Villa Siena, a senior-living community in Mountain View, hosted its fourth annual Bocce Ball Tournament at Campo di Bocce April 24.
Proceeds from the fundraiser support Villa Siena in continuing its mission of providing comprehensive, compassionate care for senior residents after they have outlived their financial resources.
Twenty-two teams participated in round-robin play, with the top eight teams advancing to the single-elimination round.
The winning team, the Bernard/Costa Team, included members Joel Costa, Mayou Bernard, France Reilly, Chris Heiser, Bob Brust and Doug Fogel.
The Daughters of Charity’s Team Two captured second place, captained by Sr. Janet Barrett, D.C., with members Sr. Lisa Laguna, D.C.; Mary McKenna Foley; Sr. Patricia Huffman, D.C.; Frank Foley; and Sr. Jean Marie Williams, D.C.
Eight students from Notre Dame High School acted as court referees. Frank Sunseri ran the live auction, featuring donated items that raised additional funds for the Villa Siena Foundation.
The Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul sponsors Villa Siena, a residential care and nursing facility located at 1855 Miramonte Ave.
Villa Siena broke ground on a three-phase renovation project in 2009. Two of the phases are complete, and the third will result in 10 new nursing-care units, remodeling of existing nursing units and restoration of the site’s Historical House.
