West Valley Community Services is proud to present the 6th Annual Chefs of Compassion: Cooking for a Cause on Friday, September 16th, 2016 in the Hahn Auditorium at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View!

The Chefs of Compassion: Cooking for a Cause Dinner is a unique dining event that challenges well-known chefs in Silicon Valley to prepare a four-course dinner inspired by ingredients found solely in West Valley Community Services' food pantry.

For the Judges' Choice award, each course will be judged for taste, presentation, and creativity by a panel of other well-known chefs.  You and other attendees will cast votes for the Popular Choice award winner!

Bid on dozens of unique silent auction items generously donated by businesses and individuals.

Dorothy Stow

Dorothy has been an illustrious and distinguished citizen of Cupertino for the past 33 years.  Dorothy's involvement in West Valley Community Services started in 1997, when it was still known as Cupertino Community Services.  Dorothy served as a Board Member and Board Chair for several years and succeeded in recruiting Board Members who are still with our organization.  Dorothy was a founding member of the Cupertino Community Services endowment, and she was instrumental in the planning and fundraising for the Vista Village housing facility.  Dorothy has received numerous awards acknowledging her dedication and commitment to community well being.  Dorothy, her husband, Darryl Stow, and daughter, Denise, continue to support WVCS as major donors and volunteer to this day.  Dorothy and Darryl's legacy will remain with West Valley Community Services in perpetuity.

Kay Lohmiller

Kay is an innate part of the history and fabric of West Valley Community Services.  Born in San Francisco, Kay and her husband, Dick, moved to Cupertino in 1967.  A winner of several  community-wide volunteer awards, Kay has volunteered and fundraised for various causes all of her life.  Having been a member of the Inner Wheel Club of Cupertino for the past 26 years, Kay has also served as President and  co-President for the past 5 years.  Kay first volunteered with Cupertino Community Services (the former WVCS), in the Spring of 1992, to do a favor for a friend and help with the annual Bar-be-que Roundup auction.  She went on to chair the auction for the next 15 years.  Later, as project manager, Kay's husband, Dick Lohmiller, was instrumental in the construction of the West Valley Community Services's offices and the Vista Village housing.  Kay and Dick's contribution to WVCS is indelible.
