Reason to Party & dot429 Winter Gala
Friday, December 13, 2013 at 9:00 PM

The tree in Union Square is lit bright, Muni is packed tight with North Face jackets and wet rain boots, and the annual RTP holiday event is right around the corner. 

This year, we’re teaming up with dot429 and fashion icon Carmen Marc Valvo to host “Never Too Young”—a party to benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance.

Located at the luxurious top floor of the Grand Hyatt hotel in Union Square, you’ll enjoy breathtaking, 360-degree views of San Francisco while sipping delicious cocktails from our hosted bar.  Enjoy delicious cocktails from No. 209 Gin, Soyombo Super Premium Vodka, Corralejo Tequila and Sapporo Premium Beer. Chat and mingle with a warm crowd as our live entertainment sets the mood with New Orleans and Brazilian jazz—but bring your dancing shoes, because the legendary Juanita MORE! will be spinning later in the night.
