Volunteering at the Promenades...
We'd love your help with our Thursday Promenades. We need Ambassadors to be out and about at several locations to answer questions (When do the bands start? Which bands are playing? Where are the restrooms? etc) and help to help ensure that the event goes smoothly.

The Gala
Sunday, September 26 at La Estancia Estate, Los Gatos
featuring vocalist Dr. Kim Nalley
Dr. Kim Nalley has been awarded "Most Influential African American in the Bay Area" in 2005 and "Best Jazz Group" in 2013. She is already being called "legendary" and a "San Francisco institution". You will be awed by her aura of a diva from a by-gone era with vocal projection that can whisper a balladm, yet is capable of filling a room with no microphone. She has been compared to all the greats, but in the end, it's Kim Nalley and no one else - an unforced instrument with clarity and jazzy musicality, effortlessly delivered, and a sense of humor to boot.

PGE Business Incentive Programs
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and other utilities were directed by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) in 2020 to conduct rotating power outages to relieve strain on the power grid during a statewide heatwave. 
Rotating outages are possible again in 2021 and we want all our customers to be prepared. Generous incentives from programs like the Base Interruptible Program are available for customers who can reduce their electric load during times of high grid stress and other emergencies.
  • Base Interruptible Program: PG&E’s Base Interruptible Program (BIP) pays you to reduce your electricity consumption to a predetermined level when energy supplies are short.
  • Emergency Load Reduction Program: PG&E’s Emergency Load Reduction Program (ELRP) offers financial incentives for participants to reduce their energy use during times of high grid stress and emergencies, with the goal of avoiding rotating outages while minimizing costs to customers.
COVID Vaccines
El Camino Health offers COVID vaccines at several mobile, walk-in clinics, as well as at their facilities.
