Turnkey Events

Are you a local business that wants to know how you can give back to the neediest in our community? Pacific Clinics is always looking for business partners to help raise money and awareness for the children and families we serve. In the past, businesses of all sizes have helped by:

  • Designating one day as “Pacific Clinics” day, and donating a percentage of the sales to Pacific Clinics.
  • Holding an open house at the store to help raise awareness or donations for Pacific Clinics.
  • Organizing a fundraising event such as a golf or bowling tournament, or walk / swim-a-thon, or a charity luncheon / fashion show.

Pacific Clinics’ fundraising department can help you launch, plan and support your fundraising efforts. We are willing to come to your event, speak about Pacific Clinics’ programs, and provide literature and brochures. Contact Darren DeMonsi at (408) 364-4058 or
