Fall into autumn

Yesterday was Garden Feast, a benefit gala luncheon on the grass at the Strybing Arboretum. Benefiting the San Francisco Botanical Garden. Honoring Richard Goldman. Speaker: Julie Packard.

A dinner tonight marks the twentieth anniversary of the San Francisco Food Bank.

Saturday is the Waves-to-Wine bike tour to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Sunday is the Bridge-to-Bridge run benefiting Special Olympics Northern California.

Sunday is also the CUESA fundraiser @ Ferry Plaza Building to benefit CUESA and sustainable agriculture education.

I'm not going to all of those. I can't go to all of those. And I stopped listing all the things I could go to because the list is LOOOOOOOOONG.

Yes, we have fallen into autumn and the benefit luncheons, dinners, runs, bike rides, sails, swims and fashion shows have kicked into high gear here, now that most everyone's home from their wanderings.

You can also just stay home and read a good book. The non-profits who benefit from all this gaiety and extroversion will happily take your check and wish you a peaceful evening.
