Reach for the Stars Gala

What a wonderful evening! The 2018 Reach for the Stars gala was a roaring success, raising over $191k for Side by Side and the youth that we serve in four Bay Area counties.

With swinging entertainment that satisfied all of the senses, including delectable food and bootleg libations, an enchanting Dominican private estate was the perfect backdrop for a night of 1920s glamour and giving back. Flappers and swells were in full attendance dancing the night away and the energy in the crowd was palpable.

Check out photos from the event on Drew Altizer’s site here, as well as guest-snapped photos here.
