Join us for Main Event 2013!


We're looking forward to hosting our 21st Annual Main Event Fundraiser Dinner Set on May 11, 2013!

Theme: Feeding the Hungry In Our Community
San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront in Burlingame

Master of Ceremonies: Congresswoman Jackie Speier
Auctioneer: State Senator Jerry Hill

On May 11th, Samaritan House will welcome members of the community, civic leaders, corporate sponsors, donors, and guests at The Main Event, a special evening celebrating the agency’s robust food program. The night will include fine dining, dancing, a live auction, raffle, and surprises along the way.

Over 400 guests are expected to attend the evening’s event, which begins at 6:00 p.m with a reception, followed by an elegant dinner and a welcome by Samaritan House Executive Director Kitty Lopez and Master of Ceremonies, Congresswoman Jackie Speier. Auctioneer and State Senator Jerry Hill will champion the cause – the Samaritan House food program – and auction off a variety of exciting items, from fine wines to gourmet dinners and travel getaways.

A new video about Samaritan House’s food program and hunger here at home will be premiered, followed by a “Fund-A-Need” auction, which will raise funds for the Samaritan House dining and food pantry services. The Raffle Grand Prize is a Hawaiian vacation at the Alii Kai Resort in Kauai, Hawaii. Guests will finish off the evening in style, dancing the night away to Motown and classic favorites from The Reed Fromer Band, one of the Bay Area's most dynamic and energetic musical groups.

Tickets are $150 if purchased before April 30, 2013 and $175 after this date, and can be ordered online at
