Healthy Valley Foundation makes a difference


HEMET – The Healthy Valley Foundation will hold a Mother’s Day Weekend fundraiser May 10, hosted by The Country Club at Soboba Springs. The fundraising event will feature a silent auction and a live auction with auctioneer Mark Coulter. Entertainment will be provided by David Avila and his accompanying guitarist.

“As a successor charity to the Hemet Hospital Foundation, Healthy Valley Foundation is carrying on the important work of the Hemet Hospital Foundation and is dedicated to improving access to medical care, education and services in our community,” foundation spokesman Howard Rosenthal said. “We will be providing opportunities for the community to partner with us in our work of promoting a Healthy Valley through the support of events such as this.”

In its fifth year, The Healthy Valley Foundation is getting involved in critical projects on behalf of the Hemet-San Jacinto Valley.

“Projects that make a difference to the beautiful valley where we live and work,” Rosenthal said.

San Jacinto College, scholarships for health professional studies, Hemet hospice volunteers, Exceed, Eek Fitness, Boy Scouts of America Three Peaks Division, V.I.P. Tots, Fingerprints Kids Museum, fitness center at San Jacinto High School, BARR – Building Assets, Reducing Risks – Program at Hemet Union School District and fitness and exercise trails at Valley-Wide Bill Grey Park.
