Side by Side celebrated the youth we serve ultralounge-style on Saturday, September 17, 2022. Raising over $270,000, the Reach for the Stars Gala featured fabulous club music and entertainment, open-air dining, and signature cocktails. Hosted by California Senator Mike McGuire on a private San Rafael estate raised critically funds needed to continue Side by Side’s behavioral and mental health services for nearly 2,000 young people and their families in Marin, Sonoma, Napa, and Alameda counties.
