The evening kicks off in an outdoor tent with a feast of appetizers expertly prepared under the guidance of Culinary Host Heidi Insalata Krahling by chefs from 25 of the Bay Area’s best restaurants. Appetizers will be accompanied by wine pourings from an impressive lineup of 25 elite wineries from California’s finest growing regions. Other libations include microbrewed beer, champagne, martinis and more! Guests will also get the pleasure of bidding on hundreds of silent auction items while mingling with friends.
After dinner in the tent, guests will be welcomed into the elegantly decorated dining room for dessert while enjoying the evening’s fabulous live entertainment hosted by Honorary Chairman Huey Lewis and Master of Ceremonies Bud E. Luv. The live program is highlighted by a performance by the people Lifehouse serves and an exciting, fast-paced live auction. Past live auctions have featured such exciting items as luxury trips, rare bottles of wine and entertainment memorabilia signed by Huey Lewis, Robin Williams, Carlos Santana, George Lucas and The Doobie Brothers.
And if that wasn’t enough…
