Thank you for paying it forward!

This year during September and October, MCRCC was lucky enough to be one of Coastal Roots Hospitality’s recipients for their Pick It Up-Pay It Forward campaign. This meant community members were able to order takeout from two magnificent Central Coast restaurants: Rio Grill in Carmel and Tarpy’s Roadhouse in Monterey.

10% of the proceeds from take-home orders at both restaurants went directly to support MCRCC, for a total of $15,007! 

Those generous donations from the restaurants will support advocacy, therapy, and prevention services for our community. Examples of services include free presentations to the community, accompaniments for survivors at forensic exams, and a very generous low sliding fee scale for therapy services. 

Here at the MCRCC, we strive to make our services available to anyone and everyone in the community; meaning cost for services should be the last thing survivors have to worry about. With the community’s support, those services are available to more people who need them.

From all of us here at MCRCC: thank you to all the restaurant patrons who supported this fundraiser, to Ken, Mona, Coastal Roots Hospitality, Rio Grill, and Tarpy’s Roadhouse for your tremendous generosity!
