“Casting Spells of Kindness” 2017

SAVE the DATE ==>  October 27, 2017 – Fairmont Hotel, San Jose

The ladies of Bella Vista League are revving up again to create another spectacular event to support this year’s well-deserved non-profits. After much consideration, we are pleased to announce that this year, the following non-profit organizations will benefit from our Wonderful Witchy Women With A Cause efforts:

FamilySupportiveHousingFamily Supportive Housing (www.familysupportivehousing.org): For 30 years, Family Supportive Housing has guided families from crisis to self sufficiency. While keeping families intact, Family Supportive Housing focuses on single or two-parent families to address their needs for food, shelter, employment, and education.

OperationFreedomPawsOperation Freedom Paws (www.operationfreedompaws.org): Operation Freedom Paws empowers veterans and others, such as family members, with disabilities like Post Traumatic Stress or Traumatic Brain Injury to restore their own independence. Encouraging a special therapeutic canine-human relationship between veteran and rescue dog through training for several weeks enables these individuals to feel safe, secure, and able to manage their everyday lives. As one veteran’s daughter said, “The day you gave us our service dog was the day you gave us our father back.”

CityTeam_HeritageHomeHeritage Home (www.cityteam.org): Cityteam’s Heritage Home is a residential program to help pregnant women successfully overcome homelessness, addiction, and other hardships to become loving mothers to their newborn babies.

The work that all of these organizations do to help local people in need is extraordinary and we are looking forward to doing everything we can to help. Please join us in helping these non-profits to continue their work by coming to the 2017 Wonderful Witchy Women With A Cause luncheon and silent auction on October 27, 2017, at 10:30a.m., at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel in downtown San Jose.

The Candy Man Can…and more

Remember how I said there are many unique things about the Wonderful Witchy Women luncheon fundraiser that makes it so fun? Well, read on…

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew…candymen

Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two..

The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can…


The Candy Man can ‘cause he sells boxes of chocolates for a raffle tix or two…

Seek out the tuxedo-garbed band of Candy men strolling around the venue to purchase box(es) of gourmet chocolates from local chocolatier, Chocolate Dream Box [1 box = $25, 2+ boxes = $20 each, and 5 boxes for $100] to obtain your raffle tickets for the drawing of an exclusive, one-of-WWW CANDYMAN TRAY PICTUREa-kind, Aquamarine ring by perennial Wonderful Witchy Women supporter, Joe Escobar Diamonds

Each year, J. Escobar designs a stunning piece of diamond-studded jewelry for our annual auction and it always boggles our collective minds how they are able to come up with one gorgeous design after another. And this year’s piece is no exception.

wwwc2015-6As this will certainly be a memorable affair, stop by the Step & Repeat banner to capture a few fun moments with your friends.

Head up to the multitude of themed baskets and
one-of-a-kind signature experiences for bidding. Fitness packages, photography sessions, spa treatments, intimate gourmet dinner parties, sports and theater tickets, sailing excursions, getaways near and far and much, much more. There is a broad variety of auction items sure to appeal to everyone.

wwwc2015-187When the doors open, find your table, admire the unique custom-designed centerpiece (remember, you can purchase one for yourself), savor the Autumn-inspired luncheon, and enjoy the program. Representatives from each of the charities supported this year will share stories from the work they’ve done and remind us all why we have gathered together. As in year’s past, there won’t be a dry eye in the room.
