Please browse our web site and familiarize yourself with our Lodge. Our Lodge is located in Gilroy, California, The Garlic Capital of the World and the Home of the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Like other Lodges throughout the United States, we are committed to uphold the principles and supporting the goals of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE). The principles of our Order are: Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity.
With the principles of our Order, our Lodge and Members have dedicated themselves to help the mentally and physically challenged children within the California-Hawaii Elks Association (CHEA). Through CHEA, we are able to offer Screening for pre-school children and offer physical aid to children, that for some reason, fall through the cracks. Through our Lodge functions, we offer 6 scholarship each year to graduating High School Students in Gilroy, San Martin and Morgan Hill. Additionally, our Lodge receives funding from the Elks National Foundation (ENF) so we can support programs like The Elks National Hoop Shoot Program, The Elks National Soccer Shoot-out, drug awareness programs.
