The Westin St. Francis
Opera Guild Event


Dear Opera Lovers,
 
The time has arrived – the fall opera season is a vast triumph and the holiday season is upon us!  San Francisco Opera Guild is pleased to invite you to our annual holiday party – Holiday Cheers: Peace on Earth Celebration!  The Westin St. Francis Union Square will host this elegant soirée on Wednesday, December 12th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in their spectacular private room, Alexandra’s. Take in the views of festive Union Square and embrace the unity and serenity of the holiday season while indulging in fine wines and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres from around the world.  The evening will include sparkling multicultural entertainment, as well as silent and live auctions offering many unique gift ideas that will enfold anyone in the holiday spirit. Mark this date on your holiday calendar and invite your family, friends and colleagues, as this harmonious event urges all to melt into the warmth and merriment of the holidays.
 
Your participation in this event ensures that San Francisco Opera Guild will continue our tradition of introducing children to the beauty and excitement of opera through our education and outreach programs.  In addition, a portion of the proceeds from Holiday Cheers will fund San Francisco Opera Guild sponsored performances at various health, youth and senior agencies during the month of December.
 
Holiday Cheers is certain to fill to capacity early; therefore, we encourage you and your guests to secure reservations in advance by using this form or ordering online here. Your response by October 22nd and purchase of a ticket at the Harmony level and above will allow us to recognize your contribution in the Holiday Cheers invitation.
 
We appreciate your support and look forward to celebrating the holidays together while sharing the gift of opera with our community.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at (415) 565-3204 and we hope to see you and your friends at Holiday Cheers on December 12th!
 
Warm Regards,
