Dear Friends,

As most of you know, I am a member of Valle Monte League.  Our mission is to raise funds for three vital mental health agencies in Santa Clara Valley via our primary  fundraiser Christmas Tree Elegance.  Unfortunately, due to Covid, the 53rd annual event has been cancelled and replaced with a Virtual Fundraising campaign – Making Spirits Bright – which runs from November 1st through December 31st.

This year more than ever, our mental health agencies need our support.  As a past attendee of Christmas Tree Elegance and a generous donor for local mental health charities would you please consider donating again this year?    Any amount will help!  Click on this link to: donate now (and please list me as the person who referred you to the fundraiser).

More information about Valle Monte League and our charities can be found in the links below:

YES, I WANT TO DONATE!  (it would be helpful if you listed me as the person who referred you to our fundraiser)

Thank you for your friendship and support!  Looking forward to raising a glass of champagne with you at future Christmas Tree Elegance event!
