 President's Message 


 

Welcome to the Valle Monte League, Inc. website.

 

Valle Monte League is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization with a membership of over 170 women.  We are dedicated to raising much needed funding for mental health services to help erase the stigma of mental illness and provide support and treatment to those in need. The four local mental health agencies we support are: Family & Children Services, Alzheimer’s Activity Center, Bill Wilson Centre for Living with Dying and Services for Brain Injury.  Since 1950, our cumulative fund raising efforts have exceeded $10,000,000.  Thank you for your generosity!

 

In 2014, Valle Monte was recognized by the City of San Jose with the Spirit of Volunteerism Award at the 2014 State of the City Address.  Then Councilman Pierluigi Oliverio of District 6 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.”

 

Thanks to the efforts of our 2018 Development Committee, we are hosting a new venture this year, our “What Matters Most” Speaker Series, with our inaugural speaker, Dr. Thomas Plante, speaking about his book, “Do the Right Thing.  Living Ethically in an Unethical World.”

 

On the recommendation of our Charity Review Committee, this year we will be offering an additional grant to a non-profit agency that meets the criteria outlined in our Administrative Grants Guidelines.  The grant application deadline is July 31.

 

Please plan to kick-off the holiday season on Friday, November 30, and on Saturday, December 1, by joining us at the San Jose DoubleTree by Hilton for our premiere event fundraiser, Christmas Tree Elegance.  Our 2018 Christmas Tree Elegance Chair, Corinne Raffanti, and her Co-Chairs are presenting “Christmas Dreams-A Walk Down Memory Lane.”  As always, our tree designers will create fabulous trees adorned with unique and dazzling ornaments, lights and gifts.  Our Production Team will present a spectacular fashion show, and our Auction Team will feature amazing travel and event possibilities as well as beautiful gifts. Bring friends and family and experience a magical memory.

 

With your continuing support, Valle Monte League will continue to be the most recognized and respected all-volunteer, nonprofit contributor to mental health agencies in our community!

 

On behalf of our dedicated members and our charities, I thank you, our long-time and our most recent supporters and attendees.  I look forward to greeting all of you at Christmas Tree Elegance 2018.

 

With warm regards,

 

Joyce Raney
