A super few months for Raphael House with the BABC & Aramark Building Community Task Force, 2016.

In addition to the very generous proceeds from the BABC 2015 Christmas Luncheon Live Auction, thank you to Stuart Bagshaw and family, we have added a further $15,000 in Grants and proceeds from events such as "A Jolly Good Day At the Races" hosted at Golden Gate Fields, Berkeley back in May. To date this year we have raised nearing $60,000 for this wonderful cause. In addition, we saw generous donations of family experience tickets to The Bay Area Discovery Museum, The Aquarium of The Bay, The Walt Disney Museum, de Young Museum, The Children's Creativity Museum, and Community Access Ticket Services will also be joining forces with Raphael House to give these families the opportunity to spend quality family time at some of the top family attractions in San Francisco - Thanks to Stephanie Elliot for making this happen and to the organizations who so generously donated.

On 20th September, Aramark Building Community will be providing over 50 volunteers for a Shelter Upkeep Day and Health & Wellness Event including Cooking Demonstrations, Healthy Eating Workshops, handing healthy eating books for families and other great prizes for attendees. Please email Holly Briese if you would like to volunteer for the day at

We continue to ask for donations from as little as $5 in cash for Clipper cards for family transport around the city to library books, back to school back packs, even your old laptop computer. Visit to learn how you can help this wonderful cause.

Thanks to Aramark and all the Members of the British American Business Council for your most generous and heart warming support for Raphael House.

Inspiring Families. Illumination Hope.
