President's Message


2016 President's Message

Welcome to the Valle Monte League, Inc. website. The members of Valle Monte League are dedicated to raising funds to provide mental health services as well as promote better mental health within the community through mental health agencies. We are an all-volunteer organization of more than 170 women with a variety of skills and talents. Our fundraising efforts are focused on four local mental health agencies: Family & Children Services, The Centre for Living with Dying, Alzheimer's Activity Center and Services for Brain Injury. Our cumulative fundraising efforts exceed $9 million for these agencies in our 60-year history. 


In 2014, Valle Monte League was recognized by the City of San Jose with the Spirit of Volunteerism Award at the 2014 State of the City Address. Councilman Pierluigi Oliverio of the 6th District nominated Valle Monte League for this prestigious award and stated: “The spirit of volunteerism exhibited by the women of the Valle Monte League serves as a wonderful example of how determined individuals can help build and strengthen our community.”


2015 marked the second year of the Valle Monte League 10K Walk for Mental Fitness.  This year’s event will take place June 26th at Vasona Park in Los Gatos.  We look forward to another successful event with community participation and are very encouraged by the level of enthusiasm and support we have received! 


This is the 49th year of Christmas Tree Elegance, our premier fundraiser.  Please mark your calendar for December 1st and 2nd to kick off the Holiday Season by attending one of our events.  This year’s theme will be a beautiful trip across the pond to, A Piccadilly Christmas – London Past and Present.  Our dedicated members work year-round to create the wonder of Christmas Tree Elegance for our guests.  Each year we are awed by the vision of our designers who create magical trees adorned with fantastic ornaments, lights and gifts. We are entertained with a spectacular fashion show highlighting the latest fashions, and you can holiday shop at our fabulous silent auctions. We invite you to come and join the festivities.  Bring your friends and make life-long memories with us as you experience this wondrous extravaganza!  Your attendance and support make a positive difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health issues.

Your support is what makes it possible for Valle Monte League to be the most recognized and respected all volunteer, nonprofit contributor to mental health agencies in our community.  On behalf of our team of dedicated volunteer members, I thank you our longtime supporters and welcome our new ones.  I look forward to greeting you at our 49th Annual Christmas Tree Elegance events.
