The Danville/Sycamore Valley has been serving the local East Bay communities for 30 years.  The Blackhawk Food, Wine, and Film Festival is our only fundraiser and we use 100% of the funds raised to help the local and international community.  The Festival has become an East Bay tradition with over 500 attendees, 12-14 local restaurants, 12-14 regional wineries, and entertainment.  Over the past few years, we’ve used the monies raised at the event to do the following:

  • Gave over $25,000 to local fire victims in Northern California
  • Support Veterans through Valor Games, Sentinels of Freedom and East Bay Stand Down.
  • Improve Wellness Resources through assisting in bringing a Discovery Counseling Center annex in San Ramon.
  • Assist local organizations dedicated to families and the developmentally challenged through helping with projects (i.e. iCanBike [teach youth to ride bikes], Planter Boxes, Classroom Painting) and funding for Down Syndrome Connection, Ability Now, and Sunflower Hill Garden.
  • Provide resources to our local schools to support our Youth.
  • Assist the elderly through the Rotary Home Team
  • International Projects from Water/Sanitation to Education in India, Kenya, Honduras, and Guatemala.

Goal:  $75,000

  • Establish a Wellness Corner that would be a one stop online location for local individuals and families to get information about area wellness resources
  • Support our Current Local Organizations that Help Families such as Shepard’s Gate, Agape Village, Down Syndrome Connection and much more
  • Further support for Veterans through East Bay Stand Down and Valor Games.
  • Work towards the establishment of an online curriculum for teachers in Kenya
