The Garden Party is one of our community’s most eagerly anticipated social events of the year, and an important fundraiser for the KEF’s academic enrichment programs. Each year over 500 attendees have the opportunity to meet old and new friends, enjoy a sumptuous selection of great food and drink, and win some fantastic items in the event’s silent and live auctions. Items up for bid run the gamut from children’s toys to weekend getaways to authentic works of fine art!
This year’s Garden Party will be held on Saturday, November 11th at the Berkeley Country club formerly know as Mira Vista Country Club in El Cerrito. Dozens of volunteers spend months of time preparing for the event with activities such as soliciting donations from local businesses, creating an online catalog, creating and mailing invitations, designing a menu and preparing food, flower arranging, and much more. In addition, the Dads’ Club always turns out in force to help set up, tend the bar, and put everything back in its place at the close.
If you’d like to get involved as a volunteer and have a lot of fun at the same time, contact Garden Party chair Anna Watkins Porter or Amy Mullarkey.
