The Sausalito Floating Homes Virtual Gala and Tour is only THREE weeks away and the Planning Committee has been working feverishly to curate and create a fabulous evening for all. Do you have your tickets yet?
Cavallo Point Stay-and-Play Live Auction Package
We are thrilled to announce that Cavallo Point will be featured as part of our Live Auction portion of the event hosted by celebrity auctioneer Senator Mike McGuire.
Voted #1 “Best Hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area” and Winner “Sustainable Tourism Leadership,” Cavallo Point, is located at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, a short distance from downtown San Francisco and is inspired by both its stunning natural setting in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and its storied history.
Look for this exciting (and luxurious) offering as part of our Live Auction, as well as, wonderful pieces of art, services, books and more as part of our Silent Auction. The Silent Auction opens for bidding on June 2, so you may bid early and often.
Featured Homes on the Virtual Tour
This year, the tour will feature several very special floating homes. One home, the Fairy Tale, was originally a life boat built in 1943 for World War II. It was salvaged in 1968 and converted into a home by a couple who wanted to live off the grid. Every owner since has made some major changes to make this Floating home a true Fairy Tale.
Another architectural masterpiece, the Train Wreck, is built from an exquisite 1889 North Pacific Railway Pullman car that was cut in half and integrated into the ingenious structure.
And new to the tour, the Mirene, is a bright white and red, 64-foot, 1912 tugboat that has been beautifully restored to the finest detail.
