WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH LUNCHEON RESCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 21, 2020

Dear Women’s History Month Luncheon Attendees and Supporters,

 

As you know, the coronavirus pandemic has led many governments and businesses to take strong measures to protect their constituents and clientele from the spread of this disease.  Likewise, the Solano County Library Foundation and the Women’s History Month Luncheon Committee have rescheduled this popular event with the Hilton Garden Inn and the “Goodwill Bags” for the 100 Years of Fashion Show, for Friday, August 21, 2020

 

If you have already paid for this event we will honor any and all refund requests.  While we hope that you can join us in August, we understand that some will be unable to do so.  With that in mind, please email us at solanolibraryfoundation@gmail.com with either a “Yes, I’ll join you for the new date”, or “Please issue a refund”.

 

We thank you all for your understanding and look forward to seeing you very soon.

 

Sincerely,

 

Beth Shedden, President

Solano County Library Foundation and

 

Josette Lacey, Chair

Women’s History Month Luncheon Committee

Pati Navalta, author and anti-gun violence advocate is the 2019 Woman of the Year

In 2017, Navalta created the Robby Poblete Foundation in honor of her son, Robby, who was killed by gun violence in Vallejo in 2014. The nonprofit’s mission is to reduce gun violence through its gun buyback program, and transform the weapons into instruments of hope and opportunity through its art and vocational programs. In just under two years, the foundation has succeeded in getting nearly 1,000 firearms out of circulation, launched its Art of Peace program, which transforms the guns into art, in five cities, and has distributed more than $20,000 in apprenticeship scholarships to people from at-risk and high-risk populations.
