Reach for the Stars Gala

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 on a private San Rafael estate, Side by Side’s Reach for the Stars Gala promises to strike a note of elegance and whimsy while raising critically needed funds to continue our behavioral and mental health services for nearly 2,000 young people and their families in Marin, Sonoma, Alameda and Napa.
