Jennifer Hagan and John Jaquish co-chaired an elegant Soirée, which served as the annual benefit event for UCSF Partners in Care on April 29, 2017. UCSF medical center executives and community leaders joined UCSF Partners in Care board members and supporters for an evening of music and mingling in the penthouse suite at the Fairmont Hotel atop Nob Hill.
The event honored retiring UCSF Health Senior Vice President Ken Jones for his many years of leadership and support for Partners in Care and its programs. Pianist Kelly Park performed during cocktails at 5:30 pm, followed by the high-energy dance band Pop Rocks from 7:30 until midnight.
