ARIS supports Local Veterans, Active Duty, & First Responders
Applied Resource Insurance Solutions hosts a large event benefitting Operation Gratitude, and our local heroes.
Valencia, CA, May 23, 2017: May 23rd marks the date of the Charity Wine Tasting Event benefitting Operation Gratitude, an event that began with a group of Santa Clarita business executives who come together every quarter and host local events catering to the Santa Clarita businesses. Normally, the events are open to about 60-80 Santa Clarita businesses, where owners and executives attend to network, and all proceeds benefit a local non-profit. The event coming in May will benefit Operation Gratitude, a non-profit that sends care packages overseas to our deployed troops and first responders, as well as care packages to our veterans at home.
“When people started hearing about this event, it just exploded into our community. It’s very humbling to see how many people in our community support our military.” Stated Maggie-Mae Laufman, the lead organizer of the event, and Marketing Director for Applied Resource Insurance Solutions. “There was a giant wave of support from local businesses in donations of silent auction items, veterans, active-duty, and even politicians!”
Assemblyman Dante Acosta, along with the office of Congressman Steve Knight, will be present and presenting awards to our local heroes. “To see a community bond over this type of an event, it gives you chills. It’s something that we never thought we would see, but it’s a beautiful thing.” Stated President of Applied Resource Insurance Solutions, Bryan Hummitzsch.
The event is set for Tuesday, May 23rd, at the beautiful venue of TPC Valencia on their outdoor patios. The wine was donated from local wineries, a local photobooth was donated, as well as a local DJ offered his services for free. The United States Navy Color Guard will be present, along with the best of Santa Clarita businesses.
Maggie-Mae Laufman stated, “I am excited for this event, and I believe it will be our biggest event yet. And I am so happy that it is benefitting a non-profit dear to my heart. We welcome all businesses here in Santa Clarita to come out and support this beautiful cause.”
