A hundred veterans in Southern California are better equipped to handle daily financial matters thanks to an ongoing effort involving several organizations.
Working Wardrobes VetNet, a national nonprofit serving the educational and employment readiness needs of military veterans, and the Wells Fargo team in Orange County worked together Aug. 30 on an event featuring learning and inspiration in Laguna Beach.
The local veterans and their guests started the evening with a special financial literacy class and dinner. Then, an additional 200 veterans and other invitees enjoyed a live production of “The Pursuit of Happiness,” this year’s “Pageant of the Masters” performance — depicting classical and contemporary works of art using performers made to look like the originals.
Each of the invitees had completed Working Wardrobes VetNet’s workforce readiness program or had worked with other veterans groups.
