Dine on Pine event to raise funds, awareness for education programs

The Conservation Corps of Long Beach (CCLB) will conduct its 19th annual Dine on Pine event on Monday, July 18 beginning at 5:15pm. The purpose of the event is to raise money for scholarships for Corps members and the CCLB’s education program and to educate the community about the services that the organization provides.
Dine on Pine is a progressive dinner on Pine Avenue in downtown Long Beach. The evening begins at The Madison, with groups of participants rotating between The Madison, George’s Greek Café, and L’Opera. The event culminates with dessert and coffee, as well as a presentation and opportunity drawings, at The Madison.
The annual singular recognition given by the CCLB for outstanding service on an area or by region-wide basis is celebrated at Dine on Pine. This year, Theresa Marino, bureau manager for the City of Long Beach Health and Human Services Department, will be honored with the Founder’s Award.
“Dine on Pine gives us the opportunity to showcase the CCLB and provide information on the valuable resource that we are to the greater Long Beach community,” said Mike Bassett, executive director/CEO of the CCLB. “The guests are able to enjoy a delightful four-course meal, network with peers, have an exceptional time, all while supporting the young adults, the work we do and helping to provide scholarship and education funds to well-deserved youth.”
The Conservation Corps of Long Beach, now in its 24th year, aims to raise self-esteem, develop basic work skills, promote teamwork, and enhance work ethic and education for the greater Long Beach area at-risk youth through a combination of work, conservation and education programs. The program is consistently working on new projects and sites to challenge the youth.
