Mesa Leadership Class of 2024 is announcing a fundraiser for a transformative project aimed at rejuvenating the outdoor patio area at Oakwood Creative Care in Mesa, a nonprofit facility committed to providing support and daytime care for older adults facing cognitive or physical challenges, particularly those dealing with neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and stroke.
Event organizers say the primary objective of the project is to establish a serene and welcoming outdoor space where residents can enjoy the outdoors, engage in social activities, and find solace in nature. Recognizing the positive impact of well-designed outdoor spaces on mental well-being, the class aims to create an environment that fosters joy and comfort for individuals grappling with cognitive or physical challenges.
To finance this initiative, Mesa Leadership Class of 2024 will host a Casino Night on Friday, Jan. 26, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Benedictine University, 225 E. Main St. in Mesa.
The event aims to raise funds through sponsorships and generous donations from businesses and individuals. All contributions are tax-deductible and will directly contribute to the realization of this meaningful project, according to organizers.

The Mesa Leadership Training & Development Program was inaugurated in 1981 with the belief that every community has potential leaders who are seeking the opportunity to serve and who need the exposure to the information, organizations and leaders to make that service possible. The nine-month program includes a class project that benefits a local community organization.
The program is a 501c3 organization and is sponsored by the Mesa Chamber of Commerce. It is administered by volunteers who serve as board members, program and curriculum development committees and community liaisons.
