Thank you to our Canal neighbors and friends who came out for our 16th Holiday Bridge Lighting Party on Sunday. The VOC is happy to make this event our holiday gift to the Canal Community. It was a beautiful evening and a great opportunity for neighbors to say hello over drinks and food provide by the VOC and the community.
The VOC continues to support those making a difference in the Venice community. As our holiday gift, we are again donating generously to Regina and Steve Weller's Homeless Task Force.
The community was saddened to hear of the passing of Steve last September, and we're grateful for Regina's continued work as a Homeless Crisis Counselor.
The Homeless Task Force has an unmatched record in providing supportive services to those seeking help. We encourage you to visit their website should you wish to donate or learn more:
The "X's and O's" bridge was designed and built by Catherine Holliss and Blake Wassenaar. Her supporting crew were Susan Painter, Connie Forrest, Lucy Dehnert, Maura Tierney, and Wyeth Holliss Sander. The Party organizer was Amy Gorton assisted by Paul Davis, Art Marcum, Darryl DuFay, and Eric Holloway.
The bridge is lit from 4:30 - 11:00 pm until January 1st!
Enjoy the holidays!
