Founded in March 2004, George Mark Children’s House is located in the East Bay Hills of San Leandro. The organization serves a critical need for families facing the loss of a child, by providing them with round-the-clock care for their ill child in a home-like, peaceful environment. The first and only facility of its kind, the House offers a new option for seriously ill children to receive the highest quality of respite care while their families take a break from the non-stop responsibility of home care.
Legacy was created in 2006 to introduce young Bay Area professionals to George Mark Children’s House (GMCH). With members ranging between the ages of 25 and 45, Legacy’s goal is to educate and engage a younger demographic by hosting various social events that raise awareness and funds to the cause of caring for seriously ill children.
At the fundraising ~TASTES OF THE CITY~ event, attendees will sample an array of local cuisine and cocktails, and will have an opportunity to bid on prizes during the event’s silent and live auctions. All proceeds from the event will directly support GMCH. The cocktail party includes:
Food & beverages from: XYZ, Baraka, Alembic, Amarena, Joey & Eddie’s, Sauce, Puccini & Pinetti, Sugar Café and Lounge, Soluna, Trumer Pilsner, Hangar One Vodka, Pama Liqueur, Rodney Strong, and others.
Silent & live auctions with the opportunity to win a range of items, including: getaway packages to Carmel, CA and Sun Valley, ID, gift certificates from Perbacco, Bin 38, Americano, and other restaurants, game tickets to the San Francisco Giants and 49ers, and more!
