Phylis Mantelli, Brittany Casarez and Paula Goldsmith Janet Rappa and Susan Black Steve Betando and Michelle Moyer Community Solutions’ fall gala, “Black, White & Bling,” was held on November 7, 2015 at Willow Heights Mansion in Morgan Hill. The elegant evening event allowed donors, volunteers and community supporters to don their best bling to shine a light on the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking in South County. Proceeds from the event provide support, care and healing to the survivors of these crimes in our local communities. Frank Leal, new owner of Morgan Hill’s Granada Theater, donated to the night’s live auction two exclusive Theater Event packages that generated $49,000 alone.
