The Contra Costa County Give 22 reception was held on September 8th at the Pyramid Ale House in Walnut Creek. It provided a chance for K to College to present awards to some of their esteemed Contra Costa County supporters: Senator Mark Desaulnier, Assemblymember Susan Bonilla and Supervisor John Gioia. It additionally provided an excellent opportunity to provide some well-deserved recognition to our local volunteers: Chuck Carpenter, Cathy McRoberts, Oakley Mayor Jim Frazier, Jim Donnelly and too many more to mention. Speakers included Executive Director Benito Delgado-Olson, Board Chair Don Solem, Give Something Back’s President Mike Hannigan and the Chair of the ALCOSTA Chapter of the California Teachers Association Charmaine Kawaguchi. KICU TV36 and KTVU.com co-hosted the event to highlight our upcoming partnership.
