Save The Taste of Ladera Event 2011: We Need Your Help!

The Taste of Ladera Event, a community hallmark for the past seven years, needs your help! LARMAC and LARCS - the two organizations charged with approving community events - have failed to approve the 2011 Taste of Ladera Event.

As a result we are requesting you to make every effort to attend and encourage others to attend the upcoming homeowner's meeting on Wednesday, December 8th at 6PM at the Avendale Clubhouse in Ladera Ranch to voice your support for Taste.  We want LARMAC to change their position and approve Taste of Ladera for 2011.

The Taste of Ladera Event is Ladera Ranch's largest fundraiser that supports youth programs, local schools, and over 20 nonprofits made possible by generous donors, volunteers, and business relationships. Through the years it has evolved into South Orange County's biggest charitable event with well over 20,000 attendees per year while raising more than $300,000 dollars.

To learn why LARMAC and LARCS are killing off The Taste of Ladera Event follow the links to the interview with Carol McCormick, the LARCS' President, as well as the recently published Ladera Times Story and the attached article, 'Taste of Ladera - What's At Stake'.

BTW, Town Green is not an option because we outgrew it our first year.
Also, please come to the LARMAC Board Meeting to support Taste of Ladera.

  1. Michelle it was only time before the bad people of Ladera Ranch got this event killed. Ah, I remember the good old days were everyone liked each other. That would have been 2001 to 2007

  2. Dennis- Didn't you get fired from Ladera because you were caught playing god by making people out to be villains and sabotaging them? Ah the good old days, when you kept an enemies list and told Ladera staff to make life hell for people that did not kiss your ring. You sir were the cause of people not liking each other from 2001 to 2007. You just deny it because the liking and not liking was of your behind the scenes creation.
