Youth in Arts hosted our second annual Bocce Tournament Fundraiser on a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon in San Rafael. Nearly 50 players enjoyed four lively rounds of Bocce at the Marin Bocce Federation on September 15th. Many donors came out to support the event, and one of the eight teams was comprised of teenagers from our ‘Til Dawn A Cappella group. Though our ‘Til Dawn team they didn’t take home the big prize, they played with such wonderful enthusiasm! Competition was stiff, but after an exciting final round between, Take the Cannoli and deBOCCEry…deBOCCEry came away with the win! The winning team was rewarded with beautiful certificates and bottles of wine from YIA Board Member, Maura Tokarski. Our fantastic volunteers, Aliya & Jeffrey helped us to sell lots of raffle tickets at the event and announced the winners of the wonderful prizes from Benissimo Restaurant & Bar, Pizzalina, and Marin Bocce Federation. ‘Til Dawn performed a set of four beautiful songs, to cap off a great day. We enjoyed delicious food and beverages from our generous donors – beer from Iron Springs Public House, wine from BJ Acker-Hitta, a slider bar from Farmburger Marin, and dessert from True Marin Treats. A big thank you to all of our individual and corporate donors, volunteers, and staff for helping make this fundraiser a success!
