Black White & Bling 2016

December 10, 2016

What a night! Community Solutions’ “Black, White & Bling” Gala had the honor of being the premier event held at the newly remodeled Leal Granada Theatre in downtown Morgan Hill. The event, held on Saturday, December 10, 2016, sold out in seven days and filled the Theatre with 300 guests for an elegant evening of fun and philanthropy.

The excitement was palpable as each guest arrived, dressed in their best finery and eager to get the first peek at the Granada Theatre. They were not disappointed. In true Frank Leal style, the venue ‘wowed’ the crowd with its classic elegance, complete with shimmering chandeliers throughout and a baby grand piano on stage. Sponsored by Leal Vineyards, Ladera Grill, and many other local businesses and individuals, the Black, White, and Bling Gala brought together a cadre of enthusiastic and generous donors, volunteers and community supporters to help raise awareness and funds for local children, youth and families in crisis.

In addition to champagne, wine and a plated dinner, guests enjoyed live and silent auctions and a rousing game of “Heads or Tails” with the winner taking home a wine package valued at more than $2,000. The event raised more than $85,000 to support Community Solutions’ services and programs providing care and healing to local children, youth and families.
