Holiday Cheers, San Francisco Opera Guild’s annual holiday celebration was a benefit for free opera performances at Bay Area pediatric hospitals, senior centers and hospice programs during the month of December.  Nearly 200 guests attended Holiday Cheers at Alexandra’s atop the Westin St. Francis Hotel on December 7, 2011, and helped raise over $80,000. Event co-chairs Nafiseh Lindberg and Michelle Marie Ritchie served up holiday cheer with Scottish flair — fine wines, decadent scotches and Highland-style entertainment.
