Heart & Soul, a Fundraiser for Tuition Assistance
@ Gallery 308 at Fort Mason
5:30 P.M. - 10:00 P.M.

Save the date Saturday, April 13, 2024 for the event of the year:  Brandeis kicks off its season of 60th anniversary celebrations with our annual spring event ‘Heart & Soul’ - a benefit for tuition assistance. Join us as we honor 60 years of Brandeis and enjoy an evening inspired by love for our school as the 'Heart and Soul' of Jewish education in San Francisco with live music, dancing, food, and classic cocktails. 

We invite everyone to get involved through sponsorships, a live and online auction, a tuition assistance fund-a-need, event tickets, and raffle sales.

To make this event a success each year, we need your support.
