Monte Carlo Night @ ERA


The Fluegleman Bunnell Award Fund, partnering with ERA Art Bar and Lounge, Kingston 11 and KSJ Photography, bring you a Night in Monte Carlo.

For one night only ERA's 5,000 square space will be transformed, invoking the feel of 1900's Casino de Monte-Carlo. Summons your inner 007 or Dame Shirley Bassey and gamble the night away for a great cause. The night begins with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres provided by Kingston 11 between 7:00 and 8:00. Brush up on your black jack, roulette, craps or poker skills with friendly tutorials provided by casino staff during this first hour. At 8:00 the cards and dice fly.

Each guest will start the evening with $1,000 in chips. Twice during the evening we will auction off some wonderful prizes provided by local businesses and sports teams (9:30 & 11:30). This is where the chips come in! Guests will have the opportunity to purchase more chips throughout the evening. 100% of the entry fee and chip purchases will go to purchasing laptops for our 2017 class.

A bit about The Fluegelman Bunnell Award Fund

Honoring Andrew Fluegelman (1943-1985) and David Bunnell (1947-2016), two pioneers of the technology media industry, the Fluegelman Bunnell Award provides Macintosh laptop computers to outstanding San Francisco Bay Area high school seniors on their way to college. The award is granted by the Fluegelman Bunnell Fund, a collective action fund of Tides Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit designated by the IRS.

We are looking for Bay Area students who have overcome significant economic, social and family hardships, and who have contributed to their communities by participating in after-school and/or community programs.
