Giving Back Comes Natural at Paradise Valley Estates

Philanthropy is a core belief of many Paradise Valley Estates residents. It isn’t just supporting local nonprofits with leadership or support, it’s an abiding interest in helping others that people bring with them to our Northern California community.

In early 2020, residents of Paradise Valley Estates presented a $3,000 check to the PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) program. The free, year-round golf program is designed to enhance the rehabilitation and assimilation of military veterans back into society. The HOPE program, sponsored by the Professional Golf Association of Northern California/Nevada, provides veterans with free golf instruction from by PGA professionals.

Each year, residents of Paradise Valley Estates also join forces with PGA HOPE for an annual charity golf tournament which benefits Travis Fisher House. The 2020 tournament was canceled due to COVID-19, but the golf committee continued to fundraise for both charities.

Taking care of our own was never more important than in 2020. As staff dealt with keeping residents safe during the pandemic, a raging wildfire burned nearly to the property line necessitating a community-wide evacuation in the late summer. To say that team members of Paradise Valley Estates went above and beyond in 2020 is an understatement.

In appreciation for their extra efforts, residents acknowledged their service with a fall collection drive. The donations from residents totaled more $306,200.00 and were distributed to the employee assistance fund, and as direct COVID-19 bonuses and cards for free holiday turkeys.
