Save the date for a very special evening to celebrate the Bay Area’s agricultural bounty at our annual fundraiser, Savor the Greenbelt. Savor wine, hors d’oeuvres, and views of the city at sunset from the Fairmont San Francisco’s beautiful rooftop garden. Then move inside for a gourmet, farm-to-fork dinner sourced from our Bay Area farms and ranches in the one-of-a-kind, French Provincial-inspired, Gold Room. Enjoy lively conversation exploring the connections between the Bay Area’s spectacular greenbelt and key current issues such as water, food, climate change, and the future of our cities and towns. Sponsorship opportunities for organizations are available here.

Executive Chef Oscar Gonzalez of the Fairmont San Francisco
Executive Chef Oscar Gonzalez brings more than a decade of experience and a lifetime of culinary passion to his role at the iconic Fairmont San Francisco. His culinary philosophy focuses on simplicity—treating every ingredient with passion and respect—and he views the positive relationship between chefs and the purveyors and growers they work with as a top priority. Recognizing the importance of sustainable and locally grown food, Chef Gonzalez often incorporates ingredients from Fairmont San Francisco’s very own rooftop—sourcing honey from their apiary and herbs and flowers from the Chef’s bountiful garden.
