WOMEN~SV, along with several other women’s groups “convened” the community at Main Street Café in downtown Los Altos, on Thursday , Feb 14,.
And what a huge success it was, thanks to all the wonderful women—and men!! —who turned out to express their idea of what healthy love looks like. It was SRO—Standing Room Only!! —as you can see from the pics:
And the paparazzi were out in full force! Here’s the link to the Patch coverage which includes a brief video clip:
We all shared songs, read poetry, spoke from the heart. And everyone who participated got a rose, thanks to a generous donation from Trader’s Joes.
People are still talking about the spirit of love, solidarity, and connection that filled the room, proving once again there are no strangers at Jaime’s café—only friends we haven’t met yet. In fact it was so successful that Jaimie says we can do it all again next year. Thanks Jaimie! Thanks to everyone who was there that day—in person or in spirit—and who helped us show the world what “true love” really looks like!

Los Altos residents braved a rainy Friday evening for the annual Holiday Stroll. The Los Altos Community Foundation greeted soggy strollers with cider, ornament crafts, and an original holiday song created by Vicki Reeder.
On October 16th, Board members, staff, Founders and other supporters of LACF gathered for a Harvest-themed brunch at the beautifully decorated Los Altos Golf and Country Club.
The Annual Brunch serves as both an informational and social event, providing guests the opportunity to hear Executive Director Roy Lave give an update on the highlights of the current fiscal year, which included some staffing additions and an acknowledgment of the success of the fundraising Gala held in August.
Keynote speaker, Carol Larson, President and CEO of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, discussed the partnership between their foundation and LACF, siting the important role we play in the vetting of grant requests and distribution of funds to local organizations.
Skye Delano, Program Director for LACF’s E-3 youth philanthropy program shared her group’s enthusiasm for discovering youth-led opportunities that the E-3 group engages with. Through E-3 (Engage, Educate, Empower), middle school and high school students learn about the importance of philanthropy at any age. Four members of the E-3 program presented their work and how empowering it felt to be able to give to members of our community in need.
