Aside from snacks (including gluten-free ones) and beverages (wine available for adults and appropriate juices for children), this event will feature the following:

A vast array of teddy bear themed artwork and gift baskets for raffle give-away (per suggested ticket donation), purchase and/or silent auction; balloons, music, a roving photographer .... and more!


WHERE: ELKS LODGE; 1312 Mission Ave, San Rafael, CA 94901

WHEN:  Friday; September 14th  5:30pm-8:30pm
