St. Anthony raises the roof

“Raising the Roof III” gala dinner and auction: The third annual event, held Thursday at Fulton Street Plaza, raised more than $800,000 for St. Anthony Foundation’s programs, which serve the homeless and working poor. The gathering — chaired by Sandy and Paul Otellini, Betty Louie and Donna Ames-Heldfond — included cocktails, silent and live auctions, and an elegant dinner. KRON’s Pam Moore was the mistress of ceremonies.

 

In honor of historic places 

Sip Some Wine & Walk Through Time: The U.S. Mint was the setting Wednesday for an event honoring those working to save historic places. The evening — chaired by Carol and Shelby Bonnie, Linda and Jerry Bruckheimer and Jenny and Richard Emerson — also was a benefit for the Western Regional Office of the National Trust.

 

Celebs get wet and wild
