First Annual Spaghetti Feed


On May 13th, the Gavilan College Women's Volleyball Team held its first annual fundraising dinner at Hecker Pass Winery in Gilroy.  The event was put on as a class project to help the team raise funds for the upcoming 2011 season.  Special thanks to Gavilan College Communications Instructor Shelley Giacalone for allowing her students to take on this project. Huge thanks to Project Leader Mikey Labuguen and his group "The Benchwarmers," for running an amazing night in which we were able to raise over $4000. 

Most of all, the Gavilan College Women's Volleyball Program would also like to thank all of the sponsors and attendees for making the night a huge success.  We look forward to seeing you all again next year!!!
