It’s time to celebrate the best of the best at the event of the summer! Marin Magazine staff, along with hundreds of winners from the annual Best of the County issue, gather to recognize all the awesomeness found throughout our county. Expect waterfront views, great food, great drinks (open bar!), dancing under the stars and rubbing elbows with the best of the county. Even better, a portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will benefit the San Francisco/Marin Food Bank. Photos by Steven Gregory Photography.
