Tom Nolan Orchestra to Help Celebrate LARC Ranch's 50th
Santa Clarita, CA (Friday, August 7, 2009) — In an attempt to keep their doors open, funds raised at LARC Ranch’s annual fundaiser will be applied directly toward their operations budget.
    Scheduled for Sunday, September 13, at LARC Ranch, the event will feature the smooth sounds of the Tom Nolan Orchestra, regulars at Rusty’s on the Santa Monica Pier, where they have been in residence for 15 years.
    The cost of the event is $125 per adult, $50 for children ages 5-13, or a package price of $325 per family, including a buffet lunch. Lunch and refreshments begin at 1:00 p.m. and the concert is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
    Nestled in the countryside of the Santa Clarita Valley, are the 65 acres of LARC Ranch, which is celebrating its 50th year. LARC Ranch is dedicated to helping developmentally disabled adults thrive through a variety of programs, providing residential and day programs to over 105 residents and day programs services to both its residents and to day clients that live at home. LARC provides an optimum lifestyle for its residents within an exceptional home-style environment and places importance on recreation and socialization.
    Due to the current California budget crises, all proceeds will go directly toward operations as opposed to designated upgrades. LARC has taken a 3% permanent funding cut, which amounts to $100,000 currently, with a probable funding cut of 7.1% come September. Currently, $100 million has been cut from the State budget, directly affecting the Department of Developmental Services, which in turn funds the North L.A. County Regional Center, which provides funding for LARC Ranch and other similar programs.
    There is also $234 million that still needs to be cut, but no one knows where and when that will
    happen. In an effort to keep jobs and benefits in tact, LARC has cut back hours in both residential and day programs, as well as a variety of items from their regular budget.
    Today, the LARC Ranch Villa Community, Ruth and Allen Ziegler campus is a self-contained community of 13 individual villas. Additional facilities include the ADC day program, an auditorium, a gymnasium, an indoor swimming pool, a sports park with a picnic area and a newly renovated pavilion and amphitheater for evening movie viewing and summertime musical entertainment. LARC maintains a community-based work program in Canyon Country and a HUD home in the community for higher functioning individuals.
    It is LARC Ranch’s mission to serve this very special population with dignity and respect and see that all special individuals are afforded the equality of services entitled to them through the Lanterman Acts.
