President’s Message on Postponing Embrace Orange

Dear Embrace Orange Guest,

Due to the Coronavirus and its associated risks for groups, we are postponing our annual Assistance League of Orange Embrace Orange event from Sept. 20, 2020 to Sunday, April 18, 2021.

While we are very disappointed to have to change so many schedules, we know this is the best decision for public health.

The event will continue to be at the Balboa Bay Resort at 4:00 p.m. Although the event will be two months down the road, the wonderful evening will not change. The evening’s activities and menu will be the same; The fantastic live and silent auction items are waiting to be gazed upon; Our friends and family will still be joining us to celebrate our Community Circle Award Recipient, Al Ricci.

Please contact, to confirm and make any necessary changes to your reservation. The new date may open up opportunities for others who weren’t able to attend September 20th which we welcome!

For those of you who have invited family and friends to the event on Sept. 20th, we would love for you to pass on this information. You can forward this email to them and/or contact them directly. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me at

We so appreciate your support as we work together to support those in need in our community. Thank you for your understanding.

Serving with Love,

Norma Hockensmith
President, Assistance League of Orange
