CSA holds gala

The Community Services Agency is hosting its annual spring gala on June 10 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. The fundraiser benefits programs for local disadvantaged and elderly people, and runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

This year's gala theme is "Imagine," a tie-in to Silicon Valley's innovation and creativity, and offers food, beer, and wine-tasting, musical entertainment, and a silent and live auction.

The Community Service Agency has been providing social services for Mountain View, Los Altos and Los Altos Hills residents since 1957. The nonprofit offers emergency assistance with food and financial aid, senior citizen assistance, care for the homeless and gifts for disadvantaged families during the holidays. According to Executive Director Tom Myers, the agency aided over 6,000 people last year through its programs and services. More information on the Community Service Agency and the spring gala is at  

Tickets cost $115. Donation opportunities are also available through the event's website, and potential sponsors can contact Development Director Jim Boin at or (650) 968 - 0836 x115.

Mariposa Park opening day

City officials will hold a dedication ceremony for Mariposa Park on Saturday, June 9, beginning at 10 a.m. The ribbon-cutting and a community photograph will follow the dedication at 10:15 a.m., after which the park will be open to the public. There will be refreshments, and free games and crafts for children.

The park has a butterfly theme, a nod to its name — mariposa is Spanish for butterfly. It was approved in September 2010, and construction began approximately one year ago.

Located between the west end of Dana Street and Mariposa Avenue, the ceremony will take place at 305 Mariposa Ave.
