Following in the footsteps of the 50th Edgewood Fair, the Edgewood Auxiliary is excited to bring this event back to the Bently Reserve in San Francisco. Our goal is to raise nearly half a million dollars for Edgewood Center for Children and Families. These funds will be used to help provide crucial support services to thousands of vulnerable children and youth suffering from trauma, abuse and neglect throughout the Bay Area.
Last year with your support, we were able to raise over $450,000 which will help us serve over 7,000 youth and their families throughout San Francisco and San Mateo counties!
During the 50th Fair, we heard incredible stories of hope, perseverance, and transformation. The event was truly a wonderful gathering of everyone that makes up the heart and soul of Edgewood including our Edgewood Auxiliary Alumnae - a group of dedicated women who laid the foundation for the Fair and for many of Edgewood's programs that are operating today.
As you can see from the photo album slide show below, this was a celebration for the senses with the stunning Bently Reserve as the backdrop, performances by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and catering by McCalls.
We look forward to sharing with you the magic that is Edgewood Center for Children and Families during the 51ST Edgewood Fair!

EDGEWOOD FAIR HISTORY
The Edgewood Garden Fair made its debut on May 3, 1967 in the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. It began as a garden festival for the Auxiliary to sell home-grown plants and handmade jams to benefit children with mental illness. Since then, the Edgewood Auxiliary has grown the Edgewood Fair into a sophisticated two-day annual charity extravaganza raising more than $8 million to help the thousands of Bay Area children, youth, and families Edgewood Center for Children and Families serves each year.
