Place your bids for the Bay

Tug boat
Join us at Fall for the Bay on Sept 26th and bid on a tug boat trip on the Bay with geologist Doris Sloan.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Well, maybe it’s not Mardi Gras, but we guarantee a good time at Fall for the Bay, Save the Bay’s 2013 gala event at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio.

Come hobnob with special guests – well-known writers, Bay restoration and environmental experts, corporate and civic leaders.

Test your bidding strategies and take home an auction trophy.  How about:

  • a long weekend at a home in Ashland with OSF theater tickets, and gift certificates for top restaurants
  • a six-hour tour of San Francisco Bay aboard the Nordic tug Eternity with guest guide Doris Sloan, the premier expert on the geology of the Bay Area
  • a ride for 10 aboard a San Francisco fire engine with Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White!

And these are just three of the many, many great items: other special weekend adventures, sailing lessons, library wines, high-end restaurant dinners, and tickets galore including some special behind-the scenes tours to theaters, Giants games, symphony, museums, and zoos.

Oh, and don’t forget the evening’s great food, wines, music, and programming. Do come and let the good times roll!

The 2013 Bay-A-Thon: Double Your Impact

Do you remember the first time you saw the Bay?Donate Today

Did your breath catch in your throat? Did your eyes widen at the sheer size of the Bay, the vast sparkling blueness that seemed to stretch on forever? Did you hear seals barking or sails flapping in a strong wind? The Bay brings us unforgettable moments…chilly walks along the shore…vibrant sunsets…that sense of home you feel when the thick fog breaks to reveal the Golden Gate Bridge.  These moments are the reason we’re so lucky to live in the Bay Area. The Bay is important to all of us—it makes our home unique. We can’t afford to take it for granted.

Today, we’re launching our first ever Bay-A-Thon to rally support for the spectacular San Francisco Bay.

For the next two weeks, every dollar we raise for the Bay-A-Thon will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous donor. Donating now is an incredibly powerful way to support local restoration and education programs right here in our shared backyard.

The Bay-A-Thon is about celebrating and protecting the unique treasures of the Bay. We’re not just saving the Bay for us, but for future generations to enjoy the magnificent experiences and recreational opportunities we enjoy with our family and friends. This is why we need your support today to keep our Bay healthy and people and wildlife.

Every gift that Save The Bay receives by July 4th will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $150,000. Can we count on you to offer your support for the first ever Bay-A-Thon and help us protect our Bay?

Your support makes a difference. Any amount you donate will be doubled to aid our efforts to restore crucial habitat for the seals, porpoises, and birds that call the Bay home and help protect the magnificent Bay recreational opportunities you enjoy with your family and friends. July 4th will be here sooner than you know, so make your Bay-A-Thon gift today.
