The Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center celebrated the generous donation from the David Bohnett Foundation of upgraded computers for the Cyber Center. While over sixty people came to party, the Cyber Center continued to be utilized by its patrons. Thanks to Board Emeritus, Greg Belaus and his team, for setting up the new computers and ongoing upkeep.
It was also an artist reception for Troy Sims who sold five of his pieces, half the proceeds donated to the DeFrank Center: thank you. When he was showing his art to Susan Ellenberg, School Board member for SJUSD, she bought one of his pieces.
Special thank you to Rick Bernard, Vice President for Community Outreach for coordinating a generous donation of food from Whole Foods on The Alameda. Other thank you's go to the Library Committee for coordinating the event and James Baxter's, Vice President, last minute touches to making the event an elegant occasion.
At the March 24th Board of Supervisors meeting, Supervisor Ken Yeager introduced a proposal creating an Office of LGBTQ Affairs for Santa Clara County.
