Experience the Golden Age of Hollywood! Join us for an evening of glamour, al fresco dining, and libations in support of our youth. Hosted by California Senator Mike McGuire, our signature gala promises to strike a note of elegance and whimsy while raising critically needed funds for Side by Side’s behavioral and mental health programs across the Bay Area.
