New Costa Mesa Business to Help Local Organizations


We’re excited about Fundraiser Mortgage and you should be too. Fundraiser Mortgage is a local mortgage company that will donate back to the organizations and charities of your choice. Now more than ever Costa Mesa organizations need funding and this is the perfect opportunity to get a great deal on a loan and let the loan company donate money to the charity or cause of your choice. Contact Fundraiser Mortgage for details.


Cans For Kids (And Plastic Bottles Too!)


We’re making it a priority to go GREEN & going GREEN can help bring in GREEN for our schools! Join us as we team up with OCC to help Adams Elementary School & Sonora Elementary School in the CANS FOR KIDS RALLY June 7-11, 2010. Students should bring in aluminum cans and plastic bottles and drop them in marked recycling bins at the schools. All of the money from this recycling effort will be given to the schools. The rally will wrap up at the Costa Mesa Community Picnic on June 12. Let’s hope this is a big success so we can expand it to more schools throughout Costa Mesa next school year. Start saving your cans (and plastic bottles) now!

Costa Mesa Community Picnic

Many kudos to Mike Brumbaugh for introducing the 1st Annual Costa Mesa Community Picnic to Costa Mesa. What better way to start off the summer! Mike is President of the Halecrest & Hall of Fame Community Association and he meets with other neighborhood leaders to discuss ways to bring the city together. They thought a city-wide picnic would be a fun, easy way for the whole town to get together and have a great day. Each neighborhood will have a presence at the event and provide games and entertainment so everyone is welcome. The very first picnic will take place at Halecrest Park. Each year the picnic will be hosted in a different neighborhood park. Bring your own food and get ready for some major fun – there will be a bounce house, a variety of games & art projects suitable for all ages, a cookie decorating station, and much more!


WHEN: Saturday, June 12, 2010 from 12-4pm
