    Sausalito Winter Market  

    December 16th, 2023


    Founder of Botnia Skincare, Justine Kahn, and the Center for the Arts in Sausalito would like to invite you to shop the best of Marin brands.  Freda SalvadorCoyuchi Botnia SkincareAmanda HuntZoe Dering, and 25 other incredible brands are coming together to showcase the best of Marin County. Justine's vision for this winter market is the eco-park craft fair of northern California.   

    While many beauty brands claim to be clean and sustainable, few have the credibility to match Botnia Skincare, the esthetician founded botanical beauty line on a mission to deliver healthy, radiant skin — courtesy of science backed formulas packed with potent ingredients and fueled by sustainable farming practices.  At the helm is Justine Kahn, the formulator and esthetician who saw a need for individualized skincare solutions among her clients.  An avid gardener, she spent years hand mixing botanicals grown on her microfarm in Sausalito, California for her facials; now, the brand is available at spas across the country and at the winter market in Sausalito, California.   


    An opportunity for an in-person connection to established brands you won't find at Westcoast Craft, in the heart of Sausalito, at the historic Center for the Arts building next to the ferry.  Warm drinks, food, and the coolest gifts will be a part of this incredible event @Sausalitowintermarket

    WinterFest Gala
    Location: The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center - View Map


    Please join us at The Conrad for a Valentine’s Day celebration of music and romance at the 2024 WinterFest Gala.

    Guests will meet and mingle in The Wu Tsai QRT.yrd for a Champagne toast to our brilliant artists, followed by an elegant dinner and brief live auction before we enter The Baker-Baum Concert Hall for a concert by world-renowned soprano Renée Fleming, accompanied by our own Inon Barnatan. Finally, a post-concert dessert reception is the perfect way to conclude this day of love!

    This special evening provides the primary funding for La Jolla Music Society’s Learning and Engagement programs, which reach nearly 11,000 school children and adults in multiple locations throughout San Diego County every year. As someone whose love of music began in early childhood, these programs are especially dear to my heart. Your attendance at the Gala helps us improve and expand these programs to include even more San Diego children. Your participation is so much appreciated!

    You are invited to select the level of support that you prefer; charitable donors of $2,500 per person or $5,000 or more per household are also invited to a private Sponsor Party next Spring.

    I hope you will join us in welcoming Renée Fleming to The Conrad for a Valentine’s night to remember!

    With heartfelt thanks,

We will award Evelyn and Ernest RadyThe Peggy Matthews Legacy Award, for their profound impact on our community and The Salvation Army's mission. We will also recognize, Honorary Chairs, Louarn and Alan Sorkin for their years of service and philanthropy to so many organizations in San Diego. Don't miss this historic celebration of compassion and generosity.

    Join us as we raise funds at Women of Dedication 2024 to help finalize the Rady Center Project in Downtown San Diego. We hope to break ground in 2025 adding 200-300 beds for those experiencing homelessness including many other much needed services. At the event, we will be honoring Mr. and Mrs. Rady for their legacy of service to The Salvation Army and are asking you to come alongside them to help finalize this project. We are so thankful to the Rady's and to you for the opportunity to help people in San Diego!

    Learn More About The Rady Center Project

    The new Rady Center is made possible by a generous donation from Ernest and Evelyn Rady and a long-term innovative partnership with local nonprofit Wakeland Housing and Development Corporation catalyzing on the value of the land The Salvation Army owns downtown and replacing the current Centre City Corps with a nearly 200,000 square foot state of the art facility. The community and neighborhood friendly Rady Center will expand community services already provided, such as food assistance and senior meals, and will more than triple shelter and support services to get men and women off the streets and on a path to successful independent living or into permanent supportive housing. Along with interim and long-term transitional housing, the Rady Center will also offer bridge housing for men and women exiting rehab programs as well as permanent supportive and affordable housing units for rent. Join us and help to be a part of this transformation!
