Earlier this month, UCSF Medical Center CEO Mark Laret joined UCSF Partners in Care for their first signature fundraiser, Cirque du Soiree. Proceeds generated from the evening’s ticket sales will benefit UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital patients and and specific patient programs supported by UCSF PIC.
Event Co-Chairs, Lisa Gruber and Bailey Locke, with the support from their committee comprised of UCSF Partners in Care members, coordinated Cirque du Soiree. Guests enjoyed circus-like décor, trapeze artists contorting and flying mid-air, high-wire cocktails, lion-size appetizers and danced the night away to music by DJ Franco “Freestyle” Finn, all under the big top at Robert Fountain Studio, RF80.
Notable attendees included CEO of UCSF Medical Center & UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, Mark Laret, SF Fashion Designer Lilly Samii, President of UCSF PIC Board, Katie Budge, Beth Schnitzer of Moreno Champagne, UCSF Medical Center Executives, Kathy Balestreri, Jennifer Arnett, Larry Zeiber, Tammy Nicastro, Molly Toffey, Maureen Royer, Suzanne Teer, Kelley O’Brien, Kim Murphy.
