Description
OCCC provides funds for the repair and stabilization of the Old City Cemetery headstones and monuments. In 2020, OCCC was able to repair over 20 grave markers. These represent $50, 500 in repairs and because of the response in last year's Big Day of Giving, 155 lot markers were placed in Old City Cemetery. We are looking forward to adding more lot markers this spring through the fall.
Budget
$26,000
Program Successes
We have provided over $200,000 of restoration work of headstones and monument repair to date.
Description
The Lantern Tours are our major annual fundraiser. As a non-profit, it can be difficult to offset the cost of putting together this fundraiser on our own. We reach out to other local organizations to see how they may be able to help support our event and further our mission of preserving one of Sacramento's historical landmarks.

Due COVID 19, we weren't able to present the Lantern Tours for 2020 but are looking ahead to 2021 if circumstances allow,
Budget
$32,000
Program Successes
These highly popular tours attract over 600 attendees over the course of four days. We hold five tours per evening, each with about 35 attendees. We sell out on the first day of ticket sales.
