire Foundation, Wells Fargo, Pasadena Community Foundation, board members, and philanthropic leaders from the community for their generous gifts. We rely on the community to support our general operating and to have them step forward with gifts for capital is truly amazing,” shares Villa CEO Kelly White. “Villa is fortunate to have campaign co-chairs, Cynthia Kurtz and Jim McDermott and many campaign volunteers assisting with this project.”The tremendous showing from the community and Wells Fargo executives was heartwarming and exemplifies the commitment Wells Fargo has to Villa Esperanza Services. Wells Fargo executives in attendance at the launch event included Rich Byrd, Regional Managing Director Abbot Downing; Joe DeFur, Senior Managing Director for California; David DiCristofaro, Greater Los Angeles president; Steve Mann, regional director of Wells Fargo’s Private Bank; Tim Sloan, CFO; John Sotoodeh, LA/OC president; and Lisa Stevens, Pacific Midwest Bank executive.Wells Fargo, recently named the nation’s top corporate philanthropist, acknowledged that the decision to fund the capital campaign was due to the urgent need and the long-standing relationship between Wells Fargo and Villa Esperanza Services. The donation to Villa Esperanza Services is from the national Wells Fargo Foundation budget and will not affect Wells Fargo’s annual giving to other local nonprofits.About Villa Esperanza ServicesVilla Esperanza Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the care and education of children, adults and seniors with developmental, intellectual and other disabilities.

Summer spotlight performance tonight

first_img Sponsored Content “In the group, we have seven Troy University theater majors who are using this opportunity for observation and to utilize their teaching skills – and to have some fun,” Moree said. “All of the students will benefit from the direction of Roy Hudson, who was the teacher of the year at Shades Valley High School where he developed the theater academy.”Hudson is now a member of the faculty of the Troy University Department of Theater and Dance.Renfrow, who will be a freshman at Auburn University in the fall, said the opportunity to work with Hudson has provided her with one more source before heading to The Plains.Her schoolmate and friend, Kaitlyn Conway, agreed that working with Hudson has given her a different perspective on theater.“This has been an opportunity to grow,” she said. “I find that sometimes I’m thinking too hard, and I need to stop and take the advice that is offered to me. Savannah and I have only worked with one director. Here at camp, we’ve learned to trust a director that we didn’t know. It’s been a great experience.”For Bryan Benfield of Huntsville, the camp has been an opportunity to improve what he is best at – “dancing,” as well as what he is “bad” at –“singing and dancing.”“Working with Roy Hudson is a chance to work with someone who understands me at my level and pushes me beyond my limits,” Benfield said.“And he has done that. He’s a lot of fun and jokes with us but this camp has been a great learning experience – and very intensive.”Tonight’s Summer Spotlight Showcase will be the culmination of a week of intensive theater training and Moree said it will be a proud performance by a group of very fine young theater students.

Police investigating suspected killer’s claims of up to seven murders

first_imgKABC(LOS ANGELES) — Police are in the process of unraveling the extent of a potential serial killer’s carnage, after he made claims about murders that have yet to be confirmed by investigators.Danueal Drayton was arrested last week in Los Angeles and is set to be extradited to New York in connection with the murder of one woman and the rape of another – both of whom police officials said he met through online dating apps.Drayton had been wanted for the murder of a nurse in Queens who was found dead in her home a few weeks ago, after she met Drayton on the dating app Tinder, New York Police Department officials said.Now, police sources tell ABC News that Drayton is claiming he was involved in three murders in New York and as many as seven murders in total nationwide – though no evidence has emerged to validate Drayton’s additional claims.So far, New York police have only connected Drayton to the Queens murder of the nurse, Samantha Stewart, and a separate rape in Brooklyn.He was arrested in Hollywood, California last week after Los Angeles police said he strangled and sexually assaulted a 28-year old woman he had also met on a dating site.While the prospect of Drayton, 27, being involved in additional crimes has not been ruled out, New York police sources said that no evidence has yet emerged to corroborate his other claims.“He is saying crazy things,” one police official said.While Drayton claims he strangled a man in the Bronx, for instance, New York police sources said there are no unsolved murders in that area that fit his description. So detectives are checking for similar cases across the border in Westchester County, New York.New York investigators now have a wide-ranging investigation underway into Drayton that involves the NYPD’s homicide and sex crimes units as well as digital experts who are probing Drayton’s online activity, including dating websites he may have visited.Last week, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said that while investigating the Stewart murder, police were able to connect Drayton to a separate rape case in Brooklyn several weeks earlier.The “common denominator in these cases — one being a murder and one being a rape — is dating websites,” Shea said at the time. “This individual is known to us and believed by us to be using dating websites to meet women and victimize women.”Drayton was apprehended in North Hollywood on July 24.There, he allegedly strangled and sexually assaulted a 28-year-old woman and refused to let her leave after a date, according to officials in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.When Drayton was taken into custody in Los Angeles, he was charged with attempted murder, forcible rape, sexual penetration by foreign object and false imprisonment, according to prosecutors.The case was filed July 26. Bail was set at $1.25 million, prosecutors said. It was not immediately clear whether Drayton had retained or been assigned a defense attorney.Like some other dating websites and apps, Tinder offers dating safety tips to its users.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
