BrightStar Care of San Francisco & Marin County, a home care and medical staffing agency, is proud to announce it will be an “Out-of-Sight” sponsor of the Whistlestop, which provides a full range of services to seniors and disabled residents of Marin, “Whistlestock” on Sunday, September 25. Whistlestock is a day of joy and music taking place at Rancho Nicasio, a favorite venue of musicians from Northern California and beyond, from 3-6 p.m. Acts include the Unauthorized Rolling Stones, Rick Stevens, former lead singer of Tower of Power, and Lydia Pense & Cold Blood. There will also be dancing, BBQ and a costume contest.

“There are few community service organizations that are as effective as Whistlestop, and the leadership at Whistlestop has done a remarkable job of identifying how they can serve their clients best, then execute it brilliantly,” said Paul Wichman, president/owner of BrightStar Care of San Francisco & Marin County. “When the opportunity to sponsor Whistlestock appeared, I jumped at it. The event epitomizes the Whistlestop community and demonstrates the commitment to supporting seniors in Marin.”

Additionally, BrightStar Care recently donated $4,500 to Giant Steps Therapeutic Equestrian Center at its biggest fundraising event of the year, the Giant Steps Charity Classic. Giant Steps is a non-profit therapeutic equestrian program that creates a supportive and dynamic environment to enhance the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities living in the San Francisco Bay area.

“It is an honor to support Giant Steps, whose mission is to offer life-changing therapy to people of all ages with a wide range of physical, emotional and developmental challenges ranging from Autism and Cerebral Palsy to Down's syndrome,” said Wichman. “Giant Steps also assists veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), wounded service members, active duty military members, and children considered to be ‘at-risk.’”
