It’s an evening with something for everyone, from cocktails and hors d’oeuvres to our popular silent auction to an elegant formal dinner and exciting live auction, followed by a concert from the San Francisco Opera Adler Fellows and a special performance by composer Jake Heggie. If you don’t want the magic to end there, join us for a DJ after-party and dancing. Black-tie attire is preferred; a wonderful time is guaranteed.
