Families Come Together for Festive Day to Raise Funds for Raphael House
Magic tricks, jubilant singalongs, balloon animals and much more delighted the many Bay Area families who came together on November 14 for our 5th annual Gobble & Give festival benefitting Raphael House families. This year’s event, our biggest yet, took place at Bunny Meadow in Golden Gate Park and raised nearly $50,000 for Raphael House’s Residential Shelter and Bridge programs to help families experiencing or at-risk of homelessness build brighter futures.
