Oh what a wonderful starry, starry night! We’re talking about our Oct 21, 2022 Fall Fundraiser “Starry, Starry Night…At the Ranch.” It was a huge success due to our creative, awesome, tireless, incredible Event Chairs, Lorri Jones Mino and Janie Woodburn.
Thank you to our generous sponsors who helped make this night possible. And all the guests who attended and participated in our Silent Auction, Live Auction, Wine Pull, and Fund A Need. It was so fun to see guests bid on and win the trip of their dreams!!! We are so grateful and touched by the kind hearts of our guests and members as seen in the Fund A Need drive.
Net proceeds will benefit 1736 Family Crisis Center - 1736 FCC; Community's Child; Manes for Movement and 11 other South Bay philanthropies.
Thank you to Jean Cordero of Entertaining Friends Catering for another incredible display of food. You continue to amaze us.
Thank you to Andy & Renee & Hard Rain for entertaining us for the second year in a row! You kept everyone on their feet. We’re your number 1 fans! Sponsored by Malaga Bank.
Thank you to the Mike and Bobbi of Elite Auctions & Fundraising Services for hosting the evening and live auction. You both are wonderful, helpful, and so much fun!
Thank you to Clark Brown for entertaining us with your magic. We are still perplexed……..
Thank you to Foto Mirror for providing our guests with a beautiful photo keepsake of the evening. We think we’ll see some of these on holiday cards.
Thank you to the Empty Saddle Club for your unique and welcoming venue. So many guests didn’t know there is a working ranch in South Bay.
And the biggest thank you goes to our members whose dedication to the Children and Environment of the South Bay is the reason we are able to support our philanthropies and put on fabulous events like this one.
Save the date for our Spring Fundraising Event, April 29th, 2023 at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium! Details to come soon!
