We would like to thank everyone who attended and supported our 12th Annual A Night for Our Children Gala on Thursday, June 19th, 2014 at Espace.
The evening was hosted by Sebastian Clarke of Rago Arts and Auction Center. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a fabulous silent auction, a delicious buffet dinner and were treated to the sounds of the very talented DJ-XRAY.
A special presentation by Robert Christopher Lugo - former group member of the Calvary Hospital teen program and camp, currently a junior facilitator - was the highlight of the evening.
Our live auction included a Napa Valley Getaway for two guests at the Calistoga Ranch luxury resort; Dinner for 4 at the most exclusive reservation in town, Rao's; Two tickets to Saturday Night live during the 2014 season; Jeter Farewell Party where two guests will rub shoulders with Derek Jeter as he hangs up his cap and celebrates an unmatched career with the New York Yankees; and a 25-person cocktail reception prepared by the famous party planner, Larry Scott.
