Save the date for an inspirational evening as we honor Larry’s outstanding leadership and exceptional contributions to the creative energy of the Bay Area and beyond—and celebrate BAMPFA’s exciting future!

Join us in the beautifully remodeled Pauley Ballroom on the UC Berkeley campus for cocktails, a seated dinner, special entertainment, and an auction of engaging and unique experiences, all benefitting the extraordinary art, film, and creative programming you’ll find no where else but BAMPFA. Part of the evening will be devoted to celebrating Larry’s contributions to BAMPFA, and to the arts.
