The Beverly Hills Civic Association, founded in 1963, recently celebrated their 58th anniversary at Black Diamond Ranch. As a planned annual event, it is a celebration of the association’s deep-rooted presence in the community and to recognize those individuals and businesses who have contributed to making Beverly Hills a better place to live, work, and play.

The festivities included dinner, music and dancing, and guest speakers, followed by an auction of items donated by community supporters. Faron Mack of Ace Hardware and John Patton of Beverly Hills Waste Management were provided with commemorative plaques for their long-time commitment and support of the community and the association.

Many thanks is also owed to all of the other generous donors who made this such a successful event. Other donors included Pappa Willies, Diamond Nails, Beverly Hills Nails, Comfort Keepers, Plantation, Mike Bays, Newman Strategy, Lou Newman, Michael Belkin, Don and Bonnie Schaefer, Harvey Gerber, and JAM Entertainment, as well as all of the table sponsors and individuals whom attended the affair.

Money raised during this ceremony will be used to support and fund future activities of the Association.
