This past weekend we held our annual Bloom "A Tea for Hope" event and this was truly the place to be. With a beautiful setting, delectable food catered by Greens Market, fabulous live & silent auction items it was a memorable day for all who attended. We cannot thank Dr. Stephen & Ann Endsley enough for opening their home to us. Our guest speaker Olivia Villarreal a former foster child that has advocated for foster youth since the age of 15 spoke to our guests about how their contributions to the youth in our community can make a difference. This year was a big success and we thank everybody who joined us in support of our foster care mentoring program. Through your generosity, we are building a road of hope and possibility for our foster youth.

Sierra Vista's residential treatment and foster care children put on an art show this past week. It was an amazing opportunity for our kids to share their artistic talents with all who came. Not only did the kids pick their best art to show off but they also made cookies and cupcakes for all to enjoy while viewing.
 You could truly recognize the value of the art show when you saw the excitement on each kids face as people congratulated them on the great artwork. The art projects ranged from watercolor, paint, charcoal, mixed media, and crafts. It was easy to see that a lot of these children have a lot of talent and were able to express what they loved through their work.

Sierra Vista Child & Family Services 20th Annual Golf Tournament was a great success! Thank you to all of those who came out and supported us.

All of our golfers were treated to amazing weather at the Turlock Golf & Country Club. The tournament was filled with friendly competition, great food, and drinks. Congratulations to Les Azevedo for breaking the glass and winning $250 from Don's Mobile Glass. After the tournament during the dinner we had a special presentation for all the sponsors who have supported us throughout the 20 years. What started out as a small tournament for valley nut processors has evolved into a major fundraising event for Sierra Vista.

We want to thank our Eagle Sponsors Pacific/Atlantic Crop Exchange and Winton-Ireland Strom & Green Insurance Agency for their continuous support to the children and families we serve in our community.
