On December 21, 2022, the City of Clearlake received a $10,000 donation from the Lake County Wine Alliance to support the Clearlake Youth Center remodel project.
Since taking over the Clearlake Youth Center in October 2022, City staff have been working on an extensive remodel, including replacing kitchen equipment and flooring, painting, and all-new activity equipment.
Once the Clearlake Youth Center remodel is completed, the creation of such programs as summer, day camps, and youth classes will be held at this facility. The Clearlake Youth Center will also be available for youth event rentals. All proceeds from events such as Breakfast with Santa, Bunny Brunch, Comedy Show Fundraiser, and Movies in the Park go directly to creating and maintaining the youth programs.
City Manager Flora stated,” The City is honored to receive these funds from the Lake County Wine Alliance, and we are extremely grateful for the assistance in getting this building and our youth programs up and running again. Our kids need it. A special thanks to Marie Beery for thinking of us and all her support for community programs.”
The check was delivered to City’s Recreation and Events Coordinator Tina Viramontes at the Saw Shop on Thursday, January 12, 2023. Weston Seifert, owner of the Saw Shop, is the Lake County Restaurant Chairperson, and the Saw Shop catered the dinner for the 2022 Wine Auction.
