The Los Altos Auxiliary of Hathaway-Sycamores regretfully announce the cancellation of its annual wine tasting fundraiser which had been scheduled for Sunday, April 26, 2020. For the past twelve years, funds raised from this annual event directly supported the youth at Hathaway-Sycamores’ El Nido residential campus in Altadena by providing educational materials and programs, enriching extracurricular opportunities, and funding campus improvements. Although this year’s event is canceled, members of the Los Alto Auxiliary know that youth at Hathaway-Sycamores need their support now more than ever. The online auction for the event is still happening April 13th through April 28th. As in past years, the auction has some great items that anyone can bid on from the safety of their own home.
Los Altos Co-President Carol DeFond is grateful for the support shown by this community over the years for this event. DeFond shared the group’s hopes that even with the cancelation they will be able to raise funds for the boys on campus. “We hope, if you are able, you will join us in making a difference for the youth during this difficult year.” Please visit the Los Altos website at www.losaltosauxiliary.org to participate in the online auction or to donate.
