"There are always more people than we are able to honor in this community," said Mary Hohensee, vice president of development at Avenidas. "There's been so much incredible work done in this community, and this valley doesn't exist because people only cared about themselves. It exists because people went out and did for others, and this is a great reflection of that."
Avenidas will host a garden party for the honorees on Sunday, May 20, from 3 to 5 p.m. along with its community partners, the Palo Alto Weekly and Palo Alto Online. Proceeds from the garden party help fund the programs offered at Avenidas. Tickets can be purchased for $75 by contacting Avenidas at 650-289-5445 or www.avenidas.org.
