A Longstanding Tradition
The Edgewood 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 two-day annual charity extravaganza that has raised more than $8 million to help the thousands of Bay Area children, youth, and families Edgewood serves each year.
The 54th Annual Edgewood Fair
Thank you for joining us at the 54th Edgewood Fair that was a week-long, virtual event. Because of generous supporters like you, the event raised over $430,000!
Your investment comes at a critical time as we confront the stark reality of COVID-19’s impact on daily life and the vulnerable children, youth and families we serve at Edgewood.
For 169 years, we have never wavered in our commitment to serve children and families who need us, not matter what. With your support we will be able to continue to provide essential services and programs that are needed now, more than ever.
A heart felt thank you to our Fair Sponsors who graciously transferred their event tickets into cash donations when we could no longer hold an in-person event.
Also, a most gracious thank you to our new supporters and long-time advocates who participated in our Fund-A-Future.
None of this could have been accomplished without the dedication of the Edgewood Auxiliary. Pivoting a two-day event into a virtual event in two weeks was nothing short of amazing. Their patience, poise, and dedication make our success possible!
For over 72 years, the Edgewood Auxiliary has helped raise funds and awareness for Edgewood. What started as a County Kitchen featuring homemade jams and sauces has since transformed into an extravagant two-day fundraising event and now into our first ever virtual event.
Thank you so much to all of you for being a part of this time-honored tradition and for supporting Edgewood! Your generosity will make it possible for us to continue providing critical mental health and family support programs for those who most urgently need them.
If you missed the opportunity to show your support through our Fund-a-Future while it was live, you can still donate through our general donation form or please contact Gregg Biggs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you in person again at the 55th Edgewood Fair in 2021!
