Heart of the Valley Gala - Oct. 29th - 5:00-10:00pm - Marin Art and Garden Center

Mark Switzer • August 3, 2022


We are thrilled to announce that our Annual Heart of the Valley Gala is returning on October 29th! This year we will be venturing out of the Valley for a very special event at the Marin Art and Garden Center. 

The event starts at 5pm in the gallery with a cocktail hour and special viewing of the Connie Smith Siegel Retrospective Show. Upon her passing in 2020, Connie left the Community Center the largest legacy gift in our history and this event offers us a chance to honor her life and view her amazing collection of work.
At 6pm we will stroll through the gardens to the Livermore Pavillion where we will enjoy a delicious meal, local beer and wine, dancing, a silent auction with great experiential prizes, and of course the celebration of this years Heart of the Valley Gala honorees, Kelly Hunt Miceli and Margaret Krauss. Our Gala committee chose to honor these Kelly and Margaret based on their incredible contributions to the Valley and beyond at the San Geronimo Presbyterian Church Honor Pantry. Throughout the pandemic, these incredible people provided critical safety net services and food security to hundreds of people every week. While others were asked to stay home, Kelly and Margaret and a team of volunteers showed up in full personal protective gear and went to work. We are thrilled to be acknowledging them as our honorees of this year’s Gala!
