To celebrate its ninth anniversary, The Center is taking over the beautiful San Francisco Design Center Galleria on Saturday, March 26, 2011, for a one-of-a-kind celebration that channels the glamour, romance and Dolce Vita spirit of Rome in the 1960s. Treat your senses to the sights, sounds, aromas and tastes of this distinctive era. Think Sophia Loren, Marcello Mastroianni, Vespa, Fiat, Ennio Morricone, Spaghetti Westerns, Roman Holiday.

Indulge your inner starlet. Have a red carpet run-in of your own with our friendly, flash-wielding paparazzi. Take an evening stroll in the atrium piazza, make a wish at the courtyard fountain, and enjoy a showcase of talented performance art, dance and music by leading Bay Area Entertainers including: Fauxnique, Glamamore, Veronica Klaus, DJ Stanley Frank, Honey Soundsystem and much more!

Plus a custom video series by queer filmmaker Marc Adelman, inspired by celebrated Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini as well as a supperclub lounge.

Place your bids at the silent auction on our second-floor mercato, featuring dozens of unique donated items, including restaurant and spa gift certificates, travel packages, beautiful works of art, gift baskets and collectibles.

Tempt your taste buds with top-shelf vodka cocktails, beer, wine and soft drinks at three hosted bars; and feast on a delizioso selection of savories and sweets provided by Power Source Cafe Catering and more than a dozen of San Francisco's finest restaurants.

Projected attendance of the event is upwards of 800 people from community and civic leaders, volunteers, donors and key constituents. This year we are excited to have as our honorary hosts the newest slate of freshman Supervisors: Scott Wiener with Malia Cohen, Mark Farrell and Jane Kim.
