Time: 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM PST
On Sunday, March 5th, some 400 NAMI supporters will strain Northern California’s crab supply when they gather for NAMI Contra Costa’s 4th annual fundraising Gala. The event, which raises money to support NAMI CC’s free programs, is open to all. It’s an action packed evening fueled by fresh crab, pasta with sauce, Caesar salad, and fresh, Semifreddi bread. A variety of ultra-tempting homemade cakes and pies will top off the meal. A cash bar will serve up wines and, for the first time this year, handcrafted brews from Epidemic Ales. In the spirit of fundraising, the local microbrewery will split profits with NAMI CC. You won’t want to miss a thing, starting with special guest, Jeff Bell, KCBS news anchor and long-time NAMI CC friend. He’ll spend the evening with us and will share a bit about living successfully with obsessive-compulsive disorder. We'll have some big ticket raffle prizes worth many hundreds of dollars, ranging from a Sonoma Valley weekend package to a local Stay-cation to a children’s offering that includes a full-sized playhouse donated by Habitat for Humanity. Fund-a-Program provides a fast-paced auction giving you the opportunity to support your favorite NAMI CC programs: Peer-to-Peer, In Our Own Voice, Family-to-Family, and NAMI Basics. During the evening, tables silently bid on donated cakes to enjoy as dessert. The winning tables send a representative to choose from the cake table, making for a wild dash as runners compete to snatch one up. Not to worry about winning a cake; homemade cookies are served to all tables.
