WHAT:  A Roaring 20’s Gala ~ LACF Celebrates 20 Years of Community is a community-wide celebration of the Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF) milestone of serving the Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and surrounding areas for twenty years. Funds derived from the event will go to grants, projects and programs provided by LACF to strengthen weaknesses and fill gaps in areas of need within our community, including services to schools, children and teens, our aging population, and the community at-large.

EVENT DETAILS: The Gala will be held at the magnificent, architectural masterpiece Stonebrook Court Estate (formally Morgan Manor & Ford Country Day School) in Los Altos Hills on the evening of Saturday, August 27th.  The estate is especially well suited to our Roaring 20’s theme, with an expansive lawn providing the setting for a garden party reception with live jazz, sit-down dinner and short program, to be followed by dancing and Casino play in the Grand Ballroom.  Guests are encouraged to embrace the unbridled enthusiasm of the jazz era and come in costume, with vintage cars and a photo opportunity to greet you as you begin to celebrate the Roaring 20’s in style.
