About the Event

This year, the venue for the Gala will be held at SOMArts Cultural Center

SOMArts (South of Market Arts, Resources, Technology, and Services) is an independent nonprofit that operates the South of Market Cultural Center, part of a network of six cultural centers in San Francisco. SOMArts is beloved in San Francisco as a cross-cultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture mix with traditional art forms in a open, engaging and inspiring way.  Just like Alta Vista!

Come and enjoy the fun as we transform SOMArts to a Gala event to remember.


Sip a pre-drink and indulge in tasty appetizers by our own Chef Steph while you browse everything in the silent auction. Try a new restaurant, treat yourself, plan your next vacation and check out the fabulous class projects involving your child’s best effort!

Mingle with friends over a creative and yummy family style dinner by Chef Pelle. During dinner, you will not only be able to grab fantastic offers in the Live Auction, but also experience illusions and surprises… 

No AVS Gala would be complete without a party! End the night ‘dancing with the stars’. The evening will go on until 11pm.
