If you are a regular reader of Bub, you are probably aware of all the monthly tech events that occur in San Francisco. To broaden the scene that Bub covers, I wanted to cover a different event this time, which happens to be the JLSF Fashion Show 2008 Launch Party. “The Junior League of San Francisco, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.” The event was put together by Jaime Jensen and Nicole Alfague and took place at the Zephyr Ventilation Showroom, to launch the annual fashion show and to celebrate the 20 year partnership with Macy’s Department Store. The event was hosted by San Francisco Magazine and catered by Indulge Caterers.
The event’s celebrity MC was Hooman of Radio Alice 97.3 pictured above with the event’s co-chair Jaime Jensen.
The well organized event was enjoyed by many wonderful guests. Indulge Caterers provided plenty of delicious appetizers and drinks. The location of the Zephyr Showroom in Potrero Hill provided a great atmosphere and plenty of parking unlike the typical events that take place at the bars in downtown SF. I met numerous members of the JLSF organization and they were a great group of professional women that volunteer and dedicate a lot of their time every year to organize these great events for charity.
THe JLSF 82nd Annual Fashion Show Gala will take place on April 5th and tickets and info can be found at www.fashionshow.jlsf.org.
Highlights of the event included a mini-silent auction that included Golden State Warriors tickets, Southwest Airlines tickets, American Laser Centers treatment, Serenity Dental Spa, and more.
