Lifeguard Tower Exhibition Part 2

Summer is here and LA County lifeguard towers are getting a makeover. Image Options donated and completed the outlined pattern printing for the lifeguard tower walls and rooftop. Through the creators of this wonderful program, Portraits of Hope, all the lifeguard tower panels were painted by youngsters and adults who often face medical, physical, or socio-economic challenges.

Pacific Marine Mammal Center

Pacific Marine Mammal Center is a non-profit organization that has been rescuing and rehabilitating sick and injured marine mammals such as seals and sea lions for nearly 40 years. They are the only organization in all of Orange County licensed to treat marine mammals, and upon the patient’s recovery they release them back into the wild for a second chance at life.

The donor sign that Image Options printed was to recognize a large contributor, The Annenberg Foundation, who made it possible for PMMC to renovate part of their downstairs ICU pens. Because of their sizable contribution, PMMC was able to add heated flooring, expand their nursery units and fish prep areas which drastically enhanced their ability to care for their most critical patients. Image Options also printed a smaller sign that recognized all notable donors and their contributions to the entire renovation project. PMMC felt it was important to recognize the selflessness and generosity of the many organizations who played a role in enhancing their Center, and they feel confident that when the donors come to visit they will be pleased with their recognition board.

Image Options has been extremely generous to PMMC over the years. PMMC has 6 3ft x 4ft poster boards of animal photos hanging in their educational classroom that help educate thousands of children and members of the public each year on marine mammals. They also use a plethora of 2ft x 3ft boards created by Image Options that showcase photos of their rescues, releases, and rehabilitation processes to approximately 30 tradeshows each year. The images bring to life some of their most memorable moments within their organization, and also help people to clearly understand the important work that takes place at PMMC. They feel fortunate to have a partnership with Image Options, and have rarely run across another company that has shown half as much generosity.
