Wildomar Night at the Diamond catches funds


Last updated 8/15/2006 at Noon

Wildomar cityhood fundraising efforts are paying off. Wildomar Incorporation Now (WIN) is only $20,000 away from the estimated $100,000 needed for incorporation expenses. A Wildomar Night at the Diamond event on July 28 combined a barbecue tailgate party, a Lake Elsinore Storm baseball game and an after-game fireworks show. Approximately $1,000 was generated from the all-American evening of baseball and hot dogs.

It is the type of local event that the property manager of community newcomer, Gables at Oak Creek Apartments, was looking to sponsor. A grand slam package, promoted through the Wildomar Chamber of Commerce, gave the new gated apartment complex on Prielipp Road an annual membership to the chamber, along with the sponsorship and visibility in the area.

“We’re the new kids in town,” said property manager Sunni Johnson, who also plans to host a chamber mixer in the future. “We’re just starting to get involved in the community. This could be a big hit for us.”

With 39 occupied residences and 12 pre-leased units, the 148-apartment complex is filling up quickly.

Gables at Oak Creek also purchased a brick in the “Pave Your Way to Cityhood” brick program. For a $50 donation, a message is engraved on a special commemorative Wildomar brick, which can be donated for placement at the future Wildomar city hall or kept by the donor. The program is ongoing and slated to end in late September.

“The purpose is to help Wildomar become an independent city,” said Johnson. Athough Gables has its own tot-lot playground, fitness center, pool and spa and barbecue area, Johnson said, “We’re hoping [Wildomar is] going to get parks too.”

Overall, WIN treasurer Gina Castanon said everyone had a good time at the cityhood fundraiser. Miller-Jones Mortuary of Sun City sponsored the tailgate barbecue for a second year in a row.
