It's probably too late to get tickets for this, but the first Edgewood Hope Ball will be taking place tonight at San Francisco's City Hall from 5:30-11:30. Edgewood Center for Children and Families is a well-respected organization that helps children and families in crises. It's a full service event with pre-party, cocktails, silent auction, dinner, live auction and dancing.
Expect some great photos from this event in most Bay Area publications - the honorary host committee is long and distinguished including many of the usual suspects like Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris and Willie Brown as well as Danielle Steel and Wilkes Bashford. And if you really want to find a way in, call Mary Tam at 415-682-3201 or email events(at)edgewood.org.
