Food & beverage

Most events also include some kind of reception(s). Vendors to provide beverages and hors d'oeuvres or desserts are always needed. Although we have a number of generous ongoing donors, we also don't wish to overtap each resource and need to constantly add new ones. Volunteers are needed to help in recruiting food, wine and other beverage vendors.

The Silent Auction committee solicits items for silent and sometimes live auctions. Most events include some kind of auction. Auction items can be collected on a year-round basis. Occasionally on-line auctions may also be held, especially if items do not bring minimum bids at the live auction or are not suited for the live auction. 

media sponsorships/pr


Ken Henderson, Executive Director, 415-931-2515 


We are in constant search of media sponsorship and contacts for print, web and television. Media sponsorships save greatly in advertising costs, helping to maximize funds distributed to beneficiary agencies. 

event production


We need people with theater resources to assist with finding theatrical resources such as costumes, make-up artists, hair stylist, etc. People with stage crew experience are also sometimes needed.
