Hathaway-Sycamores’ Los Altos Auxiliary Raises Funds

Los Altos Auxiliary of Hathaway-Sycamores recently hosted its annual wine-tasting fundraiser at the Thursday Club, which was co-chaired by Kelly Springer and Hilary Gregg. This year’s theme was “A Taste of South America.” Guests sampled seven unique wines from the region, while savoring delicious “aperitivos” compliments of Porta Via. During the evening, they showed their support via an online auction, direct donations to specific programs, a mystery wine pull and sales of floral arrangements. Event proceeds allow Los Altos to support Hathaway-Sycamores’ El Nido residential therapy program year-round with activities, as well as campus additions and resources. In past years, Los Altos has been able to enrich the lives of the boys at El Nido in meaningful ways by providing their first on-campus library, computer stations, new playground equipment, silk-screening training, an art center, summer field trips and the remodeling of residential facilities. Los Altos members also make sure that every child is celebrated on holidays and birthdays — an act of kindness that goes a long way toward making these children feel special and loved.
