We hope you had a chance to “virtually” join us for Day in the Country 2021 on October 2!

An enormous “THANK YOU” goes out to our Event Chair Carlos Pineda!  Along with his fabulous committee and the Foundation’s Event Coordinator, Deb Sanchez, the virtual event proved to be a challenging yet such a fun experience. Guest auctioneer, Whitney Pintello, led the Livestream from The Neon Exchange in downtown Gilroy with her usual humor and flare.  The Bollywood For Life dancers were amazing, and our guest dancers, Whitney, Carlos, and Deb, joined in for the live dance routines!  Everyone looked great in their Indian-inspired wardrobes!

We appreciate our Sponsors, our Donors, and our Bidders for making this year’s A Day in the Country…in the Spirit of Bollywood another success!

We have posted photos on Facebook and Instagram, so please check those out.  And, the Live Stream from Saturday’s event is on our YouTube channel.

As we continue through these trying times, we move forward with our work.  We hope our community stays safe and strong.
