On Thursday, February 14, 2019, the PR Round Table hosted its annual fundraising gala — this time with a distinctly romantic flair befitting its Valentine’s Day date.
Our members and their guests were enthralled by our absolutely glamorous MC and live auctioneer, San Francisco drag icon Donna Sachet, as well as our keynote speaker, San Francisco Chronicle Columnist Phil Matier.
In return, our members and guests expressed love for our future scholarship winners — by raising a total of $10,000 at the silent and live auctions, and via sponsorships.
We would like to thank all of our gala sponsors (see list) and auction donors (see list), as well as Troika Winery for donating wine for the party, as well as the Westin St. Francis Hotel for being such gracious hosts.
We also would like to thank Patricia Harden, of Harden Communications Company, for her donation, as well as Stanton Public Relations & Marketing (New York), for their matching donation — which together put their sponsorship in the Diamond Level ($1,000 and above). A big thanks also to Sam Singer of Singer Associates for their Diamond Level donation.
And last, but not least — we sincerely thank everyone who attended, bid at the auction or otherwise supported our Scholarship Fund. You are ensuring the future of our field and craft in the Bay Area.
