Bring your family and enjoy delicious barbecue (with veggie options), grilled by our very own Steve D’Amico, and the rest of the SF Opera Bass Section!

We’ll have games for the kids, and a raffle with a dazzling array of prizes!

It’s a great opportunity to socialize and network in a beautiful location. Central Park boasts a ball diamond, tennis courts and a Japanese Tea Garden! We will have a volleyball net so be ready to spike the ball (not the punch) — No pets please.
