And with that in mind, the organizers of the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival, which celebrates its 60th Anniversary on Sept. 17-18, have lined up a doozy of a music and culinary roster for its fundraiser gala on September 10 at the Throckmorton Theatre.
The gala kicks off at 6pm with a champagne, beer, wine and food from a who's who of great local restaurants and food and drink providers, including Bungalow 44, Piazza D'Angelo, El Paseo, Playa, Vasco, Equator, Mill Valley Market and Vintage Wine & Spirits.
The gala also features a concert from the Fall Arts Gala Jam Band, a group of some of the biggest names on the local music scene, including guitarist/band leader Jimmy Dillon, guitarist/keyboardist Bill Champlin, singer Tony Lindsay, drummer Deszon Claiborne, bassist Eric McCann and keyboardist Austin DeLone.
When the gala concludes at 9:30pm, a "Can't Get Enough" VIP after-party rolls over to Sammy Hagar's El Paseo for wine and light food with artist Tom Killion, musicians from the gala, festival luminaries and other special guests.
All proceeds go directly to support the festival via the 501c3 Friends of the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival, which also makes the majority of the cost of tickets fully tax deductible.
The 411: The 60th Annual Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival Fundraiser Gala is Saturday, Sept. 10, 6–9:30pm at the Throckmorton Theatre. MORE INFO & TIX.
