City Hearts invites the public to PHOTOGRAPHY, FUN AND 3 CHEFS, a new fundraising event. 38 photographic images will be displayed 'anonymously' and guests will "CHOOSE!" by bidding on their favorite photos. Will winners take home the work of an internationally acclaimed photographer? or the inspiring work of a young City Hearts' "Artist of the Future?"

At 5 p.m., all photographers' names will be revealed and highest bidders announced. A special, limited edition 2013 Calendar of images, selected by Julian Cox, Chief Curator of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, will go on sale after the Auction. This event represents a thrilling new approach to the silent auction format.

Participating Photographers: Jeff Bridges, Armando Arorizo, Robin Becker, Patrick Bolton, James Chressanthis, Annabel Clark, Katie Dalsemer, Anthony Friedkin, Michael Grecco, Jane Kerr, Douglas Kirkland, Alan Levenson, John Lewis, Brian Nieman, Martin Parr, Nancy Rosen, Jane Seymour, David Skernick, Claire James Steinberg, Arthur Tress, Raul Vega, Felice Willat, Lloyd Ziff, City Hearts International Spokesperson, Max Adler, and City Hearts aspiring "Artists of the Future".

International Fun: Our friends around the world can share in this fun event by hosting a "mini-fundraiser" to benefit City Hearts. The guests at the Party that raises the most in donations for City Hearts, will each receive a special limited edition photograph by Raul Vega of Max Adler (Glee star, aka Dave Karovsky), who is City Hearts International Spokesperson.
