You are cordially invited to the first great networking party of the year!

Our combined Inaugural and Fundraising Gala!


 Set in the Mural Room of the aptly named Bellevue Club overlooking Lake Merritt, you will be greeted by the melodious sounds of our distinguished musicians, "The Oberlin Jazz Trio", while enjoying a complimentary glass of champagne and delicious hors d'oeuvres. As guests mingle with old and new friends alike, you will have the opportunity to contemplate numerous silent auction items, all in support of the East Bay WCR. In addition, we will be raffling collections of fine wines. 


A brief ceremony will include the installation of our 2011 Executive Board:


Arlene Baxter, President
Susan Robards, President-Elect
Gina Odom, Vice President of Membership
Denise Kees, Treasurer

We are honored that Bobbie Nelson, 2011 National President-Elect of Women's Council of REALTORS, will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies, and Barbara Safran, 2010 California State President, will install our officers.  Past Presidents of WCR throughout the area will also be honored in the Gavel-Passing ceremony.

Music will resume for dessert and final bidding opportunities!
