Project Open Hand held its 27th Annual Hand to Hand Luncheon at the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel on Thursday, December 12.

Guests dined on a wonderful menu that included elegant dishes created by celebrated Bay Area Chefs including Executive Chef Philippe Routhier from Box, Inc, Executive Chef Larry Finn from Credo, Chef Nathan Norris from Zuni Café, Executive Chef Oscar Gonzalez from the Fairmont, and Executive Chef Adrian Barrow from Project Open Hand.

Bay Area personality and voice-of-the SF Giants Renel Brooks-Moon delighted the crowd as the emcee and Golden State Warriors In-Arena MC Franco Finn had guests raising their bid paddles as the auctioneer.

The money raised from this event will support Project Open Hand’s mission to provide medically-tailored nutrition to the critically-ill in San Francisco and Alameda Counties.
