A Summer Solstice Celebration to Remember

By Terence Lee

EqOpTech attended the Los Altos Community Foundation 2017 Summer Solstice Celebration on June 24, 2017. Held at The Wayman Home (formerly Adobe Creek Lodge), the garden party featured locally produced wine, appetizers, live music, and friends from the local community.

Happy Summer Solstice: here's 3 reasons why we love the LACF summer solstice.

1. Networking with the Community

This is a great opportunity to reconnect and/or meet friends. We have the pleasure of seeing Lisa Chung from the District Representative Senator Jerry Hill's office again and meet the Interns, Clay Volino & Georgia Lyon.

Sana Khader, Leadership Council at LACF E3 (educate, engage, and empower) Youth Philanthropy gave a presentation about its program and vision to bring forth positive social change through service, leadership and grant making activities. Sana is also a senior from Los Altos High School and an active volunteer at EqOpTech's Computer-in-a-Box service project via the National Honor Society.

In addition to the E3 Youth program, we are also introduced to representatives from the LEAD (Leadership, Education and Advancement Program), CAFE (Center for Age Friendly Excellence) as well as Los Altos BAT (Los Altos BAT Action Teams) and other local nonprofits. EqOpTech appreciates and welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with these organizations to make a difference in our community.

Joe Eyre, LACF Executive Director, spoke to the audience about the Foundation, its vision, programs and ways to get involved.
