Our annual holiday fundraiser is on!
Join us to support the children of Ronald McDonald House Charities Bay Area.
2020 has taught us a lot about the fragility of health and how life can change overnight.
Our hearts go out to all those navigating additional health concerns on top of the dangers of COVID-19, and that’s one of the reasons we’re participating in the Ronald McDonald House Charities Bay Area’s “Comfort & Joy” holiday drive to raise money in support of children facing cancer diagnoses and their families during a year that has been especially difficult. We’re asking you, our community, to rally with us around this important cause — any donation amount is appreciated, and we’re planning to 100% match the total of what we raise, up to our goal.
This means if you come together to contribute $1000,
we’ll be donating $2000 to the Bay Area regional chapter of Ronald McDonald House!
Thank you for continuing to stand with us through these months of uncertainty, and for joining us now in making a difference in the young lives that will be touched by this effort.
Wishing you all a very happy holiday season, and may you remain safe and healthy into 2021 and beyond. We appreciate your support!
THIS MONTH …
WHERE TO STAY
LE BARTHÉLEMY HOTEL & SPA
Topping Condé Nast Traveler’s list of the best resorts in the Caribbean, this acclaimed destination is an education in understated elegance. Meanwhile, two new villas, Bleu and Aqua, were recently added to offer completely private, directly on the beach accommodations for a family or group of friends looking to rent with all the amenities of a top-notch resort.
