Community Services Agency has scheduled its annual “Hometown Heroes” breakfast fundraiser 7:15 a.m. Sept. 20 at the Computer History Museum, 1401 N. Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View.
“Hometown Heroes” honors individuals, businesses and organizations for their contributions to CSA and the community. CSA provides a safety net for more than 10,000 elderly, low-income and homeless individuals in Mountain View, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills each year.
This year’s honorees:
• The Rev. Brian Leong of Lord’s Grace Christian Church, founder and president of Move Mountain View, a nonprofit organization aimed at reducing the number of RVs on city streets.
• Julia Karr, CSA’s Google ambassador, who has led the charge to launch CSA’s Young Professionals, a group committed to bringing awareness to the issue of local poverty through fundraising, advocacy, social and volunteer efforts.
• Orchard Valley Ceramic Arts Guild, a team of potters who have partnered with CSA on its Empty Bowls Soup Supper event for the past 27 years.
“With all the negative news coming out at the state and national level, this year’s event will be especially meaningful as we celebrate the good things that individuals and organizations are doing to strengthen our community,” said Tom Myers, CSA executive director. “We are looking forward to kicking off the beginning of fall with this festive recognition of our very own hometown heroes.”
Tickets are $60 each. Sponsorships begin at $500.
