SONOMA LIFE - Rabobank Opening & Sweetheart Auction and Gala
Life in Sonoma
It's beginning to look a lot like Switzerland ... Holland! - Rabobank opened a Sonoma Branch and we were very happy to have been invited to the cutting ribbon ceremony. Sean Cutting, Cathleen Gorham and staff were there to welcome clients and guests to their new facility. A great way to end a beautiful winter day in Sonoma Valley surrounded by familiar faces and friends sharing a glass of wine and food. Please join us in welcoming Rabobank to Sonoma.
The 26th Annual Sweetheart Auction and Gala was held last Saturday, another Only in Sonoma evening. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley “fund a need” portion of the event raised over $88,000 to help fund summer day camp programs, in addition to specialty camps that will include, athletic clinics, cooking, climbing wall and science. Each day, the kids receive free lunch and snacks through our partnership with the Redwood Empire Food Bank.
A big thank-you to all the sponsors: Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, MetLife (and Snoopy), The Other Guys and Nelson Family of Companies, Rick and Lisa Cavalli, and Les & Judy Vadasz.
The successful event was the result of a fantastic group effort of dedicated community members including the B&G Club’s Board of Directors and committee members, wonderful volunteers, B&G Club staff and local businesses.
The Club serves over 500 kids each day of the week at five sites. That’s more than 2,000 kids a year, 40% of the school age population here in Sonoma Valley.
New businesses, familiar faces, the boys, the girls these all elements that make our community such a great place to live and work.
