Women United, an affinity group within United Way of Ventura County is hosting its second Annual Luncheon on Thursday, May 17 at the California Lutheran University, Gilbert Sports & Fitness Center. Proceeds from the luncheon will support programs targeting single-mothers in need in Ventura County who are committed to improving their station in life. “We’re excited to host our second annual luncheon, along with co-hosts California Lutheran University and Sage Publishing and our Event Sponsor Procter and Gamble.

The keynote speaker for the luncheon is Dr. Brenda Combs. She is an inspirational, single mother, and an educated speaker that brings her story to life. From rags to riches, from homeless to hero. She once was a homeless crack addict, and criminal, and now she is a highly respected professional speaker that has earned her doctorate. She is a leader in society with an emphasis on education. “We are so fortunate to have Dr. Brenda Combs as our speaker for our second luncheon. She knows firsthand the plight of the single-mother; she is an extraordinary speaker,” said Erin Simqui, Event Chair.
The luncheon will kick-off at 11:00 a.m. with check-in and networking and from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. – sit down luncheon, guest speaker, educational awards presented to our 3 Ventura County Community College single mother students, followed by a questions and answers session.

Earning and maintaining the trust and confidence of donors and stakeholders is critical to nonprofit success.
As nonprofit professionals and executive leaders, we must abide by the highest ethical practices. Chief among these practices include financial transparency, honoring the donor’s intent, following gift acknowledgement and reporting regulations, and accurate, honest communications – to name just a few.
Also imperative, is creating a code of ethics for your organization that informs fundraising practices and board room decisions. Attendees of this two-hour workshop with nonprofit legal expert, Roy Schneider will explore these and other ethical practices inherent to board governance and fundraising.

Why this workshop is important to attend...
It's important to understand and appreciate the ethical obligations staff and board members need to have toward their nonprofit and the public, and to understand the process of designing a Code of Ethics, particularly in the area of fundraising for your organization.
Maintaining high ethical standards will help assure that an organization complies with the legal standards required to be a nonprofit, particularly a charity, and retain donor trust.

Reel Guppy Outdoors founder, Kevin Brannon saw a need for a free youth fishing program in his local community.
Many kids would tell him they wished they had someone to take them fishing too, whenever he and his kids would pile into the car, fishing rods and tackle in tow. He himself had grown up with uncertainty, single parent household, low income, after his father passed away. Then it was foster homes and shelters, a modern-day Dickensian childhood.
With little other opportunity, yet living just a block from Port Hueneme Pier, he would spend hours there, fishing. Required to be ever resourceful, he would recover used fishing line and hooks. With a tin can as his fishing pole, and any leftover bait he could scrounge from the pier’s cleaning tables, he was a modern-day Huck Fin.
By age 9, he had worked his way aboard the local party-boats. As a “pin-head,” he helped paying passengers with their fishing, untangling lines, sacking fish and such.
Out on the boats was a haven of safety and solitude, a place of security and certainty in his otherwise unstable childhood. This time imprinted a passion for fishing and the sea, an ethic valuing helping others.
He carries these values to this day, and they form the heart and soul of the Reel Guppy Outdoors program. Now, some 25 years later, Brannon produces a TV show he started while attending Oxnard College. Reel Anglers Fishing Show California currently televised in California produces the Reel Guppy Outdoor.
Brannon saw it as his purpose, sharing his connection with the ocean and outdoors with others, to foster in others the sense of belonging and purpose he found in fishing.
With the promise of fun and adventure as bait, he fosters a sense of value in learning, self motivation, leadership and success in the young people he takes fishing. As a survivor of uncertain times, he wants to pass on the survival strategies that saved him.
Brannon reinvested the blessings and rewards from his successful show toward taking as many kids as he could fit in his car, fishing. The effort blossomed. With the help of other like-minded folk, also volunteering their time and effort, he has organized over 20 youth fishing events, taking over 1,000 kids fishing.
