Final 2017 Women’s Club Meeting

Bocce Ball and Potluck Dinner: June 20, The Crowley Home Court

Sacred Heart Women’s Club will hold its last regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, JUNE 20 before we break for the month of July. Join us for a tasty potluck dinner, fun and Bocce at the home of Nancy & Jerry Crowley: 5160 Betlo Court, San Jose. Closest major intersection is Quito & Bucknall Roads.

Bocce is an easy game to learn – no previous experience needed. With a little Vino, everyone is a pro! A cheering/or good-natured heckling section is always welcome. The Women’s Club will provide the main entrée for everyone. The rest of the meal is potluck (Appetizers, Salads, Desserts & Beverages). The fun begins at 6pm.
To help us better plan the food, please RSVP to Brenda Hart Vasquez at brendahart@me.com or 510-305-3161.

Tutti Sono Benvenuti!

What We Do

The Women’s Club provides an opportunity for us to come together in a social setting through a variety of activities: Bunco game nights; a weekly women’s walking group; Bocce Ball & potluck evening; Blind wine & cheese tasting; Christmas Holiday Cookie and White Elephant Gift Exchange; Speakers. Together, we participate in projects that support our parish and community: Parish Carnival and the Annual Holly Days Artisan Faire; Lenten Soup Supper program; Meals for the Men’s Rotating Shelter; and the Saratoga Relay for Life Program.

The Holly Days Artisan Faire in November, hosted by the Women’s Club, had over 70 local artisans featuring handmade holiday and year-round gifts, crafts, jewelry, food and more. The Faire also features Cookies & Photo with Santa and The Artisan Café serving lunch and snacks. The Faire is our major annual fundraiser. Proceeds from this popular community event:

  • Provide scholarships to graduating 8th grade School & Faith Formation young women.
  • Fulfill a parish need identified by Fr. Gary and Parish Staff. 2015 proceeds purchased a new golf cart for transporting supplies and parishioners. Use of 2016 proceeds is still to be deteremined.
  • With an eye to the future, the Women’s Club has committed to contributing 10% of net proceeds to the Sacred Heart of Saratoga Endowment.
