Big Game Big Give@Atherton,Calif.(Sat.,Feb.6th,2016)
This year’s 7th Annual Gala for “Big Game Big Give” (www.GivingBack.org), was held at a spectacular Mansion for the Give Back Fund. Guests and Celebrities arrived and walked the red carpet starting at 6:30 p.m. and highlights included Joe Montana, Matt Williams and Jay Leno strutting their stuff for media and guests. Our team was given a spectacular welcome to join the party as guests inside the elegant mansion and fabulous garden. It was the weekend of the world’s biggest stage and this gala provided it all in conjunction with the Super Bowl weekend! At the front entrance we encountered “Seal Rock,” a talented seal performing amazing tricks for the arriving guests. This was a true California experience as we walked through specialty themed rooms: Beverly Hills, Silicon Valley, The Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Central Valley and Wine Country. The theme continued to the backyard with San Francisco displayed in front of our eyes with all the landmarks of the city on display as well as a draft table. To top it off, we were also in for a treat with the Palm Springs theme with decadent desserts with specialty coffees and teas. The variety of food experience that was a different experience in each of the themed rooms was supervised by culinary genius Chef Roland Passol. This indoor and outdoor event was held in this perfect venue was playful in theme with having guests’ dress codes being either Suits or Football Uniforms for Men. Female guests were encouraged to sport a Cocktail Attire. The schedule was as follows:
6:30pm- Red Carpet arrivals begin – Gourmet food and drinks featuring offerings from San Francisco celebrity Chefs and Mixologists
8:00pm – Jay Leno and Live Auction on Main Stage, including the chance to catch a pass thrown by Joe Montana
