On behalf of Sandpipers, thank you for your support in making our 84th year such a tremendous success. Your donations to our philanthropic programs and fundraising events, combined with the efforts of our dedicated volunteer members, enabled us to change the lives of those less fortunate living in the South Bay.
Together we clothed less fortunate youth heading back to school, supplied gifts for foster children, brought holiday cheer to underprivileged families, awarded college scholarships to well deserving local students, awarded grants to local nonprofits and so much more. In total, Sandpipers distributed approximately
$500,000 and touched more than 25,000 lives. It is truly amazing to see what a community can do when it comes together to support those less fortunate.

The Holiday Homes Tour is one of Sandpipers’ largest fundraising events of the year that annually attracts more than 2,000 patrons, and garners tremendous support from numerous local businesses and community partners. Celebrate the season by taking a tour of four distinctive South Bay homes exquisitely decorated for the holidays. The homes offer a variety of styles that will generate unique decorating ideas for you to try in your own home.
In addition, we are excited to be revitalizing and rebranding our legacy Boutique and Café as the Sandpipers Holiday Market—focusing on local bites, artisan gifts for the season and expanding the shopping experience with holiday entertainment, including a special visit from Santa Claus on Sunday, December 6 from 11am-1pm.
