SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

CREER Comunidad y Familia, a nonprofit based in San Juan Capistrano that provides food and other services for families in need, will host a fundraiser dinner and concert on Sunday, June 26.
The event will take place at the San Juan Capistrano Community Center, 25925 Camino Del Avion, from 6-10 p.m. Tickets are $75. Neil Diamond tribute band Hot August Night will perform.
The event will be CREER’s first benefit concert since March 2020, which was when the COVID-19 pandemic first disrupted daily life.
CREER has continued to provide a food pantry for the local community every Tuesday, and its summer camp is expected to resume this summer, according to volunteer Jeff Singer.
