There will be a big fund raising gala for the East Bay Children's Choir this coming Saturday, March 1st at HS Lordships at the Berkeley Marina.  It promises to be an amazing evening.  Guests are able to view the stunning San Francisco Bay views out the restaurant window while enjoying the activities developed around the theme of "Joyful Voices Speakeasy Gala".

There will be dining, dancing, and excellent musical entertainment performed by the PEBCC staff and alumni.  The music will be of 1920's to 1930's vintage, and featured performers include Broadway Baby Lauren Eigenbrode, Clifton Masey and Kate Offer.  They will be sharing the stage with the Nick Culp Jazz Quintet.

There will be a live auction hosted by KCBS "Foodie Chap" Liam Mayclem, and the list of auction items promises to be long and varied. Trips to places like England, and Hawaii are mixed with a wide variety of food and wine adventures.  A special  item being auctioned is a Pixar Studio Tour for ten that offers lunch, and a dozen cupcakes!  The evening will conclude with the "Fund-a-Need" event which has a goal, this year, of raising funds to sponsor an international choir for the tri-annual Golden Gate Festival scheduled for 2015.

So, get on your dancing shoes and best party clothes, and make plans to attend.  Details and auction information are at
