SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Visual Aid & Academy of Friends present our fourth annual Art Auction at the Clift Hotel, 495 Geary St., San Francisco on Thursday, March 24th from 6-9pm.

Admission is $25. The event begins with a preview party featuring a DJ, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres sponsored by the Clift, followed by a riveting, live art auction of 40+ works of art, donated by well-known local artists, and other fabulous items. The charming and hilarious Stephen Tourell of Toomey Tourell Fine Art is our auctioneer. Fabulous non-art items will be included in the auction, including a pair of First Class, Round Trip tickets to Europe, courtesy of Iceland Air.
