Grant Received for Counseling & Respite
The Respite Partnership Collaborative has awarded Del Oro Caregiver Resource Center
approximately $40,000 to provide respite care and counseling, to help family caregivers
develop skills and a care plan to help stabilize their caregiving situation in Sacramento
The collaborative, which Financing for the respite alternatives comes from Sacramento
County's Mental Health Services Act, sets aside a portion of funds for the development
of innovative solutions to serving the needs of mental health consumers.
“This funding will support innovative and wide-reaching solutions that offer a critical
‘time out’ for community members to take a break during a mental health crisis,”
commented Sierra Health Foundation President and CEO Chet P. Hewitt. “These solutions
move us significantly closer to meeting acute mental health needs while easing emergency
room overcrowding in Sacramento County.”
Del Oro Caregiver Resource Center’s 4th Annual Champagne Concerto to benefit caregivers
was a huge success, raising $19,751 to provide respite to family caregivers in our
community. The event was held on April 13th in Granite Bay and is a product of
a supportive and proactive teen, Austin Lee. For the fourth consecutive year, Austin
has expressed his desire to assist family caregivers in the community by raising
awareness and funds through this worthwhile event.
Del Oro would like to extend a very special thank you to the Lee Family, all of our
sponsors and the gifted performers for making this event possible.

Austin Lee Creates Magic Beyond the Keys
Granite Bay teen, Austin Lee, started playing the piano at age seven. He quickly
became proficient at making music that magically lingers far after the notes have
After learning about funding shortages at the Del Oro Caregiver Resource Center in
2010, Austin decided to help and combined his talent as a gifted pianist with his
compassion to serve the family caregivers in our community by organizing a fundraiser,
“Champagne Concerto.” Now in our 4th year, Austin and a committee of volunteers
has raised $55,571.
Currently a junior at Granite Bay High School, Austin is beginning to think about
college. He hasn’t honed in on any particular school, but thinks he wants to go east.
And though music will always be part of his life, he is leaning toward a career in
health administration. Curious about what this young and gifted piano player has
on his iPod? It’s not what you might think. “I like Coldplay, alternative music and
rap. . . “, he said with a wide smile. He also loves playing video games, tennis
and skateboarding when time allows. And he is learning to play the guitar.
Where will Austin’s magic music take him next? The path isn’t clear, but one thing
is for sure, he will make music wherever he goes.
