In 1942, a group of women decided that it could raise funds to improve the community. The initial projects included war-effort contributions, starting a children’s theater, and the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento. As the decades passed, the women expanded their outreach, and today the Junior League of Sacramento welcomes all women aged 21 and older to engage in volunteerism in the community. Among their many outreach efforts, the group assists nonprofits and community programs through charitable work and fundraising to help programs reach those in need.

The Sacramento Zoo’s ZooMobile brings a menagerie of birds, snakes, and amphibians to schools, along with trained instructors who teach the importance of protecting these animals’ habitats. The live animal visits enhance lessons about animals’ characteristics and adaptation to natural environments, with presentations specifically tailored to each grade level and to meet the California Department of Education's life-sciences standards.

Augustines's passion for flying began when he was just 8 years old and living next to an airport. Today, as an adult, Augustines still loves airplanes?so much so that after becoming a decorated fighter and helicopter pilot in the Air Force, and flying in exotic locales such as the Himalayas and Hawaii, he shares his 30 years of flying experience with students and instructors at JetEXE Aviation. He's one of the two flight instructors at JetEXE Aviation, teaching budding pilots how to fly out of Sacramento Airport. Under his or his fellow instructor's tutelage, students can enjoy introductory flights or more rigorous training that preps them for assorted pilot licenses. For non-pilots, the aviation company's team also helms charter flights, ideal for getting from Point A to Point B without having to tunnel there, and customizes the flights for each customer, including Bay area and Napa Valley tours.

When Primo's Swiss Club in Oak Park closed, its empty building was left to the elements, growing more dilapidated with every year. That is, until the owners of Arthur Henry's Supper Club & Ruby Room stepped in. They painstakingly restored the historic building's interior, exterior, and secret trans-dimensional wormholes, creating an elegant supper club and late-night lounge. The renovation's piece de resistance is a large, communal grill placed in the center of the dining room?here, diners grill their own rib-eyes, filet mignons, and skewers of marinated tenderloin or scallops exactly the way they desire, complete with seasonings. Once the meat is grilled to perfection, diners return to their tables where side salads and slices of house-made garlic bread await.

To help wash down every bite, the bar serves a well curated selection of craft beer and mixes cocktails ranging from classic mint juleps to house creations such as the Dancing Grizzly: a blend of scotch, simple syrup, and fresh orange juice. On many nights, live musicians provide a lively soundtrack to dining and drinking.
