The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show Preview Gala

The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show presented its 32nd Annual fair, opening with the Preview Gala on October 23 at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco.  Show Chairs, Michele Goss and Adrianna Pope Sullivan welcomed over 2,000 guests including Ann and Bob Fisher, Dede Wilsey, Summer Tompkins Walker, Trevor Traina, Kathryn Lasater, Kendall Wilkinson, John and Cynthia Gunn and Ken Fulk.

The Preview Gala opened the 4-day show, presenting 63 international exhibitors from 9 countries in a broad range of high end art and antiques collecting areas. The Gala channeled the jazz age in honor of its theme “Jazz Moderne: Art Deco & the Avant Garde”.  Guests entered through a larger than life entrance display of four 20-foot French Art Deco-inspired urns designed and created by famed architect, Andrew Skurman, constructed by Moroso Construction and painted by decorative painter, Willem Rack√©.  

The Gala is well known for its live music, numerous caviar and vodka bars, flowing Champagne, sumptuous dinner buffets and over the top dessert stations.  The Pacific Chamber Orchestra played jazz throughout the 50,000 square feet of the show.

Since 1969, Enterprise for High School Students has worked with youth to prepare them for their next steps after high school. The ratio of students to counselors in the San Francisco Unified School District is 1,151 : 1. Enterprise supports these youth through programs that provide students with the ability and opportunity to find and retain jobs, explore career opportunities and develop life skills crucial for their transition from high school to adult life.

More than 20,000 youth have learned the skills and values essential to workplace success at Enterprise. 100% of the proceeds of the show go directly to Enterprise for High School Students.
