Sponsor the Solstice

Guests enjoy LACF’s 2016 Summer Solstice

What is the Summer Solstice?

Los Altos Community Foundation’s Summer Solstice Celebration is an elegant garden party held at a large private residence, featuring wine from local vintners, passed appetizers and live music.  The event also is an opportunity for those in the community to learn more about the Foundation’s work and volunteer opportunities.

The event is from 5:30-8:30pm on June 23rd.  This year, the Solstice will be held at the Wayman residence in Los Altos Hills.  This estate was formerly known as the Adobe Creek Lodge.

The Solstice is attended by upwards of 250 guests, many of whom are among the most affluent and influential members of our community.

LACF raises nearly 20K at SV Gives Event

Thank you 2Thanks to You and SV Gives!

LACF raised nearly $20,000 from 80 donors on May 6, through SV Gives. This amount does NOT include the matching dollars, so we’re hoping that final number will be even higher.

We’re still waiting for the SV Gives report to know how many matching dollars we’ll be receiving, so stay tuned for more good news. Thanks for your support of the Los Altos Community Foundation and all the programs that we serve. We couldn’t do it without you!

First Friday Fundraiser on July 13th

First friday fundraiser at Nature Gallery Los Altos 
Carol Garsten, owner of the Nature Gallery, is hosting an exclusive wine tasting fundraiser to benefit the First Friday program.  Proceeds will be used to hire a part time person to coordinate First Friday planning and execution.  As you may know, First Fridays promote community building by enabling residents to socialize, enjoy time together, and dine in our unique downtown while getting to know the merchants and their businesses.  Joe Eyre started the First Fridays in 2011 and would like to pass the reins to a new person so he can focus on LACF.
  
The event, from 6-8pm, features a wonderful sommelier pouring a selection of exclusive wines, delicious hors d’ oeuvres, and a silent auction.
  
Attendance will be limited to the first 50 who RSVP.  You can sign up by sending a check to the Los Altos Community Foundation (note First Fridaybenefit) in the memo line or by paying online.  For questions, contact Carol at the Nature Gallery,  at 650-327-8700.

First Fridays are organized by Los Altos Forward, a volunteer group dedicated to promoting vibrancy in our downtown.  Los Altos Forward is a program of the Los Altos Community Foundation,l
