Discarded to Divine 2012
Thursday, April 26, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Reclaimed Fashions. Renewed Lives.
Every day, more than one thousand San Franciscans who struggle with homelessness, poverty, addiction, and domestic violence turn to the St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco (SVDP-SF) for help—and hope.
Enter Discarded to Divine—a unique event that celebrates and enables new beginnings, where leading and aspiring designers transform discarded clothing into wearable works of art and exquisite home decor.
Come join us at the San Francisco Design Center Galleria for a night of fun and compassion as we celebrate the fabulous fashons and beautiful home decor created and donated by local (and far-away) artists and designers while raising funds for one of San Francisco's oldest charities.
The evening will begin with a VIP Reception at the Kravet Showroom at 6:00pm where you can glimpes at the runway creations up close. General admission starts at 6:30 where all guests will enjoy hosted cocktails and appetizers while browsing through the beautiful silent auction pieces on two floors. Then at 8:00pm, the show begins with a live auction of the runway pieces - and much more.......we hope to see you at this yearly event!
PLEASE NOTE - ALL ADVANCE TICKET SALES WILL END BY 5:00PM TUESDAY APRIL 24TH FOR TICKET PROCESSING. YOU MAY PURCHASE TICKETS AT THE DOOR STARTING AT 6PM APRIL 26TH. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!
This year we will feature BidPal, an easy, tech-savvy and "green" way to bid!
A new twist for silent auction bidding BidPal is a handheld device that allows wireless bidding. Your own personal BidPal allows you to:
- Bid anytime and from anywhere during the silent auction
- See all item information and current bid status
- Receive outbid alerts and re-bid
- Personalize your item ‘watch’ list

It’s fun and entertaining!
