Opening Night Gala
Patrons’ Dinner

The Patrons’ Dinner draws an impressive crowd of San Francisco’s business and philanthropic leaders and style icons—all gathered together under an exquisitely decorated tented pavilion. Loge or Main floor seating is yours at the Opening Night Gala concert, featuring Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the San Francisco Symphony with legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Continue the evening at the After-Party, dance the night away while enjoying signature cocktails, special surprises and delicious samplings form the Bay Area’s finest restaurants.
