20th Annual After Hours at Fairytale Town to Benefit Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center, Sept. 14th, 2012

2012 – A year of celebration!  This year marks the 20th Annual After Hours at Fairytale Town event and the 40th Anniversary for Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center.

Come celebrate with us at After Hours 2012 on Friday, September 14, 2012

Fairytale Town, 3901 Land Park Drive, Sacramento, CA 95822

The History
In 1992 the Board of Directors of Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center (SAEHC) and a group of dedicated volunteers created the very first After Hours event known simply as “Fairytale Town After Hours.”  The event brought local restaurants, wineries and entertainment together to raise funds for the homeless families served by SAEHC.  This year marks the 20th anniversary of this special event. Again this year, After Hours guests will enjoy food and beverages, music, and a large silent auction in the unique setting of Fairytale Town at William Land Park.  This event continues to honor the dream of a safe and permanent home for every child and community member staying at a homeless shelter.

The Venue
Step back into childhood at Sacramento’s fabled Fairytale Town in scenic William Land Park.  No outdoor venue in Sacramento could be a more magical setting for the 20th Annual After Hours fundraising event.  Walk amidst magical character tableaus such as The Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe Slide, the Crooked Mile, King Arthur’s Castle and more! The event will be entirely outdoors with restaurants and wineries set up along the many paths to enchantment.

The Restaurants & Wineries
The After Hours fundraising events have boasted an average of 50 fabulous local restaurants and wineries each year, all offering tasty creations.   Past participants have included such icons as Tower Cafe, Biba Restaurant, 4th Street Grille, Mulvaney’s B&L, Aioli Bodega Espanola, Terre Rouge & Easton Winery, Boeger Winery, Van der Vijer Estate, Sierra Nevada Brewing and many, many more. This year’s line-up promises an equally impressive list of notable and local taste sensations.

The Auction
The After Hours event would not be complete without the amazing array of items donated from local and regional businesses and auctioned off in our silent auction.  Guests peruse tables of silent auction items designed to intrigue the senses and appeal to the spirit including unique golf packages, trips to Disneyland, local retreats such as Bodega Bay and Lake Tahoe, gourmet dinners, and more!

The Beneficiary
Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center’s mission is to provide assistance to homeless individuals and families and help them achieve self-reliance.  We see the success of this mission reflected in the many people whose lives are changed through our programs.  The proceeds from the After Hours event benefits homeless families here in Sacramento and provides them with much needed support and resources.  These much needed funds often pay for things that we can’t obtain through our other funding sources.
