Have we mentioned how much we love to have fun while benefiting the greater good? We probably have, but we’re going to mention it again for good measure because the San Francisco Social fired up once again this November to raise money for the Larkin Street Youth Services! And SnapFiesta was invited to record the night, photobooth style!

The SF Social featured gourmet food, a silent auction, Benefit gift bags, an open bar,  and an after party!  This years sponsors included The W Hotel, Benefit makeup, Harlot, The San Francisco Bay Club and many more.
