The Gala Needs Your Help!

The gala & auction is a great community-building event. We need the support from the entire community in the form of volunteer time, auction donations of items and experiences, and sponsorships. Whether you’re able to chair a committee, write copy, design materials, help set up the day of the event or volunteer to sell raffle tickets one morning during drop-off, there are jobs of all sizes to make the event a continued success. Please consider being one of our auction volunteers. Simply email us at and we’ll find the perfect role for you.

We need an assortment of items that can be auctioned off at the benefit. Donations from the community make up the majority and often the best of our auction items. Here are some donation suggestions to help you get started:

Host an event/party: The community loves a party. It can be something as intimate as a 10-person tasting at your home or as a big as a dance or bowling event. Get creative! Tickets to the parties will be included in the online auction, with funds going directly to (Tickets to these parties are popular and sell out quickly!)  

Organize a unique experience: Scavenger hunt; Cooking/Dining with a popular chef; Behind-the-scenes tour; Fun run; Make-up or stylist session

Offer a stay in a vacation home: Tahoe, Bolinas, Napa, Sonoma, Hawaii, Colorado, or beyond!

Share a special skill: Teach a group (adults or students) how to dance, fly-fish, cook, hit a line drive, knit, etc.
