February 6, 2010 - Treasure Island, San Francisco
This evening is really two events in one, all in the unique setting of Treasure Island.  The Gourmet Food & Wine Tasting features over 60 Bay Area restaurants and wineries, while the more intimate Winemaker Dinner includes four courses, with each course prepared by two different award-winning chefs. 

May 15, 2010 - Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards, Windsor
The graceful and picturesque croquet lawns of Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards are the backdrop for an exquisite afternoon in wine country. Hundreds of wine and food enthusiasts don their "croquet whites" at this spring ritual.   

June 5, 2010 - Saint Mary's College, Moraga
A new fundraiser for our chapter that will be fun for the whole family.  Dust off your walking shoes.... 

October, 2010 - Aquatic Park, San Francisco
Thanks to all who raised $28,000 during our 2009 event!
Three events in one - all hosted by the San Francisco Police Department to raise money for our chapter!  Enjoy breakfast or lunch with Cops and Coffee; jump in San Francisco Bay during the Plunge in the Bay; or accept the challenge of the Cable Car Pull, all in the picturesque location of Aquatic Park.  During the Cable Car Pull teams of four compete against each other to see who can pull a cable car the fastest over a distance of 200 feet.  It's not too early to form your team, start to "bulk up" and be ready to be cheered on by a crowd of supporters, along with wish kids and their families. 

November, 2010 - Tehama Golf & Country Club, Carmel
The 2009 Gala raised over $545,000 in cash and in-kind donations!  We thank the hard-working Events Committee for their commitment to our mission and making this event such an outstanding success. Cocktails on the terrace, a gourmet dinner, world class entertainment and an auction offering one-of-a-kind travel, entertainment and luxury items mak this an evening not to be missed!  Watch here for details on the 2010 event.
