The Loan Ladies are partnering with the Discovery Bay Lions Club to sponsor a series of upcoming summer events that will benefit community needs and organizations.
The Summer Jam concert, happening June 1 at the Discovery Bay Community Center, is the first of two and a free event open to the public.
The Loan Ladies are a Brentwood-based team of loan officers that has been together for more than 17 years and has strong ties to East County, with each team member living in the area for more than 30 years.
“I chose to join the Discovery Bay Lions Club because their mission of helping the local community, children and the visually impaired, is very close to my heart,” said The Loan Ladies co-founder Kathy Zickenberg. “Having raised two children in the area and assisted my mother who suffered from macular degeneration, I know firsthand how valuable the Lions Club’s aid is to local families. The Loan Ladies are honored to support these causes and provide a VIP sponsorship towards their philanthropic events this summer.”
“We are extremely thankful for groups like The Loan Ladies for stepping up and helping our mission come true,” said Lions Club President Bryon Gutow. “The Discovery Bay Lions Club relies on the generous contributions of our sponsors in order to assist all the groups we support. With their help, we gave close to $75,000 last year to local needs such as schools, animal rescue, boy scouts and special needs children, just to name a few.”
The first of two Summer Jam concerts for 2019 takes place from 5 to 10 p.m. on June 1 at the Discovery Bay Community Center, located at 1601 Discovery Bay Blvd. The event will feature live music by local bands including the Blue Collar Men. Food trucks, wine tasting, beer and margarita booths, and dozens of exciting vendors will also be available.
