Faconnable recently kicked off the Holiday season with a party benefiting Children of Shelters, an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children in family shelters.

Buzz among the guests centered on what to expect at this year’s “Jingle & Mingle” fundraiser, taking place December 6, 2012. Now in its 11th year, the annual fundraiser is one of the highlights of the Holiday season in San Francisco, as guests get to bid on specially made one-of-a-kind wreaths created by the City’s best designers, and other notables. This year’s event co-chairs, Maryam Muduroglu, Jessica Kaludis and Kate Sheridan Chung, are sure to create a fantastic experience.

Another holiday highlight you will also want to add to your calendar if you have kids is “Santafest”, on December 8, 2012. The morning family party features gingerbread house decorating, crafts, breakfast, photos with Santa and much more!
