Santa Float
Santa lit everyone's faces when he and his helpful elves rolled into the Longo Campus on a festive float and musical trolley on December 22nd.

Kids and adults enjoyed hot cocoa, while waiting for their photos with Santa. This annual tradition is always joyful, fun, free and open to the public.

Longo's 6th Annual Santa Float event will be held on December 14, 2017 - weather permitting. See you here!

Taste of Arcadia Food & Wine Festival
The recent weather with 105 degree temperatures did not deter the 1,200+ attendees from the Taste of Arcadia.  Everyone enjoyed sampling food, desserts, and drinks from our local vendors throughout the evening.  The DJ had guests tirelessly dancing until the end of the evening.

Longo Toyota-Lexus displayed a Prius and NX in the Business Showcase.  The Longo booth was very popular and the giveaways were a big hit!

    Healthy Kids Wellness Event
As a community partner with the City of El Monte Parks, Recreation and Community Services, we hosted a Free Health & Wellness Fair in July.  

600 people attended. Children enjoyed physical activity on fun obstacle courses, while parents took part in healthy cooking demonstrations.

Longo takes pride in our community and will continue to promote #HealthyElMonte.

    Concerts in the Park
Summers in the San Gabriel Valley begin with great Concerts in the Park. Each enjoyable family friendly is free. What a wonderful opportunity to hear local bands!

The concert series is a fun, festive way to support our local public parks program in Balwin Park, South Pasadena, Covina, Temple City, El Monte, and San Dimas.

We look forward to coming back next year!

Celebrating Earth Day
In April, Longo hosted its 9th Annual Earth Day Celebration for surrounding communities and local businesses. Over 6,000 lbs. of shredded paper and 4,000 lbs. of e-waste were recycled rather than generating trash in our landfills.
Thank you to our p
artners - City of El Monte (pictured with Greg Penske, Councilmen Jay Gomez and Jerry Velasquez and City Manager, Jesus Gomez), our neighbors and team members for taking an active role in protecting our planet and helping us on another successful Earth Day event.

Wear Red Fridays in support of the
American Heart Association (AHA)

February is the awareness month for the American Heart Association. The AHA calculates that an estimated 44 million women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular disease.  Here's the good news: 80% of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and some action.  For more information, please visit .

Our Longo Team Members wearing red on Fridays  increased awareness about cardiovascular health - making our heart health a priority.

     Beanie Drive for City of Hope
Longo's Beanie Drive was a call for hope, warm heads, and big smiles! All styles and sizes of beanies were collected throughout the month of January for men, women, and children.

City of Hope's Community Outreach Specialist, Latascha Johnson (bottom left) accepted over 150 beanies donated by our Longo team members. It's a wonderful feeling when something as small as a hat, can bring smiles and joy to these courageous patients.
