Without the identifying sign out front, the well-kept, historical house at 183 Hillview Ave. could be mistaken for just another quiet neighborhood residence. But the old abode is headquarters for a foundation with a diverse lineup of community-building services – from nurturing and funding non-profit groups, to offering mediation and leadership classes.
The Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF), in its 20th year, manages local residents’ donor-advised funds and disburses most of its annual $200,000 allocation from the Los Altos-based David and Lucile Packard Foundation to non-profit groups.
Where/When: Stonebrook Court, Los Altos Hills; Saturday, 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Why Go: Don your 1920s regalia and head to the “Roaring 20’s Gala” for a night of extravagant fun including casino play and a silent auction. Hosted by the Los Altos Community Foundation, Event begins with a cocktail reception and follows with a sit-down dinner, music and dancing. Proceeds will support LACF’s mission to build community through grants to local programs that address community needs.
The Assistance League Costume Bank is the perfect place to get that look from the 20’s whether you’re a flaggper or a gangster! They have many Roaring 20’s items in stock now, some for rent and some for purchase. Get down there quickly for the best selection – they will hold it for you for Gala weekend.
You may even call them for a personal fitting and style guidance at 650-941-2610 and the Costume Bank is generously donating $5 of every rental back to LACF.
The Costume Bank is a nonprofit business owned and operated by Assistance League of Los Altos, an autonomous chapter of the National Assistance League.
