Best of the Bay
Published on July 14, 2011
Good food, good music, and good people came together once again for our 11th annual Best of the Bay Fundraiser. After more then a month of preparation the big event finally took place on June 30th. We spent two long days setting up the venue at the Metreon…With the help of co-hosts San Francisco Magazine, Dominic Phillips Event Marketing and our twenty-one sponsors we pulled together another successful event.
There were fourty-four of San Francisco’s finest Restaurants featured at the event, three sweet treat specialty shops, and seventeen different beverage venders. Seven different DJs and artists played throughout the night, insuring that there was never a dull moment.
Family House held a Silent Auction at the event with 110 items for guests to bid on, of which 100% of the proceeds went directly to Family House. The items ranged from stunning jewelry to luxurious bottle of wines, weekend getaways, and gift certificates Once again our volunteers stepped it up, with almost 200 individuals showing up over the course of the event to help make sure everything ran smoothly.
2,000 individuals came out the night of the 30th to make the Best of the Bay a huge success.
Its been two weeks since the event took place and we finally got all the auction items and thank you letters sent out. The Best of the Bay is one of the largest events Family House participates in, but we couldn’t do it alone.
So a big thanks must go out to our Sponsors, our hosts at San Francisco Magazine, our Volunteers, all of the Vendors, Restaurants, and Artisits who participated in the event…and of course all of the Individuals who purchased a raffle ticket, bid on an auction item, or just came out to support Family House and enjoy the event. The event wouldn’t have been the same without any of you.
So THANK YOU ALL for making our 11th Annual Best of the Bay a Night to Remember…
And until next year keep enjoying good food, good drinks, and good company!
