Some 31 wreaths created by local designers and 14 pieces of art curated by Stephanie Breitbard Fine Arts added to the auction mix. A framed photograph by Danielle Mourning received the top bid of $3,200 from Leith Barry. Tops in the wreath category, a design by Jim Misner for Tineke Triggs’ Artistic Designs for Living garnered $1,000. Some 400 supporters attended the event that benefited Bay Area shelters including Compass Family Services, Hamilton Family Center, Rafael House, Star Family Home and St. Joseph’s Family Center.
