Brayton Purcell is proud to sponsor the 15th Annual Art with a Heart 2008 Gala Auction benefiting the Ritter Center. The Ritter Center, also known as the "Marin Safety Net," provides services to the homeless, the working poor and other at-risk populations living in Marin County.
At this gala event, there will be not one but two auctions! The first will be held during cocktails and hors d'oeuvres from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Featured items to be auctioned off include framed art as well as merchandise and services from local merchants. This will be followed by a delicious three-course meal catered by Insalata's. During the dinner, radio personality Gil Gross of KGO AM 810 will host a short program. Then, while continuing to enjoy the wonderful food from Insalata's, you will be able to join in the lively dinner auction featuring such exciting items as art from local Marin artists, the use of a luxury Squaw Valley condo during Marin's Ski Week, a guitar used in studio and belonging to Bob Weir, and much, much more. At 9:30 p.m., while the night is still young, dance under the stars to the Jesse Bradman Band playing rock classics and other tunes.
The event will be held in a beautiful, outdoor courtyard located at St. Vincent's School for Boys, 1 St. Vincent Drive, San Rafael, California, on May 17 from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Come join the fun! Purchase tickets online and dance the night away.
The Ritter Center -- Marin County's Safety Net
Founded in 1980, the Ritter Center has faithfully served the Marin community not only as a way for the homeless to re-enter society, but also as a safety net for the working poor and other populations at risk. The services they provide include a day service center for the homeless, client services such as emergency food and financial assistance, health services and seasonal programs. They run the largest food pantry in Marin serving over 1,000 people a month, one-third of which are children.
