I was browsing through this Bay Area high society directory mainly for a good laugh. And there were plenty. Here's one favorite:
April 5 - The 5th Annual Fur BallWhat would a proper fund raising ball be without animal psychics?! There were also plenty of $2,500 croquet picnics and celebrity pool tosses for charity. But I was surprised to find a couple events that I really want to go to as well:
"True-Blue Companion" is the theme of this black-tie gala. The evening includes food and wine, a "blue carpet," animal psychics, artists, live music and live and silent auctions. $250.
March 10 - Bouquets to Art Opening GalaYou just know that Dede will be at this one. I think I'll skip the gala but go the next day for the flower displays. And there's one event that is a can't miss this year:
Dine, dance, and be the fist to see Bouquets to Art, an event where designers re-create art with flowers at the de Young Museum. $125-200.
May 31 - Black and White BallI need to start shopping and coordination now for that one. Consider my social calendar officially marked!
Seven Civic Center blocks get the full party treatment for the nation's biggest black-tie fund raiser. A wide array of musical acts and fabulous food and drink will keep more than 10,000 black-and-white-clad patrons entertained into the wee hours.
