The Butter Paddle Gift Shop, presently located in the heart of downtown Los Gatos, California, is the perfect place to buy that special gift. The Butter Paddle is the fund-raising arm of the EMQ Auxiliary, which has served the needs of local children in need since 1934. The Auxiliary started by raising money through rummage sales and fashion shows. The proceeds from these events provided household items for the children’s residence. Items such as drapes, carpeting and even a washing machine so children could have clean socks every day were donated!
