Heritage is pleased to announce that Soirée 2014 will be held at the Palace of Fine Arts on Saturday, May 10. Inspired by the elegance of this most exquisite venue and the era that created it, this black-tie event will feature cocktails under the rotunda, fine dining, dancing, casino gaming, and a stellar silent auction.
Designed by Bernard Maybeck to showcase fine art for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, the Palace inspired a campaign to preserve the structure as a permanent landmark even before the fair’s closing, with none other than architect Willis Polk declaring, “In all the ages was never a more beautiful building…”
As we approach its centennial, please join Heritage in celebrating the Palace of Fine Arts and all whose vision and extraordinary efforts have helped to preserve it for generations to come. Stroll through the colonnades, and enjoy cocktails under the stars, followed by a spectacular dinner dance and entertainment. Prizes for the “super-silent auction” will include dinner at the French Laundry, an art tour of Oliver Ranch, and a private behind-the-scenes tour of Alcatraz, plus much more!
