We hosted an intimate garden party with Brett Dennen in the beautiful backyard of a Piedmont Julia Morgan home. In addition to the extraordinary music, guests enjoyed fine wine and summer beverages, home-made and locally catered delectables, and a silent and live auction with special and unique items. Peter Finch of KFOG’s Morning Show was Master of Ceremonies. Megan Slankard and Gyasi Parker-Ross were opening.

Tickets were $100 per person. A limited number of $250 and $500 VIP packages were available. $250 ticket includes VIP seating, a photo opportunity and a gift basket. $500 ticket additionally includes an exclusive pre-party with Brett.

We are deeply grateful to our wonderful community for making this event possible, including the following:

Kathy Hull & Bill Gisvold for the use of their lovely garden.
Staci Sambol & Ray Buetens of Slub Design.
And a very special thank you to our Benefit Concert Chair, Kristin Hull, without whom
this event could not be.
