On May 15, the nonprofit youth center, will host its biggest event of the year—the Venue-A-Thon, in its second year.
The telethon hopes to raise money for the organization with the help of television, the public-access TV station that operates near the high school.
The fundraiser, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., will include one of the largest youth-only talent shows in Los Gatos. The event is crucial to the continued operation of the center and the public access television station, since they rely on public donations to stay open.
For more than 20 years, has offered local youth, ages 13-19, a safe and fun place to hang out and relax. According to its website, the organization serves more than 300 teens who enjoy activities free of charge, including Saturday night concerts or club nights.
The organization is run by teens and volunteer adults with Executive Director Mike Loya, who has worked with the program for many years.
