About Bill Blankenburg
Last fall Bill Blankenburg and his wife, Pat, took a riverboat cruise up the Danube from Bucharest. While half of his fellow passengers were felled by gastric turmoil, Blankenburg chatted up the crew, one of whom resembled women painted by Vermeer.
Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund
For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
