The Annual Christmas Luncheon is the BABC's flagship social event and a real highlight of the city's holiday scene.
Last year, attended by over 1000 members of the Bay Area business community, we celebrated the 54th Annual Christmas Lunch presented by CyraCom International, which was once again held at the spectacular Fairmont Hotel, atop Nob Hill. Tickets included complimentary champagne and wine at the Pre-Luncheon Play Rugby USA Champagne Reception and a sumptuous three course traditional British Christmas lunch with plenty of wine!
Guests also enjoyed some great entertainment from the Dicken's Christmas Fair Characters, live music from our friends at The Irish Pipers' Band of San Francisco, an incredible major Grand Raffle Prize Drawing and Live Auction.
Because of the generosity of our Sponsors, Donors and guests, the Christmas Lunch raised $17,000 for Raphael House, a non-profit charity that the BABC has supported for 12 years.
This year, we are pleased to announce that Play Rugby USA will be our primary beneficiary, receiving 100% of the funds raised from the last item on offer in the Live Auction.
One of the highlights of the Annual BABC Christmas Luncheon is our Grand Raffle Prize Drawing. We have a fabulous range of luxury trips and experiences to be won by lucky ticket holders on the day. Make sure to purchase your tickets on the day!
Our thanks to all who helped make the 53rd Annual Christmas Luncheon a huge success. Check out the video below produced by 2020 Productions!
