To provide safe haven

The orphanage is located on the century old Salomon family homestead, and director Philippe Salomon will be present at the fundraiser.

Proceeds from this year’s event will help buy ovens to prepare the 90 daily meals served at the orphanage. The event includes a Creole-style dinner, and music by the Steve Rubardt Trio and DJ Robert Roots. Admission is $25 in advance at or $30 at the door, 1280 North McDowell Boulevard, Petaluma.
