Thank you to all the Rotarians who helped with Parking, Security, B-Q, Food Prep, and Auction Support at this wonderful charity event!
Former Oakland Raiders Head Coach, Pro Football Hall of Famer, and Emmy Award Winner John Madden has co-hosted the event for many years and is now retiring from the Battle of the Bay Charity Bocce. We will be forever thankful for his contributions. The former San Francisco 49ers Head Coach, University of California – Berkeley Head Coach, and current NFL Network broadcaster Steve Mariucci hosted the Annual “Battle of the Bay” Charity Bocce Tournament with Tom Albanese at the beautiful Campo di Bocce facility in Los Gatos, California.
Since its’ inception back in 1999, this event has raised over $8 million for local and national charities. In recent years, the beneficiaries have been: Peninsula Boys & Girls Club, Mariucci Family Foundation, Diabetic Youth Foundation, Easter Seals Kaleidoscope, Northern California Special Olympics, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, local High School Football Programs and more.
This exclusive high-level charity mixer brings together professional athletes, celebrities, dignitaries, and business leaders for a fun day of bocce, world-class wines, and Campo di Bocce’s signature Italian cuisine. Not to mention, this event is the home of top-tier networking opportunities and media coverage. This is a great environment and great venue to have fun and connect with respected Bay Area affiliates and top sports figures.
The “Battle of the Bay” tournament has provided excitement for the Northern California region and continues to grow in reputation. Thank you for visiting our page and we look forward to your involvement with this year’s festivities.
Enjoy a few photos provided by Eric Eberle who helped organize Rotarian volunteers.  Great job Eric!

“For Los Gatos Rotarians, Service and Fellowship are two intertwining themes that drive much of what our club does. Our members give what they can even blood. 
 We partner with other Rotary clubs. We collected hundreds of shoes that will be delivered to Africa, South America and the Caribbean.
