Message from our Executive Director

“Well done, Old Chap!” Gatsby would say when things went well – and they did for Gilroy Foundation on Saturday, October 1!  

An enormous “THANK YOU” goes to our Great Gatsby event co-chairs, Karen Titus and Yvonne Quilici.  They had a fabulous vision of the evening and their wonderful volunteer committee along with our Event Coordinator and staff, helped them bring it to fruition and create a magical night.  Our guests were decked out in their finest 1920’s attire; the cocktails and wine flowed; Dave Bozzo’s food was delicious; and the auctions were fun, lively!

We appreciate our sponsors, our donors and our bidders on making this year’s A Day in the Country another success!
