“A Taste of TEL HI” is the popular community fundraiser on behalf of Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center, the nonprofit organization which provides services to 100,000-plus in San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill community. Tickets are on sale for this year’s 126th anniversary event at the prestigious Nob Hill host venue, The Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco, 600 Stockton St., on Friday, May 20, 2016 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Guests will enjoy an outstanding epicurean treat, a three-course meal prepared by The Ritz-Carlton’s award-winning Executive Chef, Luis Lujan, paired with local wines from Napa and Sonoma: The Winery SF, Mills Wine Group, and JCB Sparkling Wine by Jean-Charles Boisset.
Both the evening’s silent and the live auction offer a range of exclusive Bay Area experiences, objects and unique services. Silent auction items are a treasure trove of finds, with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting TEL HI. Browse among dozens of prizes such as Disneyland Parkhopper tickets for four with an overnight stay, a vacation at a three bedroom house at beautiful Donner Lake, premium lower box seats at AT&T Park for the SF Giants, a guided North Beach café crawl, and a Mendocino twosome escape including golf at Little River Inn and dinner at Raven’s Restaurant at Stanford Inn.
The live auction is a fast-paced, spirited event of paddle-raising excitement. Up for grabs are a dinner for six at San Francisco’s stylish, contemporary restaurant Twenty Five Lusk, a private cooking party for 12 with the legendary Mary Risley, Golden State Warriors tickets for three with floor level seating plus autographed memorabilia and much more.
This year’s Community Chair for “A Taste of TEL HI” is Jack F. Bair, Executive Vice President and General Counsel for the beloved home team, the San Francisco Giants.
