Silicon Valley came dressed to the nines and full of spirit to celebrate the 2017 VMC Foundation Annual Gala, “Puttin’ on the Ritz”. It was an amazing evening and we are truly grateful to everyone who participated. This year was the largest year we have seen yet with a whopping 480 attendees. We also raised more than ever, with over $370,000 for Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, ensuring that everyone in our community receives high-quality healthcare regardless of their ability to pay. Truly, this was a magical evening. To view all the pictures from this year’s event, head to our Facebook page and check out our photo album!
The VMC Foundation has so many people to thank for making this year’s gala a success. A special thanks to our event partners, Parsley, Sage Rosemary, & Thyme, Photography By Busa, Modern Collective Dance Co., Nothing Bundt Cakes, Spotlight Entertainment, Black Olive Jazz, Vintage Wine Merchants, Citti’s Florist, Almaden Press, Method42, Burrell School Vineyards & Wine, Corinthian Ground Transportation Services and Hensley Event Rentals. We are also hugely grateful to our event committee for their tireless work compiling an amazing live and silent auction, which raised a record-breaking amount for VMC. And, of course, our deepest thanks to the many event and table sponsors, without whom our gala would not be possible!
If you weren’t able to join us this year for the VMC Foundation Annual Gala, “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, we hope to see you next year. And as always, thank you to our champions and supporters!
