After devoting many years to several non-profit organizations and as a past owner of a successful event planning business, Kelly Dippel formed Silicon Valley Cares in 2009 because she wanted to touch the lives of many people within the community who were struggling. Kelly organized a group of dynamic and powerful women within Silicon Valley to join her organization and help plan the first ever, Silicon Valley Broomstick Ball in October 2010. Silicon Valley Cares mission is to raise funds for non-profit agencies and organizations benefiting children, teens, homeless, as well as crisis situations within the Santa Clara County.
After nine years of giving back, it is time to take a break from the Broomstick Ball, the main event in which Silicon Valley Cares focused.
If you are a non-profit residing within Santa Clara County with a focus on Children, Teens, Homelessness or Animals, please feel free to reach out to our group with volunteer opportunities or fundraiser events by posting on our Facebook page.
