Signature Events – Bay and Sky Adventures

Experience the Bay Area in uncommon, unique sorts of ways. These particular adventures aren’t available to just anyone at any time and you can be one of the lucky few.

Feel the thrill of skimming across choppy waves in the San Francisco Bay in the America’s Cup Challenger USA76 – the very sailboat that was used in the 2003 America’s Cup race.

Signature Events – Food, Glorious Food!

OK, so we should probably rename “signature events” to “signature experiences” when it comes to the wine-ing and dining packages our auction committee has assembled. I mean, these items are not your run-of-the-mill dine-at-your-favorite-restaurant kinds of experiences. There’s something extra special about these bid items whether it be the location or the food or the drink or something. All are certain to capture your interest and all I can say is…INDULGE.

How about throwing a dinner party together for 12? And YOU don’t have to do the cooking or serving. And…LOBSTER for dinner? Rombauer Chardonnay? This is an experience certain to impress your friends.

Ever wonder how to make those elegant, artful pieces of sushi? Wonder no longer. Not when you can have a master sushi chef come over to teach you and your friends his techniques and let you in on a few of his secrets and then top it off with a fabulous 5-course dinner!

Of course, there are times when the food is the experience. So uniquely and delectably prepared with the freshest ingredients, the artistry of the chef is what makes this dining experience stand out, in this case, Chef Kinch of Manresa.

Signature Events – New Orleans Jazz

Aaaaahhhh…the birthplace of jazz. Visiting New Orleans is a singular adventure and one that anyone with the slightest curiosity or the greatest love for jazz music should experience. The balconies with intricate ironwork in the French Quarter, the giant tombstones that fill the cemeteries, the crunchy, deep fried goodness of fresh beignets, the mysteries and tales deeply rooted in the Voodoo religion, Mardi Gras, and so much more – will fill your days before an exciting jazz-filled evening at Preservation Hall. Available for bidding at the Wonderful Witchy Women With A Cause silent auction. Come join us and you could win this fabulous signature event!

The Candy Man Can…and more

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew…candymen

Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two..

The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can…


The Candy Man can ‘cause he sells boxes of chocolates for a raffle tix or two…

Seek out the tuxedo-garbed band of Candy men strolling around the venue to purchase box(es) of gourmet chocolates from local chocolatier, Chocolate Dream Box [1 box = $25, 2+ boxes = $20 each, and 5 boxes for $100] to obtain your raffle tickets for the drawing of an exclusive, one-of-WWW CANDYMAN TRAY PICTUREa-kind, Aquamarine ring by perennial Wonderful Witchy Women supporter, Joe Escobar Diamonds

Each year, J. Escobar designs a stunning piece of diamond-studded jewelry for our annual auction and it always boggles our collective minds how they are able to come up with one gorgeous design after another. And this year’s piece is no exception.

wwwc2015-6As this will certainly be a memorable affair, stop by the Step & Repeat banner to capture a few fun moments with your friends.
