Edgewood Center's Hope Ball

 

 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein was honored Oct. 24 at the Edgewood Center for Children and Families Hope Ball.

And as she stood at the podium of the ballroom at the Fairmont Hotel in front of the sold-out crowd, she sounded positively gubernatorial.

This was prior to last week’s AP report titled, Feinstein Still Pondering Run for Governor.

SF Opera Opening-night Gala

 

 

“New” was the zeitgeist in play Friday at the Opera Ball celebrating the 87th season opener of the San Francisco Opera.

New Music Director, Nicola Luisotti. New gala format. New production of Verdi’s Il Trovatore. A new, new economy in which to operate. As well as “new media,” embodied by the glamorous presence of Arianna Huffington.

And a sellout crowd of over a thousand gala guests, ably guided by Opera Ball co-chairwomen Teresa Meaderis and Adrianna Pope Sullivan, enthusiastically showed their support for this beloved and world-renowned company.

The Band Played on @ SF Symphony Opening Night Gala

Music, it is said, hath charms to soothe the savage breast.

And maestro Michael Tilson Thomas and his band, starring piano virtuoso Lang Lang, masterfully hit their notes last night in Davies Symphony Hall during a sold-out, glittery opening-night gala that heralded the 98th season of the San Francisco Symphony.

Let’s face it, most of this past year has been a bit of a bummer. At last year’s opener, few had yet to grasp the economic troubles we’d witness during the past 365 days. The fallout from Wall Street had yet to sink in (or rather, sink down); a new president waited in the wings as the election neared.

Party Animals at The Zoo

To describe the past year at the San Francisco Zoo as Annus horribilis, would be an understatement. But last week, some 500 Zoological Society members were out in force at the annual ZooFest fundraiser.

15 Minutes at the Mid-Winter Gala

There was 15 minutes of fame (and fond reminiscences) for the Old Economy on Saturday out at the de Young Museum during the Mid-Winter Gala.
