John - I hope to see you there!

Here is the latest info:

As Denise said, Saving Grace will be held at the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco on October 27, 2006. http://www.san-francisco.intercontinental.com/ There is a block of discounted rooms for a first come-first serve basis. They are $229/night versus the regular price of $289/night, just call the hotel directly and let them know that you're with the Preeclampsia Foundation. For more affordable options, check out any of the travel websites and it'll just be a quick cab ride. If you need help with that, let me know!

The event is being chaired by Lauren Larsen - a Preeclampisa Survisor and National Blood Donation Avocate, and William C. Weldon, Chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson.

The individual tickets are $125/person and Corporate Sponsorships start at $5000 for a table of 10. If you'd like to help out with Corporate Sponsorships, contact Lauren at [email protected]

I will continue to post updates when they become available.

Thanks Julie.
We sat with Lauren at Saving Grace in Minneapolis last November. We're hoping to make San Francisco this year.

I haven't seen any information regarding the Saving Grace gala in San Francisco in October. Would someone please post an update?
