Haute Event: Gump’s 150th Anniversary Gala to Benefit California College of the Arts

On March 31, Gump’s San Francisco hosted the Mirror Mirror charity event, which was held at their flagship store on Post Street. A sea of local Bay Area celebrities sipped cocktails and caroused as Mirror Mirror auctioned off a collection of one-of-a-kind mirrors designed by such lauded figures as interior designers Kelly Wearstler and Steven Volpe, industrial designer Yves Béhar, architect Mark Jensen, and artist Raymond Saunders.

The charitable gala was held to benefit the California College of the Arts (CCA).  Tickets from the sold-out dinner party and proceeds from the auctioned mirrors earned a grand total of $417,000 to be allotted as future student scholarships for CCA.

In 1861 brothers Solomon and Gustav Gump established their first store, a mirror and frame shop, which is where the inspiration for this festal event was born.  Event chair and CCA trustee Ann Hatch and AIGA Gold Medal recipient and CCA faculty member Jennifer Morla collaborated to bring together paramount talent in keeping with Gumps’s dedication and attention to design, detail, and excellence.

Notable guests included Yves Béhar and Sabrina Buell, Randi and Bob Fisher, Pam and Dick Kramlich, Summer Tompkins Walker, Katie and Matt Paige, Kate Harbin and Adam Clammer, Art Gensler, Stanlee Gatti, Chris Columbus, and Leslie and Michael Krasny.
