Goldrich Kest, owner of the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort in Newport Beach, is celebrating the company's 60th anniversary with a 60 Acts of Kindness mission and is seeking nominations for people it can help.
"Goldrich Kest was built on recognizing and fulfilling the needs of a wide spectrum of people, and philanthropy has been a bedrock of our 60-year history," company President Carole Glodney said in a statement. "Since we launched our 60 Acts campaign, we have helped a great number of folks from different backgrounds, including a former homeless man who needed a new computer so he could continue directing L.A.'s poorest people to resources that could help them, and a young boy with cancer whose wish was for his family to visit Legoland before he starts chemotherapy."
To submit a nomination, send a one-page description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
