Dedicated to community involvement
As long-time Santa Rosa residents, Bill and Lindy Buchanan (Club Owners) have made it a focus to give back to the local community. They are generous in their support of the Sonoma County community and make contributions to local causes on a regular basis. Through the clubs and their employees and members, they support causes ranging from food and clothing drives to hosting events that raise funds for charities. Every fall, they host a fundraising competition in support of local agencies in need and then personally match all funds raised by member participation. The Buchanan’s are inspiring examples of how individuals and businesses can make a difference and contribute to the vitality of their community.
Parkpoint is honored to partner with these local youth groups to support the development of healthy lifestyles:
- Youth Connections
- The REACH program of The Boys and Girls Club
- Worth Our Weight (WOW), a culinary school for at-risk youth
- Sonoma Valley Mentoring Alliance
- Sonoma Valley High School Basketball Team
Our clubs also provide Cancer Wellness Programs to help support cancer patients through the physical and emotional rigors of their treatment and recovery. Santa Rosa Parkpoint partners with Sutter’s Cancer Support Services to offer free classes to cancer patients in the community. Exercise 2 Wellness, our Cancer Wellness Program, includes strength and cardio work, yoga, qigong, and relaxation/visualization instruction. Our Sonoma club offers an extensive Cancer Program as well, the IMPACT Cancer Program, which provides personal training services and support.
