Meg Stallard, president of the board of the Yolo Community Foundation, announced that the eleventh annual Yolo County Philanthropy Day Celebration will be held on Thursday, Nov. 16, at the Woodland Opera House, 340 Main Street, Woodland, from 5:30-7 p.m.
“We hold this annual event to provide a forum for local nonprofits to thank one of their donors or volunteers publicly,” said Stallard. “We created the celebration to bring attention to the impact and importance of local philanthropy. It is truly heart-warming to learn how much good gets done in Yolo County because of the generosity of many people.”
Information on participating in this event will be circulated to the local nonprofit community. Nominations are due by Nov. 2. Past organizations honoring their donors and volunteers have included CommuniCare, Empower Yolo, Woodland United Way, Yolo County Housing, Yolo Family Services Agency, Yolo Food Bank, Yolo Hospice, Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network, Yolo Land Trust, along with many others. Organizations may nominate one donor or volunteer.
Light refreshments will be served and reservations are necessary. Information on the program may also be obtained from Executive Director Babs Sandeen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-312-0593.
