Local nonprofit organizations will honor their donors and volunteers at the seventh annual Yolo County Philanthropy Day ceremony from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14. The event, sponsored by the Yolo Community Foundation, will take place in the atrium at the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland.
“So much of the good that happens in Yolo County occurs because of loyal and hard-working people who too often go unrecognized publicly,” said Meg Stallard, foundation board president.
“We hold this annual event to provide a forum for local nonprofits to thank one of their volunteers publicly. It is a heart-warming event to see how much good gets done in Yolo County because of the selfless work of many people.”
The Yolo Community Foundation board also honors outstanding philanthropists from throughout the county at the event.
Organizations may nominate one donor or volunteer, and nominations are due Nov. 8. Past organizations honoring their donors and volunteers have included the Yolo Family Service Agency, Freedom From Hunger, Yolo Family Resource Center, Woodland Literacy Council, Yolo County Children’s Alliance, Yolo Land Trust and Soroptimist International of Woodland.
Light refreshments will be served and reservations are appreciated. For more information, contact Mary Jo Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-312-0593.
