100 Women Shop & Dine Day – Downtown Los Altos – November 18, 2014
100 Women Charitable Foundation will hold the 2nd annual 100 Women Shop & Dine Day in downtown Los Altos on November 18, 2014. The 100 Women Charitable Foundation has partnered with Los Altos merchants for a shopping & dining event, where a percentage of sales from the day will be donated to the Foundation, and then 100% of those proceeds will be distributed by the Foundation to six local nonprofits in early March at the Foundation’s annual membership voting dinner. The inaugural event in 2013 raised almost $6,000, thanks to the combined efforts of participating merchants and shoppers/diners in downtown Los Altos.
Based on feedback from both merchants and members, this year’s event has been moved earlier to mid-November to draw more leisurely shoppers than in the first week of December and to avoid conflicts with other holiday events. The event hours are 10:00 6:00 (at most stores), and there will be a no host happy hour at First & Main from 4:00 7:00 pm. The event is open to the general public. The list of participants continues to grow, but confirmed to date is:
First and Main
Know Knew Books
Lisa’s Tea Treasures
