This past year has challenged everyone to step beyond their comfort zones. Coping with uncertainty and managing the growing need for their services, Lifehouse has served as an extraordinary example of hope, determination and resilience throughout the Covid-19 crisis. The nonprofit’s focus on providing a high quality of life and care for individuals with developmental disabilities has helped keep this traditionally unseen community safe. The critical need for Lifehouse’s services has become more important than ever.
Lifehouse is the largest agency supporting people with developmental disabilities in the Bay Area. With a keen eye on anticipating the evolving needs of the individuals they support, Lifehouse has continued to develop and refine its programs as a national archetype for over 65 years. The demands of our community continue to grow, as do the funds needed to provide these essential services.
This year, Lifehouse’s annual fundraising event will be the Great Chefs and Wineries Virtual Auction, running April 3–17. The Great Chefs and Wineries Virtual Auction will include an extensive selection of fine wines, unique local dining experiences, a beautiful collection of art, a sparkle raffle with an incredible diamond pendant necklace from Stephan-Hill Jewelry Designers, and gift certificates and baskets from local businesses. You can register, explore and start bidding on items on the event website.
Additionally, Lifehouse will be publishing an exclusive cookbook featuring some of the finest restaurants and wineries in the Bay Area, including International Smoke, Waterbar, Poggio Trattoria, Il Davide, Left Bank Brasserie and Insalata’s, just to name a few. Become a ticket sponsor, and you will receive the Great Chefs and Wineries cookbook and one entry to the Dom Perignon drawing.
Eighty-eight cents of every dollar raised goes directly toward enhancing and developing programs that meet the needs of individuals supported by Lifehouse. We hope that you will be active and generous as Lifehouse raises funds to support individuals in our community with developmental disabilities!
