AFTER TWO LONG YEARS, THE STAR CHEFS & VINTNERS GALA IS BACK!
This epicurean adventure will feature Northern California’s most celebrated chefs & vintners in support of San Francisco’s seniors! The funds raised at this annual event help MOWSF provide nutritious meals and support services to over 5,000 homebound seniors. The Gala provides invaluable funding and contributes directly to the operational budget that ensures MOWSF's mission continues.
Volunteering for this event is a fun, impactful, and memorable way to contribute to your community and support our elders. There are many volunteer opportunities to choose from and we hope that you can join us!
