The Fourth Annual Lawn Party will be held on Saturday, September 28 on the lawn at St. Vincent’s in San Rafael. An annual benefit for Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Higher Ground, a project that helps wounded veterans, The Lawn Party is an outdoor gala featuring Marin’s favorite local eateries and wines along with music from Lyin’ I’s, the Bay Area’s Eagles tribute band.
“Join us for one of the season’s most fun events – kind of a cross between The Great Gatsby and Hotel California,” said Greg Chidlaw, local financial advisor and one of the original co-founders of The Lawn Party. “We even have an Eagles tribute band this year to set the mood, along with terrific food from Il Davide and many more of our favorite restaurants and wineries. And it’s all for a great cause.”
Chidlaw and his two partners, Chef David Haydon of Il Davide and Steven Restivo, event-planner extraordinaire, launched The Lawn Party in 2010 as a way of giving back to their community. With Chidlaw’s passion, Haydon’s great restaurant connections and Restivo’s logistical acumen, The Lawn Party was born. It has quickly become an end-of-summer ritual that features the best local music, wines and food. The Lawn Party has also raised tens of thousands of dollars for groups like Meals on Wheels, Wounded Veterans and Big Brothers / Big Sisters.
The Lawn Party will be held on Saturday, September 28 from 6:00 – 10:30pm at St. Vincent’s in San Rafael (1 St. Vincent's Drive). Multiple restaurants and wineries will be serving and music will be provided by The Lyin’ I’s, an Eagles tribute band. Tickets are available online for $40 and at the door for $55.
