The evening is capped by a live auction, presided over by auctioneer Chad Carvey. Previous prizes have included unique experiences like a one-of-a-kind trip to Washington DC, a private performance in your home and a choose-your-own San Francisco Bay Area theater package of five shows at any theater company.

This annual sold-out event attracts over 100 prominent community members, corporate professionals and philanthropic leaders from throughout the Bay Area. This year's spring fundraiser is chaired by Susan Holdstein, Lori Lerner, Stacy Scott, Fred and Kathleen Taylor and Beth Wintersteen.
