Casa Colina celebrates 75 years with gala
Hosted by Joan Lunden, journalist, author and television personality, Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation will celebrate its 75th anniversary on Saturday, June 1 with a black-tie-optional gala to be held at the Sheraton Fairplex Convention Center, 601 W. McKinley Ave., Pomona.
For 75 years, the nonprofit Casa Colina has helped more than 210,000 people reclaim physical and cognitive abilities by providing advanced rehabilitation services after an injury or illness.
Casa Colina continues to expand its facilities and services with the opening of a 24,000 square-foot medical office building in March 2013. Construction will also begin this year on a medical-surgical bed hospital that will include 31 beds, 3 operating rooms, one procedure room and 6 intensive care beds.
In addition to the anniversary gala on June 1, the community is also invited to attend a monthly lunchtime social to learn more about Casa Colina’s history and future plans, hear stories from former patients, meet staff members and receive a free lunch. Tours of the 20-acre campus will also be offered.
The lunchtime social is held on the second Wednesday of every month through October 13 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Casa Colina’s Tamkin Education Center, Building 1D. Space is limited and reservations are required. For information and to RSVP, call Casa Colina at 596-7733 ext. 2232 or email agarbayo@ casacolina.org.
