HEARTS OF GILROY Presented by Community Solutions Fun, fashion and philanthropy are the key ingredients that made the 9th Annual Hearts of Gilroy Women’s Luncheon and Auction another great success. On May 30th, community members, donors and volunteers joined together to raise thousands of dollars to support survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking in our community.
