Join us to find out! Each year, a guest is surprised with the Heart of Gilroy award to recognize her active involvement in making Gilroy a better place to live, work and thrive. Past award recipients include Karen Christopher, Paula Goldsmith, Karen Titus and Whitney Pintello, to name a few. For 11 years now, community members have joined together at the Hearts of Gilroy Women’s Luncheon and Auction to raise much-needed funds to improve the lives of local children and families. In addition to live and silent auctions, the event features a hotly contested shoe contest. Proceeds from the event support Community Solutions’ programs to create positive changes in the lives of children and families affected by abuse, violence and mental health issues. Serving our local communities since 1972, Community Solutions programs provided healing and recovery to more than 4,500 children, youth and adults last year alone 6 GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN MARCH/APRIL 2017
