The final numbers are in, and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Gilroy’s recent “Party at the Vineyard” was a huge success. The event raised more than $26,000 with the proceeds going to support the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, the facility that cares for low-income children and families.

The 11th annual fundraising luncheon and auction was once again held Fortino Winery May 19. A host of valuable items were donated for the silent and live auctions, including a set of braces valued at $7,500, a three-night and two-night stay at Lake Tahoe, two at La Selva Beach, one night at Monterey Plaza Hotel, two nights in Napa, golf outings, and much more.

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, located at Stanford University, treats any child or expectant mother in the community who needs specialized care, regardless of their ability to pay.  Each year, more than 71,000 children and expectant mothers depend on Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital for expert medical care.

“We couldn’t be more excited about how this event turned out and the money raised for such an important cause as Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital,” said John Agresta, manager of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Gilroy office. “Thanks to everyone who came out to support the hospital, as well as all of the folks who worked to make this event possible.”
