San Francisco Ski Club’s

"Wine By the Bay"

 Set for Oct. 9


  After a one year absence, The San Francisco Ski Club's 12th  "Wine By the Bay" fundraising gala will be Sat., Oct. 9. It will be in a new location in the Presidio in San Francisco:  the Golden Gate Club, the graceful Spanish Colonial Revival building with stunning views of the Bay. 


The black tie optional event will feature wine tastings from a number of Napa and Sonoma wineries, full buffet dinner, silent auction and dancing to the nine-piece band, "Casino Royale."  The wine

tastings and dinner are from 7 to 9 p.m. and dancing is 9 p.m. to midnight.  "Wine By the Bay" will

benefit the ski club and Disabled Sports USA.


  The Golden Gate Club is located at 135 Fisher Loop, the Presidio, San Francisco, CA 94129. Please note that this is NOT the Golden Gate Yacht Club where last year’s New York State of Mind Party was held. Directions to Wine By the Bay can be found on www.sfskiclub.org or at www.goldengateclub.com


.“The Golden Gate Club is a new and beautiful location, overlooking San Francisco Bay,” said Dory Ryan, president, San Francisco Ski Club. “In the past, the event was held aboard a Hornblower ferry but the cost for the boat has become prohibitive. We chose a different location -- that will be just as

spectacular – so we’re able to keep the ticket price affordable. It will be a great party, with many people  coming from the entire Bay Area. We hope as many of our members as possible will support it. ”


Cost is now $75 (as the early bird deadline for tickets was Sept. 19.)  

To buy a ticket, send a check to Risa Meyer, 3323 Broderick St., San Francisco, CA 94123.  Tickets are also available online: go to www.sfskiclub.org. On the Home Page, scroll down to Wine By the Bay and click on “Buy Now” for a PayPal purchase. For more information: sfrisa@aol.com, or telephone 415 885 6417. No tickets will be sold at the door.
