A Growing Tradition

For the past nine summers a group of fun-loving, wine-drinking, cigar-smoking, bocce enthusiasts of all levels have gathered at Campo di Bocce in Los Gatos for friendly competition, dinner, drinks, games, auctions, and shenanigans of all kinds in the name of a good cause.

Some are serious about bocce, but all are serious about fun and helping Catholic Charities raise funds for poverty alleviation right here in Santa Clara County.

So brush up on a few Italian words (can you say 'pallino'?) and become part of the growing tradition that has helped raise critical funds to break the cycle of poverty.

Campo di Bocce

Nestled in the heart of Los Gatos, Campo di Bocce features superb traditional Italian cuisine as well as world-class bocce. Enjoy the beautiful outdoor patio where you can wine and dine on traditional Italian cuisine, relax with friends and, of course, play a little bocce.

The game and sport of bocce has survived the ages. Evolving from its earliest known origins in Egypt circa 5200 B.C. to its current place today among players spanning the globe, bocce truly is a sport for the masses.



Who Benefits?

The funds raised at the annual bocce tournament support over 30 programs Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County provides to over 40,000 individuals and families of all cultures and beliefs, struggling to overcome poverty. 

These programs help move people from poverty to self-sufficiency by providing supportive housing services, education, employment, and older adult and behavioral health services for the poor and marginalized, right here in our community.
