This year, the Gilroy office aims to raise $3,600, said Morris. Alongside other Northern California Coldwell Bankers, the office raised $105,000 for 10 Northern California chapters in 2010.
The event will also include live guitar music by the local Jeff Strametz, wine tasting, and a raffle replete with prizes for both children and adults.
